Harry Enfield stars as the eponymous detective in two full-cast radio dramatisations of Douglas Adams' Dirk Gently novels.

Dirk Gently has an unshakeable faith in the interconnectedness of all things, but his Holistic Detective Agency mainly succeeds in tracking down missing cats – until he becomes embroiled in two surreal, supernatural cases that will test his belief to the limits...

Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency When an old friend starts behaving strangely, Dirk is drawn into a murder investigation involving quantum physics, an Electric Monk and a four-billion-year-old mystery that must be solved if the human race is to avoid immediate extinction.

The Long Dark Tea-Time of the Soul Fallen on hard times, the psychic sleuth is reading palms in a tent, dressed as an old gypsy woman. But the discovery of a headless body in a sealed room plunges Dirk into a mystery involving a goblin, a giant eagle and several Norse gods…

Directed for BBC Radio 4 by Dirk Maggs (chosen by Douglas Adams to conclude the award-winning The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy), these fantastically entertaining comedy sci-fi dramas star Harry Enfield as Dirk Gently, with Olivia Colman, Billy Boyd, Andrew Sachs, John Fortune, Peter Davison, Jan Ravens, Susan Sheridan, Jim Carter and many more.

These CDs contain over 90 minutes of additional unbroadcast material. Duration: 7 hrs approx.
