First Dirk Gently picture released

It started off as a couple of Doctor Who scripts written by Douglas Adams (City of Death, Shada). Then it got heavily altered and became a book (Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency) that got adapted into a radio series.

Now it’s a one-off BBC4 special starring Stephen Mangan, Helen Baxendale and Darren Boyd (don’t forget to listen to him in the third series of Safety Catch co-starring Joanna Page on Radio 4 at 11.30am today) – and here’s the first picture from Dirk Gently’s Holistic Agency (see how it’s now promoted to bold?). I’ll say one thing: they’ve got the hair right.

    Is that Helen Baxendale in the picture? It doesn’t look like her at all. Although I just checked my horoscope and it says “almost everything you do today will be wrong.”

    “Is that Helen Baxendale in the picture? It doesn’t look like her at all. Although I just checked my horoscope and it says “almost everything you do today will be wrong.””
    Yep. That’s her. Kudos on the Gently joke, though.

  • Even I got this BBC email. I’m finally on their radar. Do you think they realize I have to steal their programs to watch them?
