Douglas Adams’ Birthday Celebrated on Google
We’re not big fans of celebrating the birthday’s of those that are sadly no longer with us, but it’s worth sharing with Doctor Who fans today that Google is commemorating what would have been Douglas Adams’ 61st birthday with some awesome themed pages.
For those of you unaware, Douglas Adams sadly died on May 11th 2001 after a successful career as a writer. Best known for The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, Adams was working as script editor on Doctor Who when the original radio series of his magnum opus was in development.
With serials The Pirate Planet and City of Death to his name as well as the legendary, incomplete Shada, Adams would have been a memorable name in Doctor Who‘s history without then going on to find success with his own characters.
