From the Definit-Kil to Dire Straits

By The Outpost

Mark Steadman, Jon Bounds and Danny Smith continue their mission to discuss everything in the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy canon , in alphabetical order. Definit-Kil photrazon cannon A Vogon weapon, and an excuse for us to talk about firing guns and nihilism. Dentrassis The best cooks and _the _best drinks mixers, and they don't give a wet slap about anything else. The team discusses their favourite ways of annoying Vogons. The Digital Village The company that renamed to H2G2, and were in charge of the original H2G2 website before it was stewarded by the BBC. Digital watches A pretty neat idea and a chance for our teams to get some things off their chests. Dine-o-Charge An intergalactic credit card used by Ford Prefect. Dingos' kidneys This piece of profanity used only by Ford Prefect is a good excuse for the team to discuss some mostly-harmless swearwords. Dire Straits A band of which Douglas Adams would appear to be a big fan. Here, Bounder shares a wonderful story from a biography, in which Adams encounters a young Mark Knopfler. Hypothetical Eddie Vote on your favourite actor to play Eddie the shipboard computer, in a hypothetical new Netflix series of the Hitchhiker's Guide.
