Based on the cult novel by Douglas Adams (The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy), Stephen Mangan (Green Wing, Episodes) stars as Dirk Gently, the eccentric private detective with a unique take on the world.
Gently believes in the fundamental interconnectedness of all things and applies this philosophy to his investigations into everyday mysteries. This is how a missing cat, hypnotism and a plate of biscuits, can lead Gently to uncover a double murder! Perpetually broke and utterly infuriating, most people suspect Dirk is nothing more than a cheap conman. And they might be right – but nevertheless his methods, though unusual, do often produce surprising results. Helen Baxendale (Cold Feet, Friends), also stars in this intelligent comedy drama series.
