    Don't panic! The Hitchhiker's saga returns once again with a brand new full-cast dramatisation of So Long and Thanks For All the Fish, the fourth book in Douglas Adams's famous 'trilogy in five parts'. The Earth has miraculously reappeared and, even more miraculously, Arthur Dent has found it. Returning to his cottage after...well...ages, he falls in love with the girl of his dreams.

    Does what the book doesn't & blends perfectly...

    So Long & Thanks For All The Fish is quite a tough read but Dirk Maggs and his team have really slapped it into shape and made a very, very good and e..Show More »

    So long and thanks for all the laughs...sorry!

    Fabulous.

    Stunning performances you've come to expect from the well-oiled (in all senses I would imagine) machine that is the Hitchhiker'..Show More »
