Douglas Noel Adams

1952 - 2001

Douglas Adams died suddenly following a heart attack on the 11th May, 2001.

The Digital Village as a registered company has ceased to exist. However, as a group of people who loved and worked with Douglas Adams, The Digital Village will continue for a long time. No-one from TDV can really accept or believe what has happened yet. Douglas just seemed like he would go on forever. Our thoughts are with Douglas' family and friends.

I remember back to 1980 when I and quite a few of my peers, received the same hand written message,

"Mike's folks are gone for the whole week and Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy is being played Saturday night

so, we're throwing a party!! It's going to be a GOOD ONE!!"

I was 16 and about to be introduced to the brilliance of Douglas Adams.

What a night indeed!

Fast forward 42 years....I am still taken in, what a brilliant mind!!!

I found this only recently;

Douglas Noel Adams (11 March 1952-11 May 2001) wrote the Doctor Who television stories The Pirate Planet and Shada. He co-wrote City of Death with producer Graham Williams under the pseudonym David Agnew. He was also script editor for Season 17.

Main jobs: Writer, Script editor,script%20editor%20for%20Season%2017.

RIP, Sir Douglas......And of course, 'Thanks For All The Fish!'
