Well here it is… the first trailer for the BBC America adaptation of Douglas Adams’ Dirk Gently character.

Not to be confused with the BBC UK version which starred Stephen Mangan, this one stars Samuel Barnett as Gently and Elijah Woods as Tod, his sidekick.
Showrunner Robert Cooper said at San Diego Comic-Con: “It’s a combination of Supernatural, Sherlock, and Doctor Who… we’re like, Super-Sher-Who.”

Sounds good to us but can it deliver? We’ll all know in October when it airs on BBC America…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
