STRETCH YOURSELF:
If you can, make some comparisons to the Hitchhiker to show that you can bring in ideas about more than one text. You could also, BRIEFLY refer to how the TV version of ‘The Landlady’ was different/more effective/less good. Put each point you make in its own paragraph and quote in support of your ideas.
