From Paisley to the Vogons

Spotted by the ever-vigilant Emily. If you’re not a fan of Douglas Adams’ The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy (and here) then I don’t want to know you ;p But a movie version of the book of the radio show is (finally) due for release at the end of this month – Yippee!! In the meantime, Time-out has been rummaging through the production notebook.. and has found an intriguing link to our own local scene.. it seems that the inspiration for the design of the, newly-imagined, Vogons in the movie included a somewhat unlikely source – step forward Ian Paisley! – he’s the one just below top-centre BTW. *ducks*
