Dirk Gently, Netflix, Elijah Wood, Samuel Barnett

In case you haven’t caught it yet, there’s a new version of Douglas Adams’s Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency just started on Netflix.

BBC4 did a version starring Stephen Mangan back in 2010. It was OK and ran for two series. Crime-comedy rarely works well, but this new US update looks like it has plenty of energy…
