    A Special Edition of the original radio series The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, first broadcast on BBC Radio 4 in 1978 and recently voted the Nation's Favourite Audiobook in a Guardian poll. Starring Peter Jones, Simon Jones, Geoffrey McGivern, Mark Wing-Davey, Susan Sheridan and Stephen Moore, these six episodes (Fit the First to Fit the Sixth) have been remastered to modern-day standards by Dirk Maggs, and for the first time feature Philip Pope's arrangement of the familiar theme tune.

    Story

    Ed Reardon's Week continues where it left off at the end of series two. and is certainly as brilliant as the first two series.

    The now established characters continue to entertain with entertaining snippets of their back stories adding flesh to the bones.

    Sally Hawkins returns to the role of Ping, playing her with a straighter bat than Barunka O'Shaughnessy did in series 2.

    Episode three is a particular gem thanks to the return of Bert Wang (played by Geoff McGivern). Philip Jackson (as Jaz Milvane) oozes self-assurance and the chippy banter between Jaz and Ed is very clever.

    It's funny, it's clever and it's acerbic.

    It's brilliant.

    Ed Reardon (Christopher Douglas) - author, pipe smoker, fare-dodger, and master of the abusive email - returns for a third series. In these six episodes, Ed finds his literary juices are flowing after a new commission, and a visit by his father brings thoughts of inheritance to the misanthropic writer's mind. As well as venting his spleen writing corporate scripts, Ed also uses his skills to update obituaries - and produces a savage profile of an old friend.

    I'm delighted to say that Ed Reardon's Week series 2 is as thoroughly enjoyable as the fantastic series 1.

    The characters are more established and the blend is very strong. The cast remains mainly the same with the exception of Barunka O'Shaughnessy who is parachuted into Ping's shoes and really takes the character up a notch or two.

    Ed's life continues to struggle along from one disaster to another with a couple of moments to give him something to smile about.

    His banter with Jaz Milvane (played by Philip Jackson) just gets better and better.

    I'm becoming a big Ed Reardon fan. Where can I buy an Elgar t-shirt?

    Many of the details in this audiobook you may have read elsewhere. On the other hand, many more are untold stories. If it were not for Francis Stacey, Eric Stacey's widow, this book would not have been made. For it was Fran who wanted, encouraged, and supported the story about a special man in a magical time. Eric Stacey from Ramsgate (Kent) England, an assistant director, who was often relegated to the sidelines as a traffic cop, and his ultimate work seen in Gone with the Wind.

    This week on Car Talk, a Massachusetts man begins speaking with a French accent after an accident. Thus we are introduced to Foreign Accent Syndrome, a neurological oddity which Tommy will be happy to explain, if he can ever stop laughing. Elsewhere, what goes in, must come out-unless "it" is a piece of the Berlin Wall, stuffed into the trunk of a BMW. A few thousand miles away, John is having the opposite problem-his Bronco's dipstick refuses to stay in. Also, should Julie fess up about her fender bender in the family van? And, Crystie dropped a nail into her gas tank, and is worried about an explosion. Her mechanic and the Chevy dealer refuse to take her seriously-and she thinks Tom and Ray will? Find out, this week on Car Talk.
