Created by one of Britain's most exciting screenwriting talents, Howard Overman (Misfits) and based on the books by Douglas Adams, Dirk Gently is a dramatic, witty and intelligent series with plots that delight, surprise, but ultimately satisfy. With two characters at the heart of each story that you just want to spend time with, brilliantly portrayed by Stephen Mangan and Darren Boyd, the series also boasts a sensational cast of regulars returning from the pilot--Helen Baxendale as Macduff's girlfriend Susan, Jason Watkins as Det. Insp Gilks with Lisa Jackson returning as the unpaid, unloved and quite deeply disturbed receptionist Janice Pearce across the series.

Stephen Mangan stars as Douglas Adams' self-styled Holistic Detective, Dirk Gently. Perennially broke and morally dubious, Dirk's methods are based on ‘The Fundamental Interconnectedness of All Things'. Darren Boyd stars as Dirk's business partner, Richard Macduff, who attempts to rein in Dirk's more tangential decisions, keep them both out of prison and generally restore order to the chaos that Dirk creates.

The pilot episode features Dirk's attempts to solve the disappearance of a billionaire inventor, taking in quantum mechanics, unrequited love and an old lady's missing cat. In Episode 1 of this new three-part series, Dirk discovers the connection between two unrelated cases; a client who believes the Pentagon are trying to kill him and another who's horoscopes appear to be coming true. In Episode 2 Dirk is called back to his old university to protect a valuable robot but within 24 hours it has been stolen and a dead body discovered, with Dirk & Macduff the prime suspect. In Episode 3 they are alarmed to discover that Dirk's old clients are being randomly murdered with Dirk as the only link. Rather than talk to the police, Dirk elects to leave the country but is waylaid by a series of seemingly unconnected events.

This DVD features the pilot episode, plus all 3 episodes from the new BBC4 series.
