Dirk Gently  The Long Dark Tea-Time Of The Soul

Dirk Gently The Long Dark Tea-Time Of The Soul

Author: Douglas Adams Narrator: Harry Enfield Release Date: 01/11/2008

Harry Enfield exuberantly returns as Dirk Gently, who, fallen on hard times and dressed as a gypsy woman, is using his irritatingly accurate clairvoyant powers to read palms. He is saved when a frantic client turns up with a ludicrous story about being stalked by a goblin waving a contract accompanied by a hairy, green-eyed, scythe-wielding monster. When Detective Superintendent Gilks decides a headless body found in a sealed room is the result of a particularly irritating suicide, Dirk is plunged into a mystery where the interconnectedness of all things is tested to the limit... This is the second of three series adapted from the 'Dirk Gently' books, directed by Dirk Maggs (chosen by Douglas Adams to conclude the award-winning Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy). Guest stars include Peter Davison, Jan Ravens, Philip Jackson, John Fortune, Morwenna Banks and Stephen Moore, as well as returning cast members Olivia Colman, Jim Carter and Billy Boyd. This release contains over thirty minutes of additional unbroadcast material.

Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency

Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency

Author: Douglas Adams Narrator: Harry Enfield Release Date: 01/11/2007

Dirk Gently has an unshakeable belief in the interconnectedness of all things, but his Holistic Detective Agency mainly succeeds in tracking down missing cats for old ladies. Then Dirk stumbles upon an old friend behaving bizarrely - and is drawn into a four-billion year old mystery that must be solved if the human race is to avoid immediate extinction. Harry Enfield stars as Douglas Adams's much-loved psychic sleuth, with Billy Boyd, Andrew Sachs, Jim Carter and Olivia Colman ('Peepshow'). Considered by many Adams fans to be as funny - if darker - than The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy, this adventure features everything from quantum physics to missing cats, via Coleridge, Bach and an Electric Monk. This is the first of two series adapted from the 'Dirk Gently' books, directed by Dirk Maggs, who was chosen by Douglas Adams to conclude the award-winning The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy, and this release contains nearly one hour of additional unbroadcast material.

Doctor Who and the Krikkitmen: 4th Doctor Novel

Doctor Who and the Krikkitmen: 4th Doctor Novel

Author: Douglas Adams, James Goss Narrator: Dan Starkey Release Date: 01/01/2018

Dan Starkey reads this brand new novel based on a storyline by Douglas Adams. The Doctor promised Romana the end of the universe, so she's less than impressed when what she gets is a cricket match. But then the award ceremony is interrupted by eleven figures in white uniforms and peaked skull helmets, wielding bat-shaped weapons that fire lethal bolts of light into the screaming crowd. The Krikkitmen are back. Millions of years ago, the people of Krikkit learned they were not alone in the universe, and promptly launched a xenophobic crusade to wipe out all other life-forms. After a long and bloody conflict, the Time Lords imprisoned Krikkit within an envelope of Slow Time, a prison that could only be opened with the Wicket Gate key, a device that resembles to human eyes, at least an oversized set of cricket stumps. From Earth to Gallifrey, from Bethselamin to Devalin, from Krikkit to Mareeve II to the far edge of infinity, the Doctor and Romana are tugged into a pan-galactic conga with fate as they rush to stop the Krikkitmen gaining all five pieces of the key. If they fail, the entire cosmos faces a fiery retribution that will leave nothing but ashes. Duration: 9 hours 40 mins approx.

Doctor Who und die Krikkit-Krieger - Doctor Who Romane 8 (Gekürzt)

Doctor Who und die Krikkit-Krieger - Doctor Who Romane 8 (Gekürzt)

Author: Douglas Adams, James Goss Narrator: Michael Schwarzmaier Release Date: 01/09/2019

Ein wiederentdecktes Manuskript von Millionen-Bestseller-Autor Douglas Adams, vollendet von James Goss, Vorlage für Band 3 der PER-ANHALTER-DURCH DIE GALAXIS-Trilogie: Das Leben, das Universum und der ganze Rest. Der Doktor hat Romana versprochen, sie mit zum Ende des Universums zu nehmen. Ihre Erwartung ist also hoch - und wird bitter enttäuscht, als er sie nur zu einem Cricket-Spiel bringt. Doch während der Siegeszeremonie tauchen plötzlich 11 Gestalten in weißen Uniformen mit spitzen geschlossenen Helmen auf und schwingen schlägerförmige Waffen, die tödliche Lichtblitze verschießen. Die Krikkit-Roboter sind zurück. Millionen Jahre zuvor hatten die Bewohner von Krikkit erfahren, dass sie nicht alleine im Universum sind (was sie bis dahin fest glaubten) - und beschlossen, die Realität ihrer Weltsicht anzupassen. So begann der erste Krikkit-Krieg, mit dem Ziel, alle Lebensformen im Universum auszulöschen. Nach einem langen, blutigen Kampf gelang es den Timelords schließlich, den Planeten Krikkit in einem Zeitlupenfeld einzuschließen, ein Gefängnis, das nur mit Hilfe eines Wicket-Schlüssels geöffnet werden kann, einem Gerät, das (zumindest in den Augen eines Menschen) wie ein übergroßer Cricket-Stab aussieht und sich aus fünf Teilen zusammensetzt. Nun beginnt für Romana und den Doktor eine wilde Verfolgungsjagd quer durch die Galaxis in dem verzweifelten Versuch, die Krikkit-Krieger aufzuhalten und zu verhindern, dass sie alle fünf Teile des Schlüssels ausfindig machen und zusammensetzen, um ihr Volk zu befreien - was fatale Folgen hätte für das Leben, das Universum und den ganzen Rest ... Ende der 70er Jahre war Douglas Adams Chefautor der erfolgreichen BBC-Serie Doctor Who. Viele seiner genialen Ideen wurden damals in der Serie nicht umgesetzt, und er verarbeitete sie später in seinen eigenen Werken - so auch diese abenteuerliche Geschichte um die Krikkit-Krieger, aus der der 3. Teil seiner legendären Per-Anhalter-Durch-Die-Galaxis-Trilogie wurde: Das Leben, das Universum und der ganze Rest. Ein Fest nicht nur für die Fans der Serie DOCTOR WHO, sondern auch für alle Freunde der Anhalter-Trilogie!

Doctor Who: City of Death: A 4th Doctor novelisation

Author: Douglas Adams, James Goss Narrator: Lalla Ward Release Date: 01/05/2015

An unabridged reading of the brand new novelisation of a classic Fourth Doctor TV story by Douglas AdamsThe Doctor takes Romana for a holiday in Paris - a city which, like a fine wine, has a bouquet all its own. But the TARDIS arrives in 1979, a table-wine year, whose vintage is soured by cracks in the very fabric of time itself. Soon the Time Lords are embroiled in an audacious alien scheme which encompasses home-made time machines, the theft of the Mona Lisa, the resurrection of the much-feared Jagaroth race, and the beginning (and quite possibly the end) of all life on Earth. Aided by British private detective Duggan, the Doctor and Romana must thwart the machinations of the suave, mysterious Count Scarlioni - all twelve of him - if the human race has any chance of survival.

Doctor Who: Shada

Doctor Who: Shada

Author: Douglas Adams, Gareth Roberts Narrator: John Leeson, Lalla Ward Release Date: 01/03/2012

The Doctor's old friend and fellow Time Lord Professor Chronotis has retired to Cambridge University - where nobody will notice if he lives for centuries. But now he needs help from the Doctor, Romana and K-9. When he left Gallifrey he took with him a few little souvenirs - most of them are harmless. But one of them is extremely dangerous. The Worshipful and Ancient Law of Gallifrey isn't a book for Time Tots. It is one of the Artefacts, dating from the dark days of Rassilon. It must not be allowed to fall into the wrong hands. The sinister Skagra most definitely has the wrong hands. He wants the book. He wants to discover the truth behind Shada. And he wants the Doctor's mind... Based on the scripts for the original television series by the legendary Douglas Adams, Shada retells an adventure that never made it to the screen.

The TARDIS materialises on a planet where the age of prosperity comes often, and precious jewels line the streets like litter.

As the Doctor, Romana and K9 become entangled in local events they are caught between the apparently insane Captain and apparently sinister Mentiads. But then the Doctor makes a terrible discovery beneath the surface of the planet, and realises the true nature of the Captains operations.
