References to The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy Edit
There are many references to The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy in the series.
- The number 42 appears on the wall of screens in the death maze.
- In the first episode, Dirk mentions “there was a bit about a sofa, a thing with Thor…” This is referring to ‘Life, the Universe and Everything’, where Ford Prefect and Arthur Dent end up on Lord's Cricket Ground via a Chesterfield Sofa. Later in the book, they attend a never-ending party and meet Thor.
- The henchmen coming out of mice is a reference to the Pan-dimensional beings behind the creation of Deep Thought (and the answer 42), who put themselves into the bodies of mice to keep an eye on the Earth.
- The projects have been loose for about 15 years, almost sixteen by the time the show begins; about the same amount of time Ford Prefect was stranded on Earth at the beginning of the first Hitchhiker's book.
- There are five members of the Rowdy Three gang (when counting the original four men and Amanda Brotzman), a reference to the five books in the Hitchhiker's Trilogy.
