Publisher Description

Don’t panic! The Hitchhiker’s saga returns once again with a full-cast dramatisation of So Long and Thanks For All the Fish, the fourth book in Douglas Adams’s famous ‘trilogy in five parts’.

‘At the risk of being controversial, it’s better than the book... Hitchhiking is back – long may it continue.’ Guy Clapperton, Radio Times

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.

But Ford Prefect is on to something which might well burst Arthur’s bubble. There is, after all, something very fishy about his girlfriend’s feet, and what has happened to all the dolphins? Perhaps, at last, all will be revealed in God’s Last Message to His Creation…

Simon Jones returns as Arthur, Geoffrey McGivern as Ford and Stephen Moore as Marvin. William Franklyn is the Book and Jane Horrocks is Fenchurch. Guest stars include Stephen Fry, June Whitfield, Bill Paterson, Arthur Smith, Sir Patrick Moore, Jackie Mason and Christian Slater.

This extended edition features 30 minutes of material not heard on BBC Radio 4.

The Wanderer ,


Well the series is the great literary and dramatic piece of all time, but i'm really disapointed in those who rated this series so low just because of the sound quality, every time someone protests like that Doulgas Adam's great masterpiece is officially rated lower through no fault of his own... cut it out!!!

Suffer The Poor Sound On This Audiobook

A great and funny drama ruined by the quality of the sound. You could probably pick up a better version elsewhere.

Terrible sound quality, avoid

I have recently received a refund for this item, as the sound quality is extremely poor. This version has a very low bit rate and is in mono. iTunes assure me they are investigating this, but you might as well buy the original CDs, as they are in glorious stereo, and are in fact cheaper.
