Here’s the deal, Douglas Adams’ The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy series ( in its many formats) is as important to me as Star Wars or Ghostbusters.
However, despite trying several times, I could never get into his Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency books.
I think it’s time to try again as Dirk is about to hit our screens once more thanks to BBS America.
Samuel Barnett and Elijah Wood star (pictured above) as Dirk and his sort of sidekick, Todd.
Screenwriter Max Landis says of Dirk: “He believes that everything is connected and just by living his life, wandering from place to place, he will be able to solve any mystery put in front of him.”
And of Todd: “Todd’s an interesting character. He’s honestly not gung-ho about helping Dirk do anything, much less be his assistant.”
We’re always excited to see anything Douglas Adams related on our screens so we’ll be checking out BBC America on October 22nd when the new series debuts.
Now, will someone please look into bringing The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the small screen again, please? Thanks…
