BBC FOUR's 'Dirk Gently in trailer form!
I would never make the claim of being a massive fan of Douglas Adams' Dirk Gently books but I have read them, and enjoyed them immensely. I only say that because though I am ecstatic about the upcoming BBC4 television show I cannot offer up an opinion on whether or not they've 'hit it on the head'. It certainly looks like a detective show of sorts and Steve Mangan looks like he is detecting. I dunno. I always pictured Gently in my mind as just two steps away from becoming a miscreant. Perhaps I just needed to see a Viking in the trailer to assure me they're honoring the material. Those of you more intimate with the material please chime in and tell us what you think of the first trailer for the upcoming series. 

Stephen Mangan will play Douglas Adams' eccentric detective Dirk Gently in a new BBC Four drama based on the author's cult novel, Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency.
He is joined by Darren Boyd as his unwitting sidekick Richard Macduff and Helen Baxendale as Richard's girlfriend Susan in the adaptation by Bafta-winning Howard Overman.
Anti-hero Dirk Gently operates his eponymous detective agency based on the fundamental interconnectedness of all things. Perpetually broke, hopelessly chaotic and utterly infuriating, most people suspect Dirk is nothing more than a cheap conman. And they might be right - but nevertheless his methods, though unusual, do often produce surprising results.
When Dirk sets out to solve an apparently simple and harmless disappearance of a cat from an old lady's house, he unwittingly uncovers a double murder which, in turn, leads to a host of even more extraordinary events.
