Cannot recommend enough, it's over a year since I listened to it and it is still firmly with me.
Suffice it to say that this is another BBC Radio production which belongs on the same pedestal as the original "Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy".
It is great fun to listen, both the performances and the story itself. I have listened to it couple of times now, still not yet get bored;D
If this story has sequel, wish the same cast can do the Radio Drama of that one too.
