And BBC4's adaptation of Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency is airing on Thursday December 16th. At the moment, it's just a one-off pilot, but if the trailer's anything to go by they seem to have managed to fit in large chunks of the plot of the original novel, if the scrawling on the white board is anything to go by. No mean feat.
In readiness, I've been listening to the Dirk Maggs radio adaptations of the Dirk Gently novels, and on a related note, Big Finish's adaptation of Shada. I'm quite fond of Harry Enfield's Dirk Gently, but I think Stephen Mangan will be interesting in the role. (Terrible though it is, I've not really followed his career in any meaningful sense, but still have fond memories of him as Adrian Mole in the Beeb's The Capuccino Years adaptation.)
