You do know one of the hitchhiker novels (the third) was originally written as a film script for a Dr Who movie? And that Douglas Adams was employed as a script editor for Dr Who? It was also thanks to Dr Who (to whom he sent the original Hitchhikers script) that he got his first writing break with the BBC.

He also wrote 14 episodes of the show.

In effect without Dr Who there may well have never been any Hitchikers.

Not sure what the big deal is

Why can't a fictional alien character be played by a female?

Exactly, if that alien identifies as a human woman, then they are a human woman. Its 2018.

True, but it would be infinitely better if it identified as a decent script and storyline.

The fume from some bedwetters when she was announced was very entertaining. People were happy to accept that a 900 year old alien with two hearts could travel through time in a box that’s bigger on the inside, but a woman? Nah, that was stretching it too far

+1 Bas clearly doesn't know his history. Maybe he should review his confidence and supply agreement with his memory!
