Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency (BBC America 2016, Samuel Barnett, Elijah Wood)

Published

on


Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency is a tour-de-force comedic thriller that follows the bizarre adventures of eccentric ‘holistic’ detective Dirk Gently (a brilliant Samuel Barnett) and his reluctant assistant Todd (Elijah Wood), as they wend their way through one big, seemingly insane mystery a season, crossing unlikely paths with a bevy of wild and sometimes dangerous characters, each episode landing them a few random steps closer to uncovering the truth. The series is an adaptation of Douglas Adams’ (Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, Doctor Who) wildly successful comic novels, Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency, and is set in the unexpected world of the hyper, absurd, eponymous detective Dirk Gently.

Season one was about time travel with body-swapping, and season two involved an injection of fantasy. The vast dangers lurking in the fantasy realm navigate a path to Earth, becoming a threat in reality, and it’s up to Dirk (Barnett) and the gang to stop them in their tracks. But first – they need to find each other… Everything and everyone continues to be connected… from the sterile chambers of the government organization Blackwing, to the sleepy town of Bergsberg and the magical land of Wendimoor. After a few misfires, Dirk Gently steadily finds his footing on the new case to ‘find The Boy’, and with the help of his friends, makes the necessary connections to solve the mystery before it’s too late.

Shame it was cancelled after two seasons.
