Life, the Universe and Everything features all the surviving members of the main original cast, with Simon Jones reprising the role of the hapless Dent, Geoffrey McGivern as Ford Prefect, Susan Sheridan as Trillian, Mark Wing-Davey as Zaphod Beeblebrox and Stephen Moore as Marvin the Paranoid Android.
Richard Griffiths takes over from the late Richard Vernon as Slartibartfast, Roger Gregg provides the voice of Eddie the computer following the death of David Tate, and in the narrator role of the Book, the voice of William Franklin will be heard instead of the late Peter Jones.
[Adams] actually wrote half an hour of the [new] series, which appears in episodes one and two. So there's half an hour of totally original stuff," said Dirk Maggs [writer & director of the new series].
Another yet-to-be-recorded eight-part series is planned for next year, adapting the two remaining books, So Long and Thanks for all the Fish and Mostly Harmless.
