This week we’re talking Slartibartfast, Zaphod Beeblebrox, and Ford Prefect. No, we aren’t advertising for some weird diet shake, an odd new laundry detergent, or a car that ceased production in 1961…it’s just a few of the interestingly named characters from the 1981 BBC TV adaptation of THE HITCHHIKER'S GUIDE TO THE GALAXY. Ashley, a huge fan of the book series, wonders if one needs a live action version of a near perfect story. For Dave, who knew the story from books, radio and the series, his pick is pure nostalgia. Will it stand the test of time? Speaking of time, we’re recording this episode live-ish from GALLIFREY ONE 2019, the US’s largest fan-run DOCTOR WHO convention. We’ll rundown some of our favorite moments from the conference so far, plus give a brief history of how Dave and Ashley got into WHO in the first place.
