News that Steven Spielberg plans to revamp Dr Who into a multi-million-pound television series stuffed with special effects will not be lost on Douglas Adams, creator of The Hitch-Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

Adams has just left for America to discuss plans for a Hollywood movie of his tale, whose unlikely star, a bewildered Englishman in his dressing gown, is swept up into a cosmic galaxy of equally improbable events. Adams's partner in the venture also has a high improbability factor — Michael Nesmith, formerly a guitarist with The Monkees, who has turned his hand to movies. "They're having talks and are starting to come together with a script," says a spokesman for Adams. Spielberg should be the next port of call.
