Teaser for Dirk Gently!

The BBC have released a teaser trailer for Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency.  If that title means nothing to you feast your peepers on this.  Dirk Gently is the star of two novels, one matching the above title and the other being Long, Dark, Tea Time of the Soul, written by Douglas Adams.  Adams of course is most famous for the five book Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy trilogy which has had many different versions created for pop culture consumption with the most recent being the Hollywood version staring Martin Freeman of The Office and now The Hobbit.  The Dirk Gently series has never seemed to be quite as popular as Hitchhiker and that’s a shame.  Tea Time is utterly brilliant.  The story is completely mad in the way that only Adams could produce.  I have not finished the first Dirk novel but it is on the list.  This series marks the first entry into television for Dirk and from this 30 second trailer it looks great.
