Book review: The Frood by Jem Roberts

It is a shock to realise Douglas Adams would be barely into his sixties if he were alive even now. This is a fitting tribute to a giant of comic literature, taken from us far too early.

Mysterious new Dr Who picture includes H2G2 reference

The picture features three small Tardis-blue glass bottles, one of which has a label described in the post as "*almost* too small to read" - but we've managed, and it's a pretty interesting inscription.

It says: "Answer to the question of life, the universe and everything in the galaxy," accompanied by strange (and possibly Gallifreyan) symbols as well as the words "Part 10". But what could it all mean?
