With the death of Douglas Adams any hope of another radio series died with him. I loved listening to the Hitchhiker's Guide broadcast because there was nothing like it. It did something the books could not, it brought a voice to the characters I loved and loathed. Now 9 years after his death his words are still entertaining and thought provoking. The actors offer one of the best audio performances I have ever heard.
Now to the sad part. Knowing that there are no more plans for the radio series, there is a 6th book in the making, it was bittersweet listening to the last episode. There has never been a series like The Hitchhiker's Guide and there will probably never be another.
So here is to Douglas Adams, you are missed.
