It was Judiciary Pag's idea that the people of Krikkit be permanently sealed in a Slo-Time envelope, and the seal could only be broken by bringing a special Key to the Lock. When the rest of the universe had ended, the seal would be broken and Krikkit could continue a solitary existence in the universe. This judgement seemed to please everybody except the people of Krikkit themselves, but the only alternative was to face annihilation.
They also share the initials Z. Since the Beeblebrox family lives backwards in time, Pag despite living in the distant past is therefore one of Zaphod's descendants. He is played on radio by Rupert Degas , and appears in Fit the Fifteenth of the radio series. He is German with a Greek mother, and was handed the running of the club by his brother Stavro Mueller, who renamed Club Alpha with his own name.
He appears in the novel Mostly Harmless , in the storyline regarding the final death of Agrajag. A dog belonging to advertiser Will Smithers which was so stupid that it was incapable of eating the right dog food on camera, even when engine oil was poured on the wrong food. It was so named because its hair stuck upright on its head in a way that resembled Ronald Reagan.
It also had an adverse reaction whenever someone said the word " commies ". Ford, Arthur, Trillian and Slartibartfast meet a group of murderous Krikkiters on the surface of their planet. Away from the influence of Hactar, they are troubled by their Elders wanting to destroy the Universe as they are keen to have sporting links with the rest of the Galaxy.
They appear in the novel Life, the Universe and Everything and the Tertiary Phase of the radio series. They're described as being white, but that's nearly all the indication of their appearance in the book series, but the cover of the CD version of the Tertiary Phase features a drawing of the robots, one of them batting a Cricket ball.
On the image, they look rather like Marvin from the movie, only with longer legs, and smaller heads, including sunglasses-like eyes and antennae, like a play on their name. Kwaltz is one of the Vogons on Vogsphere , directing Jeltz's Vogon Constructor Fleet during the demolition of Earth and enforcing the galaxy's bureaucracy. He is the partner and advisor of vice-president Questular Rontok , who seems to care more about winning Zaphod's affections than retrieving the Heart of Gold.
Kwaltz also leads a team of a few hundred Vogons to capture the president's kidnapper in the penultimate scene of the movie, a chase which takes them to Magrathea , where they discover and capture Marvin the Paranoid Android not shown , then to Earth Mark II, where they shoot up Arthur Dent 's house, and are finally defeated by Marvin who gives them all a lethargic and depressed nature, at least for the moment, by use of the Point-of-view gun which, oddly enough, works on non-organic life forms.
Lady Cynthia Fitzmelton is described in the original radio script as "a sort of Margaret Thatcher , Penelope Keith character. She only appears in Fit the First of the radio series, where she was voiced by Jo Kendall.
Her "very splendid and worthwhile" lines were entirely dropped from later versions. The Lajestic Vantrashell of Lob is a small man with a strange hat who guards God's Final Message to His Creation, and who sells Arthur and Fenchurch a ticket to it before passing them on a scooter and imploring them to "keep to the left".
Introduced by Prak in the epilogue to the novel Life, the Universe and Everything , he finally appears towards the end of the novel So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish when we also realize that he has been a regular visitor to Wonko The Sane, who describes angels with golden beards and green wings, Dr Scholl sandals, who eat nachos and do a lot of coke.
He says that he runs a concession stand by the message and when Wonko says "I don't know what that means" he says "no, you don't". Lallafa was an ancient poet who lived in the forests of the Long Lands of Effa. His home inspired him to write a poetic opus known as The Songs of the Long Land on pages made of dried habra leaves. His poems were discovered years after Lallafa's death, and news of them quickly spread.
For centuries, the poems gave inspiration and illumination to many who would otherwise be much more unhappy, and for this they are usually considered around the Galaxy to be the greatest poetic works in existence. This is remarkable because Lallafa wrote his poems without the aid of education or correction fluid. The latter fact attracted the attention of some correction fluid manufacturers from the Mancunian nebula.
The manufacturers worked out that if they could get Lallafa to use their fluids in a variety of leafy colours in the course of his work, their companies would be as successful as the poems themselves. They therefore traveled back in time and persuaded him -- in the book, by explaining the situation, with difficulty; in the radio adaptation, by beating him -- to go along with their plan. The plan succeeded and Lallafa became extremely rich, but spent so much time on chat shows that he never got around to actually writing The Songs.
This was solved by each week, in the past, giving Lallafa a copy of his poems, from the present, and having him write his poems again for the first time, but on the condition that he make the odd mistake and use the correction fluid. Some argued the poems were now worthless, and set out to stop this sort of thing with the Campaign for Real Time a play on Campaign for Real Ale , or CamTim, to keep the flow of history untampered by time travel.
Slartibartfast is a member of CamTim. The necessity for this campaign is contradicted by other events in the novels. For example, when Arthur Dent and Ford Prefect landed on primitive Earth, they decided that nothing they could do would change history. And when Agrajag diverted him to a Cathedral of Doom to try to kill him, Arthur Dent's perpetual victim said that he'd try to kill Dent even if it were a logical impossibility, Dent not having ducked a bullet yet. Lallafa appears in the novel Life, the Universe and Everything and Fit the Fifteenth of the radio series.
A customizer of starships to the rich and famous time travellers, who first appeared in Fit the Fifth of the radio series, and later in the novel The Restaurant at the End of the Universe and episode 5 of the TV series. Ford Prefect apparently believes that "the man has no shame.
The fourth editor of the Guide, who never actually resigned from his job. He simply left one morning for lunch and never returned to his office, making all later holders of the position "Acting Editors.
His desk sports a sign that reads "Missing, presumed fed. Lintilla is a rather unfortunate woman who has as of Fit the Eleventh of the radio series been cloned ,,, times due to an accident at a Brantisvogan escort agency. While creating six clones of a wonderfully talented and attractive woman named Lintilla at the same time another machine was creating five hundred lonely business executives, in order to keep the laws of supply and demand operating profitably , the machine got stuck in a loop and malfunctioned in such a way that it got halfway through completing each new Lintilla before it had finished the previous one.
This meant that it was for a very long while impossible to turn the machine off without committing murder, despite lawyers' best efforts to argue about what murder actually was, including trying to redefine it, repronounce it, and respell it in the hope that no one would notice. Arthur Dent encounters three of her on the planet of Brontitall , and takes a liking to at least one of them. He kills one of three male anti-clones, all called Allitnil Lintilla backwards , sent by the cloning company to get her to "agree to cease to be" although the other two of her "consummate" this legal agreement with their respective anti-clones.
When Arthur leaves Zaphod, Ford, and Zarniwoop stranded with the Ruler of the Universe and his cat at the conclusion of Fit the Twelfth of the radio series , he takes one of the Lintillas with him aboard the Heart of Gold. All Lintillas were played by the same actress: Rula Lenska. Lintilla and her clones appeared only in the final three episodes of the second radio series.
Rula Lenska did return to the fourth and fifth radio series — she was first an uncredited "Update Voice" for the Hitchhiker's Guide itself and then played the Voice of the Bird the new version of the Guide introduced in the novel Mostly Harmless.
Zaphod noted in the new series that the new Guide has the same voice as "those Lintilla chicks. Lintilla and her clones of which at the end there are now more than ,,, — " thousand million " do make a re-appearance of sorts on the Heart of Gold in an alternate ending to Fit the Twenty-Sixth of the radio series which can only be heard on CD.
The name Lintilla was reused for an adult-oriented multiple worlds talker that opened in The scripts for the radio series make it clear that The Three Lintillas are "NOT an Italian High Wire Act, though I'm sure we don't actually need to mention this fact, only perhaps, well I don't know put it in anyway" script for Fit the Twelfth of the radio series.
The Lord is a cat, owned by The Ruler of the Universe. He might like fish and might like people singing songs to him, as the Ruler of the Universe isn't certain if people come to talk to him, or sing songs to his cat or even if the cat exists at all.
A man who never married. Had he done so, and forgotten his wife's birthday for the second year, he would have globbered. Life, the Universe and Everything. Lunkwill and Fook are the two programmers chosen to make the great question to Deep Thought on the day of the Great On-Turning.
On radio, the characters are just called First computer programmer and Second computer programmer , and appear in Fit the Fourth of the radio series, and are played by Ray Hassett and Jeremy Browne respectively.
Appears wandering along a beach in the novel Life, the Universe and Everything , but no one needs him. Majikthise and Vroomfondel may or may not be philosophers. When the supercomputer Deep Thought is being programmed to determine the Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe and Everything, they declare a demarcation dispute since the search for ultimate truth is the "inalienable prerogative of your professional working thinkers".
They insist on rigidly defined areas of doubt and uncertainty, and demand Deep Thought be switched off immediately. They are disarmed when Deep Thought, already committed to its seven and a half million years' calculation, suggests that a great deal of money can be made by philosophers willing to exploit the expected media interest. It is later apparent that their distant descendants revere them as "the greatest and most truly interesting pundits the universe has ever known. The characters were omitted from the movie The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.
His feelings about the Universe outside of his onstage persona are unclear, but he has witnessed its end over five hundred times. His name is derived from a phenomenon during a rocket's ascent. On radio, Roy Hudd played him.
On television, it was Colin Jeavons. He re-appears in the final episode of the radio series The Quintessential Phase , played by Roy Hudd again. Apparently, she declined, surprisingly for reasons of taste, to deliver her child on the air. Murray Bost Henson is "a journalist from one of those papers with small pages and big print" as Arthur Dent puts it. He is a friend of Arthur's whom Arthur phones one day to find out how he can get in touch with Wonko the Sane , and uses incredibly odd idioms in conversation, including such phrases as "my old silver tureen", "my old elephant tusk" and "my old prosthetic limb" as terms of endearment and "the Great Golden Spike in the sky" referring to the death-place of old newspaper stories.
Played by Saeed Jaffrey in Fit the Twenty-Fourth of the radio series the old man on the poles on Hawalius , tells Arthur some old information wrapped up as news, and that everyone should have a beach house. The character appears in the novel Mostly Harmless.
Old Thrashbarg first appears in the novel Mostly Harmless , as a sort of priest on Lamuella , the planet on which Arthur becomes the Sandwich-Maker. He worships "Bob" and is often ignored by his villagers.
Whenever he is questioned about Almighty Bob he merely describes him as "ineffable. Someone who sneaked into his house while he was out having a swim found that " ineffable " was defined in the dictionary as "unknowable, indescribable, unutterable, not to be known or spoken about".
Played by Miriam Margolyes in Fit the Twenty-Fourth of the radio series, the smelly Old Woman in the Cave in the village of oracles on Hawalius provides Arthur Dent with bad olfactory stimulation and a photocopied story of her life, suggesting he live his life the opposite way so he won't end up living in a rancid cave. This occurs in the novel Mostly Harmless. Oolon Colluphid is the author of several books on religious and other philosophical topics.
Colluphid's works include:. Colluphid is also shown as the author of the book The Origins of the Universe in the first part of the Destiny of the Daleks serial of Doctor Who. The Doctor scoffs that he "got it wrong on the first line". The reference was inserted by Douglas Adams, who was at the time working as the show's script editor. Paul Neil Milne Johnstone of Redbridge , Essex, was the writer, according to Adams, of the worst poetry in the universe.
He appeared under that name in the original radio series and the first printings of the novelization Pan Books, paperback, page At the school, Johnstone edited Broadsheet , "the Artsphere Magazine" that included mock reviews by Adams as well as Johnstone's own poetry.
Johnstone achieved moderate prominence in the poetry world as an editor and festival organiser, including the Cambridge Poetry Festival. After he requested the removal of his name and address,  Johnstone was replaced with "Paula Nancy Millstone Jennings of Greenbridge, Essex" a garbled form of his name.
On the ORA vinyl record release, his name has been made indecipherable by cutting up that part of the mastertape and reassembling it in the wrong order. In the TV adaptation of the series, a portrait of Jennings was Adams with pigtails.
The real Johnstone lived at Beehive Court in Redbridge. In the first novel, Phouchg and Loonquawl received Deep Thought's answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything on the day of the answer, seven and a half million years 75, generations after Deep Thought had been asked the question. They were chosen at birth for this task. The name "Phouchg" may be a bastardization of the word Fuck , as his predecessor's name is Fook.
Poodoo is a representative of the cloning company responsible for all the Lintilla clones. He arrives on Brontitall with Varntvar The Priest on a mission to 'revoke' the three Lintillas there by marrying them to their anti-clones, each of which is named Allitnil. The marriage certificates are actually legally binding forms that make the signers agree to terminate their existence, and the unctuous Poodoo may therefore be a lawyer of some sort.
After two of the newly married couples disappear in unsmoke, Arthur shoots the third Allitnil dead and, after tying up Poodoo and Varntvar, forces them to listen to a recording of Marvin's autobiography, so as he says, "It's all over for them. Poodoo only appears in Fit the Twelfth of the radio series, in which he is played by Ken Campbell.
In the epilogue of the novel Life, the Universe and Everything , a journalist with the Siderial Daily Mentioner tells of Prak and then collapses into a coma. Prak was a witness in a trial on Argabuthon where the Dwellers in the Forest were suing the Princes of the Plains and the Tribesmen of the Cold Hillsides. Prak was a messenger for Dwellers in the Forest sent to the other two parties to ask "the reason for this intolerable behaviour. The white robots of Krikkit broke into the court room to steal the Argabuthon Sceptre of Justice, as it was part of the Wikkit Gate Key.
In so doing they may have jogged a surgeon's arm, while the surgeon was injecting Prak with truth serum , resulting in too high a dose. When the trial resumed, Prak was instructed to tell "the Truth, the Whole Truth, and Nothing but the Truth," which he did, in its entirety.
People at the scene had to flee or risk insanity as Prak told every single bit of the entire truth of the entire universe and all of its history, much of which they found ghastly. Prak recalled that many of the weird bits involved frogs or Arthur Dent. As a result, when Arthur Dent came to visit him in search of the truth, he nearly died laughing.
He never did write down anything he discovered while telling the truth, first because he could not find a pencil and then because he could not be bothered. He has therefore forgotten almost all of it, but did recall the address of God's Last Message to His Creation, which he gave to Arthur when the laughter subsided.
He died afterwards, not having recovered from his laughing fit. On radio he appears in Fit the Eighteenth of the radio series and is voiced by Chris Langham , who had played Arthur Dent in the very first stage adaptation of the scripts of the first radio series, in Pralite monks are an order that undergo extreme mental training before taking their final vows to be locked in small metal boxes for the rest of their lives; consequently, the galaxy is full of ex-Pralite monks who leave the order just before taking their final vows.
Ford visited the ex-Pralite monks to Mind Surf and learned the techniques he used to charm animals on prehistoric Earth long enough for him to kill them for food and clothing. Fictional former president of the US who was publicly known to have had an affair with astrologer Gail Andrews in the novel Mostly Harmless.
One of his presidential orders was the bombing of Damascus or "Damascectomy" the taking out of Damascus , an issue Andrews denied that she counselled him on.
At the time of the novel Mostly Harmless , Hudson had died for unknown reasons. The seer who is showing Arthur the future news in order to demonstrate the sudden lack of need for future tellings quickly changes the channel. Arthur says that he knows her referring to Trillian and tells the seer to turn the channel back.
The seer, thinking that Arthur was referring to the princess, replies "Look mate, if I had to stand here saying hello to everyone who came by who knew Princess Hooli, I'd need a new set of lungs!
Prosser is a nervous fat and shabby married year-old road builder who would like to build a bypass right through Arthur Dent's house. He is unaware that he is a direct but very distant descendant of Genghis Khan which causes him to have occasional visions of Mongol hordes and a preference for fur hats and axes above the door. He unfailingly addresses Arthur as "Mr Dent.
After some negotiation with Ford Prefect or with Arthur Dent in the radio series , he is temporarily persuaded to halt the demolition. This respite does not last because the Vogon demolish Earth. Prosser holds the distinction of having the very first line of dialogue ever in the Hitchhiker's Guide canon, as he is the first character not counting The Guide itself to speak in Fit the First of the radio series. On radio, he was played by Bill Wallis and appears in Fit the First of the radio series.
On television, he appears in episode 1 of the TV series , played by Joe Melia. He is played by Steve Pemberton in the movie version. He appears in Fit the Twenty-Sixth of the radio series, despite not appearing in the novel Mostly Harmless , voiced by Bruce Hyman ; this Prosser exists on a parallel Earth where the cottage he wishes to demolish is the home of both Arthur Dent and Fenchurch.
When not shouting at or executing members of his own crew for insubordination, Jeltz enjoys torturing hitchhikers on board his ship by reading his poetry at them, then having them thrown out of an airlock into open space.
Physically, Jeltz is described as being unpleasant to look at, even for other Vogons. Given that Ford Prefect describes Vogons as having "as much sex appeal as a road accident", one can only imagine how much worse Jeltz must appear. This may explain his disposition. Halfrunt had been acting on behalf of a consortium of psychiatrists and the Imperial Galactic Government in order to prevent the discovery of the Ultimate Question.
When Halfrunt learns that Arthur Dent escaped the planet's destruction, Jeltz is dispatched to track him down and destroy him. Jeltz is unable to complete this task, due to the intervention of Zaphod Beeblebrox the Fourth , Zaphod's great-grandfather.
In the novel Mostly Harmless , Jeltz is once again responsible for the destruction of the Earth, this time presumably killing Arthur, Ford, Trillian , and Arthur's daughter, Random.
It is also revealed that he has a son called Constant Mown and that his space ship is called the Business End. Appears in:. In the first radio series, he was played by Bill Wallis. On television, it was Martin Benson. In the third, fourth and fifth radio series, he was played by Toby Longworth , although Longworth did not receive a credit for the role during the third series.
In the film, he is voiced by Richard Griffiths. Prostetnic is a play on the word prosthetic in regard to special effects make-up. Adams was known to have a very low opinion of monsters describing them as "cod" meaning fake looking during his tenure as a Dr Who writer. Questular Rontok is the Vice President of the Galaxy. This character did not appear in the radio or television series or any of the novels, being introduced in the film. Rontok is desperately in love with Zaphod Beeblebrox , the fugitive President of the Galaxy, and he knows it, as she unsuccessfully tries to hide it.
Throughout the movie The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy , Questular alternately tries to arrest Zaphod for stealing the Heart of Gold even enlisting the help of the Vogons , protects his life when endangered by Vogon blaster fire , and at one point beseeches him to just give the stolen spaceship up.
Questular appears to be the "doer", performing all the real functions of the Presidency, whilst Zaphod enjoys his status as the figurehead President. After Trillian interrogates Zaphod by repeatedly zapping him with the Point-of-view gun and he learns that she is truly in love with Arthur Dent and not him, he and Questular end up together at the end of the film, Zaphod telling her "Let's trip the light fantastic , babe. She's skinny, and she's pretty, and she's lying! In the early drafts of the film the character was male, and therefore somewhat different.
In the movie, she is played by Anna Chancellor. In the novel So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish , Arthur Dent and Fenchurch attempt to get to know each other in an especially grim public house near Taunton railway station , their conversation is somewhat thwarted by a woman selling raffle tickets "for Anjie who's retiring".
The numbers on both the front and back of the cloakroom ticket prove highly relevant to the protagonist. Originally prophesied by her father, Arthur Dent, after he hears a Vogon for the first time "I wish I had a daughter so I could forbid her to marry one. The line is followed up in the novel Mostly Harmless and the radio series The Quintessential Phase , the radio series adaptation of this book. The new Poe -reminiscent black bird version of the Guide manipulates her as it has the Grebulons and Ford Prefect , so she is indirectly responsible for the destruction of all possible Earths.
Early in the novel Mostly Harmless , Arthur travels from planet to planet by donating to "DNA banks", finding that when he makes these deposits, he can travel first class. Trillian, wishing to have a child, finds some of his sperm in a DNA bank which was very easy, since he was the only donor of the same species and uses it to conceive Random.
Shortly before the events of the novel And Another Thing In her dream she is Galactic President and highly successful having been rescued from Earth by a suspiciously girlish troop of unicorns and marries a flaybooz a large, guinea-pig-like creature named Fertle to annoy her mother.
When the Guide' s batteries run out, she is released from her dream with all the other main characters. The events of the book then occur. Strangely, she seems affected by her dream sequence and often laments the loss of her position and her 'husband'. And, make no mistake about it, the Stones sound better as a band than they have in years: there's an ease and assurance to their performances that are a joy to hear, whether they're settling into a soulful groove or rocking harder than any group of year-olds should.
But A Bigger Bang doesn't succeed simply because the Stones are great musicians, it also works because this is a strong set of Jagger - Richards originals -- naturally, the songs don't rival their standards from the '60s and '70s, but the best songs here more than hold their own with the best of their post- Exile work, and there are more good songs here than on any Stones album since Some Girls.
This may not be a startling comeback along the lines of Bob Dylan 's Love and Theft , but that's fine, because over the last three decades the Stones haven't been about surprises: they've been about reliability.
The problem is, they haven't always lived up to their promises, or when they did deliver the goods, it was sporadic and unpredictable. And that's what's unexpected about A Bigger Bang : they finally hold up their end of the bargain, delivering a strong, engaging, cohesive Rolling Stones album that finds everybody in prime form. Keith is loose and limber, Charlie is tight and controlled, Ronnie lays down some thrilling, greasy slide guitar, and Mick is having a grand time, making dirty jokes, baiting neo-cons, and sounding more committed to the Stones than he has in years.
Best of all, this is a record where the band acknowledges its age and doesn't make a big deal about it: they're not in denial, trying to act like a younger band, they've simply accepted what they do best and go about doing it as if it's no big deal. But that's what makes A Bigger Bang a big deal: it's the Stones back in fighting form for the first time in years, and they have both the strength and the stamina to make the excellent latter-day effort everybody's been waiting for all these years.
