Behind the scenes[]

  • The Salmon of Doubt establishes the existence of a multiverse, with many universes that range from entirely foreign to very similar to each other, including the existence of many different Dirk Gentlys. Prominently featured is a universe that strongly resembles (but is not identical to) the 2016 BBC America television series.
  • All three stories are set after the events of The Long Dark Tea-Time of the Soul. Dirk acknowledges previous cases that involved a sofa in a stairwell and an electric monk as well as one with Thor.
    • Despite The Interconnectedness of All Kings being the first story, it takes place after the events of A Spoon Too Short and The Salmon of Doubt.

Notes[]

  • Wiki usage: Characters shared between the IDW comics and Adamsverse or BBCA-verse can and are dealt with in the same article, but should keep the comic canon in a separate section to the rest of the character's article.
