Lalla Ward to Share Memories of Douglas Adams

Former companion Lalla Ward and her husband Richard Dawkins will be sharing memories of the former Doctor Who script editor Douglas Adams at an upcoming memorial.

Entitled Douglas Adams: A Conversation at the End of the Universe, the event will take place at London’s Highgate Cemetery on 11th March 2014, on what would have been Adams’ 62nd birthday.

Lalla Ward, of course, knew the writer through working on Doctor Who, and was introduced to her now-husband Richard Dawkins after meeting him at Adams’ 40th birthday party in 1992. They married later the same year.

Wine will be served at the event and tickets cost a very respectable £7, although we don’t recommend that you just turn up. Because it’s sold out! If you’ve been lucky enough to secure tickets, however, we hope you have a fascinating and enjoyable evening celebrating the life of one of the genre’s most iconic writers.

And most importantly – Don’t Panic.
