Hitchhiker's return to the money well?

    Umpteen years ago, I found myself tuning into a bizarre little show on Radio 4 called 'The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy.' It was unlike anything I had ever heard (although radio comedy could get pretty surreal) and I remember hoping it wouldn't vanish without trace.

    A couple of days ago, I found myself listening to the latest series and thinking - 'yeah, it's all right. Wonder what's on the other channel?'

    I get that it's never going to have the same original impact, nothing will ever repeat that by doing what it did before - but I was a bit disappointed it didn't really seem to try. Don't know what anyone else thought?

    I was looking forward to it but having read enough comments about it, I never got round to listening. It's not Douglas Adams, it's not going to be the same. I think the originals are just as funny as ever though.
