The first series was repeated twice in alone and many more times in the next few years. This led to an LP re-recording , produced independently of the BBC for sale, and a further adaptation of the series as a book. A second radio series, which consisted of a further five episodes, and bringing the total number of episodes to 12, was broadcast in Jones was cast after a three-month-long casting search and after at least three actors including Michael Palin turning down the role.

This mix was also featured on DVD releases of the third radio series. The theme tune used for the radio, television, LP and film versions is " Journey of the Sorcerer ", an instrumental piece composed by Bernie Leadon and recorded by The Eagles on their album One of These Nights. Only the transmitted radio series used the original recording; a sound-alike cover by Tim Souster was used for the LP and TV series, another arrangement by Joby Talbot was used for the film, and still another arrangement, this time by Philip Pope , was recorded to be released with the CDs of the last three radio series.

Apparently, Adams chose this song for its futuristic-sounding nature, but also for the fact that it had a banjo in it, which, as Geoffrey Perkins recalls, Adams said would give an "on the road, hitch-hiking feel" to it. They were re-released in , and at this time Adams suggested that they could retitle Fits the First to Sixth as "The Primary Phase" and Fits the Seventh to Twelfth as "The Secondary Phase" instead of just "the first series" and "the second series".

The episodes were recorded in late , but actual transmission was delayed while an agreement was reached with The Walt Disney Company over Internet re-broadcasts, as Disney had begun pre-production on the film. The third series was broadcast in September and October The fourth and fifth were broadcast in May and June , with the fifth series following immediately after the fourth.

CD releases accompanied the transmission of the final episode in each series. The adaptation of the third novel followed the book very closely, which caused major structural issues in meshing with the preceding radio series in comparison to the second novel. Because many events from the radio series were omitted from the second novel, and those that did occur happened in a different order, the two series split in completely different directions.

The last two adaptations vary somewhat—some events in Mostly Harmless are now foreshadowed in the adaptation of So Long and Thanks For All The Fish, while both include some additional material that builds on incidents in the third series to tie all five and their divergent plotlines together, most especially including the character Zaphod more prominently in the final chapters and addressing his altered reality to include the events of the Secondary Phase.

While Mostly Harmless originally contained a rather bleak ending, Dirk Maggs created a different ending for the transmitted radio version, ending it on a much more upbeat note, reuniting the cast one last time.

The core cast for the third to fifth radio series remained the same, except for the replacement of Peter Jones by William Franklyn as the Book, and Richard Vernon by Richard Griffiths as Slartibartfast, since both had died. Some even read my books. The plots of the television and radio series are more or less the same as that of the first two novels, though some of the events occur in a different order and many of the details are changed.

Much of parts five and six of the radio series were written by John Lloyd , but his material did not make it into the other versions of the story and is not included here. However, they are not the final version that Adams produced. He was working on a third Dirk Gently novel, under the working title The Salmon of Doubt , but felt that the book was not working and abandoned it. He described Mostly Harmless as "a very bleak book" and said he "would love to finish Hitchhiker on a slightly more upbeat note".

Adams also remarked that if he were to write a sixth instalment, he would at least start with all the characters in the same place. It was first published in , initially in paperback, by Pan Books , after BBC Publishing had turned down the offer of publishing a novelization, an action they would later regret. A hardback edition was published by Harmony Books, a division of Random House in the United States in October , and the US paperback edition was promoted by the give-away of 3, free copies in the magazine Rolling Stone to build word of mouth.

In , Del Rey Books re-released the Hitchhiker series with new covers for the release of the movie. The Restaurant at the End of the Universe[ edit ] Main article: The Restaurant at the End of the Universe In The Restaurant at the End of the Universe published in , Zaphod is separated from the others and finds he is part of a conspiracy to uncover who really runs the Universe. Zaphod meets Zarniwoop , a conspirator and editor for The Guide, who knows where to find the secret ruler.

Zaphod becomes briefly reunited with the others for a trip to Milliways, the restaurant of the title. Zaphod and Ford decide to steal a ship from there, which turns out to be a stunt ship pre-programmed to plunge into a star as a special effect in a stage show. Unable to change course, the main characters get Marvin to run the teleporter they find in the ship, which is working other than having no automatic control someone must remain behind to operate it , and Marvin seemingly sacrifices himself.

Zaphod and Trillian discover that the Universe is in the safe hands of a simple man living on a remote planet in a wooden shack with his cat. Ford and Arthur, meanwhile, end up on a spacecraft full of the outcasts of the Golgafrinchan civilization.

Adams himself considered Restaurant to be his best novel of the five. There they run into Slartibartfast, who enlists their aid in preventing galactic war. Long ago, the people of Krikkit attempted to wipe out all life in the Universe, but they were stopped and imprisoned on their home planet; now they are poised to escape. With the help of Marvin, Zaphod, and Trillian, our heroes prevent the destruction of life in the Universe and go their separate ways.

Its story was based on a treatment Adams had written for a Doctor Who theatrical release, [31] with the Doctor role being split between Slartibartfast to begin with , and later Trillian and Arthur. So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish[ edit ].
