Dirk Gently is a British television series that aired on the network BBC Four beginning in 2010. It is based on the Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency novel series written by Douglas Adams. The TV series had only four episodes before its cancellation, a pilot in 2010 and three proper episodes beginning in 2012.
The series was created by Howard Overman. It stars Stephen Mangan as holistic detective Dirk Gently, and Darren Boyd as his sidekick Richard MacDuff. Recurring actors include Helen Baxendale as MacDuff's girlfriend Susan Harmison, Jason Watkins as Dirk's nemesis DI Gilks and Lisa Jackson as Dirk's receptionist Janice Pearce. Unlike most detective series Dirk Gently features broadly comic touches and even some science fiction themes such as time travel and artificial intelligence.
