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.
