Douglas Adams Era Profiled
BBC Radio 4 are producing a new documentary looking at former Doctor Who script editor Douglas Adams’ association with the series, from being a young fan in the 1960s to writing episodes and script editing the Doctor Who in the late 1970s.
Titled The Doctor and Douglas, the project was revealed on ZZ9, the official Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy Appreciation Society, and is being produced by Simon Barnard of independent radio production company Wise Buddah.
Adams – who as well as being script writer in Season 17 was also responsible for the stories The Pirate Planet, City of Death and the failed Shada – is of course best known for his trilogy in five parts, The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, which shares certain links with Adams’ Doctor Who.
The Doctor and Douglas is expected to be broadcast on BBC Radio 4 in March/April.
