The Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency



The show is based around the eccentric Dirk Gently (Samuel Barnett) who claims to be a "holistic detective", investigating obscure cases based on the inter-connectivity of all things. During the first season he befriends Todd Brotzman (Elijah Wood) and Farah Black (Jade Eshete) who help him with his cases. Dirk's past is linked with "Project Blackwing", a secret CIA project to evaluate subjects with strange abilities. Dirk is not only followed by agents of Blackwing trying to recapture him but also by Bart Curlish (Fiona Dourif), another Blackwing subject who considers herself a "holistic assassin" and believes she is destined to kill Dirk.


Based on the comedic novel by British writer Douglas Adams, DIRK GENTLY'S HOLISTIC DETECTIVE AGENCY introduces a new kind of detective-sideick relationship. Todd Brotzman (Elijah Wood) lives alone and works for a hotel where his boss doesn't appreciate him. At the end of a bizarre work day that sees Todd fired for discovering a multiple homicide in one of the guest rooms, Dirk Gently (Samuel Barnett) drops into his life. Claiming to be a "holistic detective," Dirk explains that his methods hinge on the "fundamental interconnectedness of all things" which are more complex than normal people might understand. Confused? So is Todd. But with his life in tatters, broke, and implicated in murders he didn't commit, Todd's reluctance to act as Dirk's sidekick wears down. Strange happenings and coincidences start piling up around him, and Todd begins to believe Dirk's claim that he is "meant" to assist the zany detective in solving the murders he's suspected of. Dirk assures him that as Todd takes control of his life, "interesting things will happen." And they do.


Pararibulitis is a nerve condition that affects some of the main characters on TV series Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency but is it a real disease? Dirk Gently is based on the 1987 novel by acclaimed author Douglas Adams (The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy). The book follows the title "holistic detective" who believes in the principle of quantum mechanics and that everything in the universe is interconnected, and uses that to solve crimes instead of looking for actual clues. The book is a mash-up of comedy, sci-fi and Adams' own distinct style.
