    This can fuck off.


    Although I haven’t read the sixth book this new series is a welcome surprise to me, mainly because I thought Dirk Maggs did such a good job of series 3,4 & 5.


    I didn’t care for And Another Thing… or The Tertiary Phase at all (and didn’t bother with the fourth and fifth series.) So, yeah, what Capps said.


    And Another Thing wasn’t a completely unenjoyable reading experience but it never really felt like anything more than fan-fiction.


    I’ve got And Another Thing, but I’ve only ever read it the once. In fact, I’m not sure I even read it all. :/


    I really liked Dirk Maggs’ Adventures of Sexton Blake, the Batman/Superman plays he did and the first Dirk Gently (his Long Dark Tea-Time of the Soul wasn’t so good), but this is definitely unnecessary.

    And Another Thing wasn’t a completely unenjoyable reading experience

    “That book is one of the least benightedly unenjoyable pieces of text it has been my profound lack of pleasure not to be able to avoid reading.”


    It’s been years now, but I remember starting And Another Thing. I have a memory of reading the first few chapters, but then nothing. I guess I got bored? I don’t remember thinking to myself that I was bored with it. One day I just kind of didn’t read any further.

    Glowing endorsement, right there.

    That said, I will definitely listen to this. Considering that it’d only be six episodes, even if it’s not particularly good I’d probably stick with it just to see where it goes. There will at least be the novelty of getting more material with the radio cast, whom I love.


    I find these things to be pretty slow burning. I listened to the first four episodes of The Tertiary Phase in 2004 then gave up. In 2011 The Pod Delusion did an excellent Douglas Adams tribute and that’s when I caught up on the other radio shows and discovered The Salmon Of Doubt, which is up there with IWCD as one of my all time faves.
