The Trailer for BBC’s sci-fi comedy, Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency

I have to say this looks pretty cool. Especially with Max Landis behind this and Elijah Wood in the Watson-esque role, I will definitely be tuning in. Considering that there was already a Dirk Gently series, this one will have some obstacles, but i am confident they will overcome it. This could be a great companion series to Doctor Who. From BBC America and executive producer Max Landis comes the adventures of… Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency

 

“When young Todd Brotzman is put into a situation where he must help an eccentric, time-traveling “holistic detective” named Dirk Gently, he must put aside all of his fears and intuitions. With the help of Dirk Gently, he will experience amazing adventures, he never thought possible.”
