Yeah I think the current Dr Who is dross too, getting back to Hitch Hikers, I 
liked the ideas it had like Earth being destroyed to make way for a Motorway 
we rip through our environment destroying century's of Eco systems without a 
second thought so why shouldn't some other alien species do the same?

Who says mankind rules the earth? maybe it is the mice and we are just subject 

I think the ending is very clever, and way ahead of its time given when it was 
written the fact that the Earth is actually a Super Computer nearly all scifi 
programmes allude to the same idea of a hardware/biological computer I 
understand most of the developers are trying to make a computer that has or 
incorporates a life form for processing.

Bring on the cyborgs!! the answer is 42.
