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'.
By the end of the book, Arthur proposes to go with her to find a good university for her to attend. Tricia interprets the message "Not happy," as meaning Gail Andrews wasn't happy with their interview.
Appearing in the novel The Restaurant at the End of the Universe and Fit the Seventh of the radio series the large, pink-winged, insectoid receptionist in the Megadodo offices points Zaphod using a petulant tentacle towards Zarniwoop's office, the one with a whole electronic universe in it, and is also bugged by Marvin who just wants someone to talk to.
In the radio series The Quintessential Phase , he directs Zaphod towards Zarniwoop's new office, having put on the old hippy act.
Reg Nullify leads the "Cataclysmic Combo" band at Milliways. The role was played by Graham de Wilde. Described by the scientific community in the novel So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish as a "Quasi Supernormal Incremental Precipitation Inducer," Rob McKenna is an ordinary lorry driver who can never get away from rain and he has a log-book showing that it has rained on him every day, anywhere that he has ever been, to prove it.
Arthur suggests that he could show the diary to someone, which Rob does, making the media deem him a 'Rain God' something which he actually is for the clouds want "to be near him, to love him, to cherish him and to water him".
This windfall gives him a lucrative career, taking money from resorts and similar places in exchange for not going there.
Rob McKenna is, in So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish , a "miserable bastard and he knew it because he'd had a lot of people point it out to him But McKenna is mentioned throughout the book, especially when he is hailed by the media as a "Rain God," though not in those terms.
In the radio show, however, he picks Arthur up instead of ignoring him, and meets him again later, after he acquired his fame.
He then has a much more positive attitude towards Life, the Universe, and Everything, and is thrilled to meet Arthur again. He explains, as the narrator does in the book, that "Quasi Supernormal Incremental Precipitation Inducer" means, in layman's terms, a Rain God, but the media couldn't call him simply that, because it would suggest that the ordinary people knew something they didn't.
He appears in Fit the Nineteenth of the radio series, Fit the Twentieth of the radio series and Fit the Twenty-First of the radio series and is played by Bill Paterson , who also played one of the Arcturan Megafreighter crew in Fit the Seventh of the radio series.
Rob McKenna is assumed to be English because that is where he is always driving round, trying to escape the elements, and where, thanks to the summer resorts who've heard of him, he will be confined until his death in the Quintissential Phase; but in the Quandary Phase, he has a Scottish-sounding voice.
Roosta is a hitchhiker and researcher for the Guide , whom Ford Prefect knows at least in passing and holds in some regard Ford describes him as "a frood who really knows where his towel is".
He carries a special towel infused with nutrients, wheat germ , barbecue sauce , and antidepressants , which can be obtained by sucking on different areas.
The last two of these, he explains, are for use when the taste of the first two sickens or depresses him. He saves Zaphod Beeblebrox from a horrible death in the offices of the Guide by taking him into the artificial universe in Zarniwoop's office , and is then kidnapped along with Zaphod and the left-hand tower of the Guide building by a squadron of Frogstar Fighters.
In the radio series, he serves no other purpose than to provide conversation and deliver the line "here Zaphod, suck this!
However, in the books, he instructs Zaphod to leave the office through the window instead of the door after the building lands.
In the novel The Restaurant at the End of the Universe , Roosta is a much more officious, standoffish and antagonistic character than he appears in the radio series.
On radio, he was voiced by Alan Ford. The Ruler of the Universe is a man living in a small shack on a world that can only be reached with a key to an improbability field or use of an Infinite Improbability Drive.
He does not want to rule the universe and tries not to whenever possible, and therefore is the ideal candidate for the job.
He has an odd, solipsistic view of reality: he lives alone with his cat, which he has named 'The Lord' even though he is not certain of its existence.
He has a very dim view of the past, and he only believes in what he senses with his eyes and ears and doesn't seem too certain of that, either : anything else is hearsay , so when executive-types visit to ask him what he thinks about certain matters, such as wars and the like, he tells them how he feels without considering consequences.
As part of his refusal to accept that anything is true, or simply as another oddity, "He talked to his table for a week to see how it would react.
In the radio adaptation of the novel Mostly Harmless , Ford also meets Zaphod in the accounting department of the new Guide offices.
Zaphod describes being bored by a man in a shack and his cat for over a year. He was voiced on radio by Stephen Moore in the original Radio Times listing  he was announced as being played by Ron Hate — an anagram of "A.
Other" or possibly "No Earth" — because the show was so far behind schedule that the role had not been cast when the magazine went to print.
Russell is Fenchurch's burly, blonde-moustached, blow-dried brother. Arthur and Russell take an instant dislike to each other.
Fenchurch also doesn't like Russell — he calls her "Fenny" which she dislikes intensely. He also tries to simplify her problems so he can explain and understand them better for example, he tells Arthur that Fenchurch believes herself to be a hedgehog.
He first appeared in the novel So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish , and when this was adapted to radio appears in Fit the Nineteenth of the radio series, where he is played by Rupert Degas.
He is accompanied by two Officials from the Safety and Civil Reassurance Administration and an empty spacesuit, as they search for aorist rods and a Sirius Cybernetics Corporation Designer Person babbling gently about a shining city on a hill who it turns out has escaped to Earth.
Adams wrote this segment specifically for Steafel's show, and Simon Jones appeared in character as Arthur Dent. Steafel can be regarded as a canonical Hitchhiker's character.
Shooty and Bang Bang are Blagulon galactic policemen. They pursue Zaphod Beeblebrox to the planet of Magrathea, whereupon they proceed to shoot at him.
In the radio and television series this results in a hyperspatial field generator exploding and throwing Arthur Dent, Ford Prefect and Zaphod forwards in time to the Restaurant at the End of the Universe.
In the books, Arthur, Ford and Zaphod are saved from certain death when Marvin talks to the cops' spaceship, which subsequently becomes so depressed it commits suicide, disabling the cops' life support units and rendering them unable to breathe as they were described as being "methane breathers.
Shooty writes novels in crayon , and Bang Bang agonizes for hours to his girlfriend about gratuitously shooting everything in sight.
Shooty was played on radio by Jim Broadbent and on television by Matt Zimmerman. The characters are never named in dialogue or in the novels, but are named in the original radio series scripts.
In their six starships, the Six Men are the only people who have, as far as anyone is aware, the key to the improbability field that locks away The Ruler of the Universe.
Slartibartfast is a Magrathean , and a designer of planets. A sperm whale called suddenly and instantly into existence by the Heart of Gold ' s improbability drive, above the planet Magrathea alongside Agrajag as a bowl of petunias , in place of two thermonuclear missiles that were targeting the ship prior.
The whale has an existential life of discovery which lasts a minute before it hits the ground, leaving a large crater and whale remains.
Stavro opens a second club in the novel Mostly Harmless called Club Beta, which is where Arthur Dent narrowly escapes death from a blaster shot by his daughter Random Dent and the shot hits Agrajag who proclaims that Arthur keeps killing him in Life, the Universe and Everything.
We are told that he was a Greek with a German father and has handed Club Alpha over to his brother Karl Mueller so Stavro can open a new club in London.
In the radio series The Quintessential Phase Stavro is an only child. Appears in the novel The Restaurant at the End of the Universe.
Thor , a figure from Norse mythology , appears at Milliways , and is mentioned in Fit the Fifth of the radio series, episode 5 of the TV series , and the novel The Restaurant at the End of the Universe.
He next appears in the novel Life, the Universe and Everything , at a party, where he is chatting up Trillian. Arthur tricks him into stepping out of the flying building by challenging him to a fight.
In the radio adaptation of this he appears in Fit the Sixteenth of the radio series, where he is played by Dominic Hawksley. Hawksley reprises the role in the radio adaptation of the novel Mostly Harmless , the radio series The Quintessential Phase , despite not appearing in that book.
Two other characters from the Restaurant — Max Quordlepleen and Zarquon — also appear. Thor is a major character in the novel And Another Thing These tribesmen fought with in the epilogue of the novel Life, the Universe and Everything the Princes of the Plains in the land of the Dwellers in the Forest, to the detriment of the latter, for a really good reason, but Prak cannot remember why.
Trin Tragula was a speculative philosopher who invented the Total Perspective Vortex basically in order to annoy his wife.
His wife thought he was an idiot who needed to "have some sense of proportion", exhorting her view frequently. When he attached his wife to the Total Perspective Vortex, the shock of seeing herself in relation to the rest of the universe instantly annihilated her brain.
Although he was horrified by this, Trin Tragula found some satisfaction in discovering that the one thing that a person cannot afford to have in a universe this size is a sense of proportion.
He has only four lines in the programme, accompanying Poodoo and the Allitnils in the conspiracy to destroy Lintilla 's clones.
Varntvar is eventually forced to listen to a tape of Marvin's autobiography. Veet Voojagig is described as "a quiet, young student at the University of Maximegalon", who initially studied ancient philology , transformational ethics and the Wave Harmonic Theory of Historical Perception.
Then, after drinking some Pan Galactic Gargle Blasters with Zaphod Beeblebrox , he became obsessed with the problem of what happens to all the biros he'd bought over the years which had somehow disappeared.
Voojagig claimed to have discovered the solution that they disappear to a world of their own, and claimed further to have worked on that world, working for a family of cheap green retractables.
The character was described as ending up in " tax exile " — and may have had a hand in "Zaphod Beeblebrox's highly profitable second-hand [pen] business.
They just seem to get a little tired and a little grim In the novel Life, the Universe and Everything. Owner of a grey Porsche S which Rob McKenna has been blocking for 20 miles with a sticker that reads "My other car is also a Porsche", Will soaks Arthur Dent and fails to give him a lift when he is hitchhiking back on Earth at the beginning of the novel So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish.
He does not like saying the word "shoe", as he and the bird people consider it unspeakable. The Bird People live in the right ear of a fifteen-mile-high statue of Arthur Dent, constructed by their ancestors.
The "wise old bird" is a phrase which features in the nursery rhyme A Wise Old Owl. He was voiced by John Le Mesurier who was originally intended to play the character of Slartibartfast.
Werdle Sneng , in Fit the Eighth of the radio series, has a book out, Bath Sheets in Space which is found adorning contemporary hot beverage tables, as it is far too large for anyone's pocket, fashionable or otherwise.
John Watson aka Wonko the Sane lives in coastal California with his wife, Arcane Jill Watson, in a house called The Outside of the Asylum which features interior features on its outside and exterior on its inside.
When Wonko saw instructions on how to use a toothpick on a packet of toothpicks ,  he became convinced that the world had gone crazy and so built the house as an asylum for it, hence the reversal of the interior and exterior.
Arthur and Fenchurch pay Wonko a visit and learn that like both of them, he had also received a fishbowl from the dolphins having been a marine biologist and close to them.
He also claims to have seen angels with golden beards, green wings and Dr Scholl sandals, who drive little scooters, do a lot of coke and are very wonderful about a whole range of things.
In the radio series, he is played by Christian Slater. In contrast to most other immortals, Bowerick Wowbagger was not born one, but became immortal due to an accident with "an irrational particle accelerator, a liquid lunch, and a pair of rubber bands", an event which no-one has been able to replicate without ending up looking rather silly or dead or both.
Unlike other immortals, whom he calls "a load of serene bastards", he doesn't cope very well with his infinite life, having not been born into it and thus lacking the innate ability to handle it.
Finding something to do on Sunday afternoons causes him particular difficulties. Eventually he comes up with a plan to keep himself busy: he will insult every single living being in the universe — in alphabetical order.
He appears in the novel Life, the Universe and Everything , while insulting Arthur Dent with the phrase, "You're a jerk, a complete arsehole" in the US changed to " Later, after Arthur escapes prehistoric Earth, Wowbagger shows up again in the present, but when he sees Arthur he says, "I've done you before, haven't I?
Wowbagger makes a return in the novel And Another Thing Wowbagger is also present in " The Private Life of Genghis Khan ",  where he insults Genghis Khan , so that he "stormed into Europe in such a rage that he almost forgot to burn down Asia before he left.
In the new radio series, he is voiced by Toby Longworth. In the radio series The Quintessential Phase , he finally reaches the end of his quest by insulting the Great Prophet Zarquon , who revokes Wowbagger's immortality.
Yooden Vranx is the late former President of the Galaxy, the direct predecessor to Zaphod Beeblebrox.
Just before his death, Yooden came to see Zaphod and presented his idea to steal the Heart of Gold.
Following Yooden's suggestion, Zaphod locked out a section in each of his own brains so that no one could figure out why he ran for the presidency.
Zaphod and Ford Prefect 's first encounter with Yooden occurred when they were children on Betelgeuse and Yooden was a ship's captain.
Zaphod had bet Ford that he could raid a heavily fortified Arcturan megafreighter and took Ford along for the attempt, using a souped-up trijet scooter.
They successfully boarded the ship captained by Yooden , stormed the bridge with toy pistols, and demanded conkers. Yooden gave them conkers, food, booze, and various other items before teleporting them to the maximum-security wing of the Betelgeuse state prison.
This was due to an "accident with a contraceptive and a time machine". The great-grandfather of Zaphod Beeblebrox , Zaphod Beeblebrox the Fourth is one of two active characters in books who are dead see also: Hotblack Desiato.
Zaphod the Fourth berates his great-grandchild for being generally self-absorbed and learns of the ship's imminent destruction.
He stops time so he can continue deriding Zaphod, who tries rather weakly to defend his life. Zaphod the Fourth saves the ship and crew to keep his great-grandchild and his "modern friends" from joining him in the afterlife and thereby ruining the experience.
When he learns that the ship had seized up to solve the dilemma of either making tea in the novel The Restaurant at the End of the Universe or figuring out why Arthur would want dried leaves in water Fit the Ninth of the radio series , he solves these problems before leaving by either leaving a pot of tea in the Nutri-Matic Drink Synthesizer or by explaining to Eddie that "he's an ignorant monkey who doesn't know better", respectively.
In the book Z. As a final note, Zaphod explains that his great-grandfather is "the Fourth" due to an accident with a contraceptive and a time machine.
Zaphod the Fourth, therefore, bitterly refers to his great-grandson as "Zaphod Beeblebrox the Nothingth" Zaphod tries to counter this by referring to himself as "the First".
Zarniwoop works in the offices of the Guide, on Ursa Minor Beta. When Zaphod travels to Ursa Minor Beta to meet him, he is informed that Zarniwoop is unavailable and too cool to see him right now.
He is in his office, but he's on an intergalactic cruise. Zaphod subsequently discovers that Zarniwoop's intergalactic cruise ship has spent years on Brontitall in Fit the Eleventh of the radio series , or Frogstar B in the novel The Restaurant at the End of the Universe , waiting for a complement of small lemon-soaked paper napkins, and every single passenger has aged considerably despite enforced hibernation.
Only one person, who was not a passenger, but who hid himself on the spaceship, has not aged — Zarniwoop. Zaphod subsequently learns that, before he sealed part of his own brain, he was collaborating with Zarniwoop to find out who rules the universe — this being Zarniwoop's obsession.
At the end of the second radio series, he is similarly marooned, but this time by Arthur, with Ford Prefect and Zaphod Beeblebrox for company.
In the Quintessential Phase radio series, Zarniwoop is revealed to be the same person as the novel Mostly Harmless character Vann Harl Zarniwoop is his first name , and a Vogon in disguise.
He has escaped being left on the desolate planet and is masterminding the Guide's new all-powerful format. His casting was accidental — he had been hired to play a different role The Ruler of the Universe , whose lines had apparently not been written in time.
He was happy to return for the final series, however, when a lot more was revealed about the character, much of it appropriately sinister, Pryce now having become well known for playing villains.
