Coming Soon: DIRK GENTLY, series 1

Sunday, 26 February 2012

After a successful pilot in 2010, writer Howard Overman (Misfits) returns with his crime mystery drama based on Douglas Adams' holistic detective character Dirk Gently. The new three-part series again stars Stephen Mangan (Episodes) as Dirk, joined by Darren Boyd, Helen Baxendale, Jason Watkins (Being Human) and Lisa Jackson.

The first episode is written by Overman and directed by Tom Shankland (The Fades), the second is written by Matt Jones (Doctor Who, Torchwood), and the third by Jamie Mathieson (Being Human).

Dirk Gently returns to BBC4 on 5 March at 9pm, with a story about a man who believes the Pentagon are trying to kill him, and another who thinks their horoscope is coming true...

Will you be watching? Is there anything you hope has been changed about the pilot, which I reviewed here?
