While obviously not Doctor Who, the many links between the two phenomena necessitate mention of this, as does my own love of Douglas Adams’ work.
The first trailers and images have been released from the forthcoming “Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy” movie, and are featured in here, at the online home of the movie. The main trailer currently depicts the destruction of Earth by the Vogons, as well as revealing where Zaphod Beeblebrox (Sam Rockwell) keeps his second head….
The film stars Martin Freeman as everyday Earthman Arthur Dent and Mos Def as his alien friend Ford Prefect – meanwhile in a stroke of inspired casting, Marvin the Paranoid Android is voiced by Alan Rickman, while the Vogons are voiced by any of the three League of Gentlemen (which includes of course new series scriptwriter Mark Gatiss) and the great Stephen Fry is the Voice of the book. The film opens on April 29th 2005.
