So long…

As noted previously on the blog, Douglas Adams was writer or co-writer of three Doctor Who stories, and Script Editor for the whole of Season 17.

Although dolphins don’t feature prominently in Doctor Who, they do in another Science Fiction universe: Douglas Adams’s The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.

The Yangtze River/Baiji Dolphin has now been declared extinct.

The flying squid blog discusses Douglas Adams’s 1992 book, Last Chance to See, which mentions the (then) almost-extinct Baiji.
