There is a long tradition of Great Detectives, and Dirk Gently does not belong to it. But his search for a missing cat uncovers a ghost, a time traveler, AND the devastating secret of humankind! Detective Gently`s bill for saving the human race from extinction: NO CHARGE.
BBC Four released a trailer for the upcoming series Dirk Gently, based on two novels by the late Douglas Adams--Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency and The Long Dark Tea-Time of the Soul. Blastr observed that BBC Four "bills the show as a 'drama,' but if it uses any of its source material, it should contain plenty of light British wit, ghosts and the poetry of Samuel Taylor Coleridge. It may even involve the creation of all life on Earth."
