Created by Howard Overman (Misfits) and starring Stephen Mangan (Episodes, Green Wing) as Dirk, and Darren Boyd (Spy, Whites) as his put-upon business partner Richard MacDuff, these four stories take in a missing cat, a stolen robot, horoscopes that actually predict the future and a Pentagon plot to destroy the Free World.
And while solving these cases, Dirk must stay one step ahead of MacDuff's sceptical girlfriend Susan (Helen Baxendale--Cold Feet, Friends), harassed Detective Inspector Gilks (Jason Watkins--Trollied) and his own unpaid, unappreciated assistant Janice (Lisa Jackson--Campus), all while escaping the attentions of the Taxman and framing a man for murder.
Based on the much-loved books by Douglas Adams (Hitchhikers Guide to The Galaxy), Dirk Gently is written by Howard Overman, Jamie Mathieson (Being Human) and Matt Jones (Doctor Who, Skins).
Part genius, part conman, mostly tangential, Dirk Gently is a detective like no other.
Includes all three new episodes, plus the pilot episode.

So so effort, the actors try, but the writing makes it come across like jonathan creek. Fans of Douglas Adams will appreciate the effort not applaud it. Read morePublished 6 months ago by M J. Tucker
it's a pity there could not have been more episodes. Dirk irritated my wife endlessly and still managed to make her laugh.Published 8 months ago by B. Perham
This DVD is especially beneficial if you're feeling down in the dumps or unwell. Doctors should be able to prescribe it! I found the pilot episode (the first one) the funniest. Read morePublished 8 months ago by GoldenBroom
