Just a reminder that, today, the Tertiary Phase of The Hitchhikers' Guide to the Galaxy, the long-awaited "third season" of the classic radio serial, begins today on BBC Radio 4. The serial, based on the legendary Douglas Adams' third book, "Life, The Universe and Everything" -- itself based on Adams' aborted "Doctor Who and the Krikkitmen" screenplay -- features five members of the original cast from the 1970's as well as a host of new cast members. The first series of 6 new episodes begins on Tuesday 21 September at 6.30pm, with repeats on Thursdays at 11.00pm on Radio 4. For detailed information on the making of the program as well as to listen via the Internet, click here; each episode will be available for 7 days following the Thursday evening repeats. The six episodes will run through as many weeks and the entire story will be released on CD in late October. (Technically no, this isn't Doctor Who news... but for Hitchhikers we always gladly make the exception!)
