Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency (2012)

Dirk Gently is a British comedy detective drama TV series based on characters from the Dirk Gently novels by Douglas Adams. The series was created by Howard Overman and stars Stephen Mangan as holistic detective Dirk Gently and Darren Boyd as his sidekick Richard MacDuff. Recurring actors include Helen Baxendale as MacDuff's girlfriend Susan Harmison, Jason Watkins as Dirk's nemesis DI Gilks and Lisa Jackson as Dirk's receptionist Janice Pearce. Unlike most detective series Dirk Gently features broadly comic touches and even some science fiction themes such as time travel and artificial intelligence.

Dirk Gently operates his Holistic Detective Agency based on the "fundamental interconnectedness of all things", which relies on random chance methods to uncover connections between seemingly-unrelated cases. He claims that he follows the principles of quantum mechanics, although the majority of his clients suspect he may be a conman he often produces surprising results. With the help of his assistant, Richard MacDuff, Dirk investigates a number of seemingly unrelated but interconnected cases.

An hour-long pilot episode loosely based on plot elements from Adams' 1987 novel Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency was broadcast on BBC Four and was watched by 1.1 million viewers. Critical reception was generally positive. A full series of 3 one-hour episodes was subsequently commissioned and was broadcast on BBC Four in 2012. The series was the first continuing drama series produced for the digital channel.

The series was produced by ITV Studios and The Welded Tandem Picture Company for BBC Cymru Wales and shot in Bristol. The pilot was written by Howard Overman and directed by Damon Thomas. The full series was written by Overman, Matt Jones and Jamie Mathieson and directed by Tom Shankland. The series along with the pilot episode was released on DVD by ITV Studios Home Entertainment. An original television soundtrack album featuring music from the series composed by Daniel Pemberton was released by 1812 Recordings.

The show was not given a second series. Mangan wrote on Twitter: "It gives me no pleasure whatsoever to report that the BBC have decided not to make any more Dirk Gently."

"Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency"
Season 1 Episodes (2016)

Bellboy Todd Brotzman, while tasked to check in on the hotel's penthouse suite, is disturbed when he sees himself talking to an unknown person in one of the hotel's floors. When he reaches the penthouse, he is shocked to discover that its guest, the wealthy Patrick Spring, and other men have been brutally murdered seemingly by a large animal. Todd becomes a person of interest in the investigation when he is further met by Dirk Gently, who forcing injects himself in Todd's life. Dirk claims to be a "holistic detective" and that he was hired by Patrick to investigate his murder, and drags Todd into being his assistant in his investigation. Along the way, they are joined by Farah Black, Patrick's bodyguard who had been held captive during Patrick's murder while trying to find Patrick's missing daughter, Lydia.

Their investigation revolves around a machine created by 19th century inventor Zachariah Webb. Zachariah's invention generated near infinite energy, allows the souls of two bodies to be swapped, and even travel through time. However, one of Zachariah's tests resulted in the machine falling forward in time to the 1960s, where it was found by a group of hippies. Initially using the soul-swapping to create trans-extensional experiences with zoo animals, the hippies starting using the machine to transfer souls with influential people, gaining wealth and power and become the cult "Men of the Machine". In the present, this cult is led by Gordon Rimmer. In the days prior to Patrick's murder, Lydia Spring had figured out a connection between her family and Gordon and accosted him about it, but instead he abducted her, swapped her soul with that of a corgi, and planned to use Lydia to coerce Patrick into swapping souls.

Through clues left by Edgar Spring, Patrick's father, Dirk and Todd find the machine, and use it to travel in time just before Patrick's murder, hoping to stop Gordon. However, their arrival at the penthouse is joined by a figure in clockwork armor, disrupting the meeting. A cat, whose soul had been transferred with a shark, gets loose, and the shark's soul psycho-kinetically attacks everyone present, killing Patrick and some of Gordon's cult. As Dirk, Todd, and the armored figure flee the hotel, Todd recognizes the conversation he had seen himself in previously. Later they encounter an earlier version of Dirk, and the older version provides his younger self with cryptic clues to help solve the case later. Outside, the armored figure reveals himself as Edgar Spring - but in actuality is Zachariah and Patrick. With a version of the time machine sent back to him in the 19th century by Dirk and Todd, he traveled forward in time to recover his initial machine from the Men of the Machine by 2001, and buried it, leaving the clues behind for Dirk and Todd to find. Now aware that he will be killed in the future and of Lydia's plight, Edgar returns to 2001 and sets up events so that he can assure Dirk will take Patrick's case and that they will complete all the necessary events to close the time loop and save Lydia.

With help of Farah, Todd's sister Amanda, Bart Curlish, an "holistic assassin" who believes she must kill Dirk and her companion Ken, and the "Rowdy 3", a band of four violent punks that feed off psychic energy, Dirk and Todd are able to stop Gordon and the Men of the Machine from using Zachariah's device further, leading to their deaths, while returning Lydia to her body before the machine is destroyed. Dirk sets up his "Holistic Detective Agency" with Todd and Farah.
