Dirk Gently’s Holistic Agency – The Long Dark Tea-time of the Soul

Tomorrow night (2 October) at 11pm Douglas Adams returns to Radio 4 with Dirk Gently, under the same director that brought The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy back to radio. Starring Harry Enfield as Dirk Gently and William Boyd as Richard McDuff.

What god would be hanging around Heathrow trying to catch the 3:37 to Oslo? And what has this to do with Dirk’s latest–and late– client, found only this morning with his head revolving atop the hit record “Hot Potato”? Amid the hostile attentions of a stray eagle and the trauma of a very dirty refrigerator, super-sleuth Dirk Gently will once again solve the mysteries of the universe…

It can only be Douglas …
