4th in the series and really not one you can jump into – so stop trying to save time and start at the beginning to have any hope of understanding what is going on! The Earth was gone – now it’s back (thanks to the Dolphins) as a MkII. We at last see the back of Marvin, well he was 37 times older than the universe and hear God’s final message – glad that’s all clear then.
Even 30 years on this is still a fresh and funny series of stories, whether you read them or listen to the original BBC radio shows. The anarchic, or ‘random’ to use modern parlance, plot, place settings and characters makes them more appealing than a Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster!
