... on any mortgage secured upon it. Please remember the force of gravity can go up as well as down.

I much preferred today's episode - they'd dropped all the rehashed material from the earlier series - none of that silly cutting between William Frankyn & Peter Jones - & got straight on with the Wikkit robots, Slartibartfast (it was disconcerting having him played by Richard Griffiths instead of Richard Vernon - they may have the same first name but they sound nothing alike), & the SEP field. Despite what appears to be the general consensus that Life, The Universe & Everything is the weakest of the 5 books it is probably my favourite. I'm not mad keen on the 1st 2 cos I prefer the Radio series & I didn't go a bundle on the last 2 just cos - but I do like Life etc - possibly cos DNA originally intended it as a Dr Who episode:-)

I'm enjoying it too, I liked the bit you've quoted, I though Slartibartfast sounded odd didn't realise he was different

it is many many years since I listened to the radio version, in fact it's years since I saw it on tv

I've asked for them on D for Christmas :-)
