Margaret Atwood is hot property right now and the recent adaptation of The Handmaid’s Tale really couldn’t have been more well-received by viewers.

The Hexagonal Phase is arriving in 2018 on BBC Radio 4 for the 40th anniversary of the popular book/radio play/film/television series. The radio play is based on And Another Thing... by Eoin Colfer, with additional material by Douglas Adams, and adapted and directed by Dirk Maggs.
And Another Thing… was commissioned in 2009 by the Douglas Adams Estate to mark the 30th anniversary of the first novel. It is set to include unpublished material by Douglas Adams, sourced from notebooks full of Hitchiker’s notes that have been kept safe in the library at St. John’s College, Cambridge.

Early reviews are positive, and positive enough for Amazon and Virgin Media to put their money where their proverbial mouths are, putting into production a 10-part drama set in London.
