“Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy Radio Show gets a big thumbs up…a fun ride.”                                                                                               Patrick Marmion, Daily Mail, 15th June, 2012

“It was thrilling to see Hitchhiker’s performed live, especially with members of the original cast.  Jones (who was naturally dressed in a dressing gown for the entire show) was fantastic as Dent …A standing ovation ended a show which [Douglas] Adams himself would have surely been proud of.”                                                        

Northampton Chronicle & Echo, June 16th, 2012   

“…it came as no surprise that the original cast members, with scripts in hand, were warmly greeted when they gathered in front of their microphones … Dirk Maggs… got around the static nature of a radio show performance by having a light show and a screen which helpfully projected each entry from The Hitchhiker’s Guide…this device also provided the unexpectedly moving finale, where a giant image of the late author Douglas Adams was applauded by the cast members in tribute to his great work and his astonishingly fertile imagination.”                          

         Alan Watson, Liverpool Echo, June 19th, 2012

“…an evening of many incidental joys as we are reunited with fine line after fine line…an imaginative and entertaining celebration…”

Dominic Maxwell, The Times, 16th June, 2012

“Whether you’re an avid aficionado or merely one for comic value then this show is for you. Highly amusing and not to be missed.”  

Dani Telford, LS Media, June 18th, 2012  


“The show itself is a technical triumph taking every aspect of the show produced so far and placing it firmly in the 21st Century…I’m not going to spoil the story for newcomers to The Guide but suffice to say that this version is perhaps the best that I have witnessed so far.”                            

Sebastian Gahan, Liverpool-Live, June 18th, 1012
