I'm a little late on this news, but then again I'm a little late getting into this series. BBC America has renewed it's new series Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency for a 10-episode second season. The show stars Samuel Barnett as Gently, a detective that doesn't look for clues, but rather connects the dots between coincidences. Elijah Wood plays Todd, a poor guy who is down on his luck and trying to help out his sick sister that gets caught up in a mess of a mystery.
I've watched three of the eight episode of season one so far and you can really feel the source material. It's based on a series of novel's by the late Douglas Adams and adapted for television by Max Landis. The series has a Doctor Who vibe going for it, which makes perfect sense since Adams, who may be best known for his The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy novels wrote three episode of Doctor Who and worked as the shows script editor for the seventh season in 1979.
The first season finale of Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency has three episodes left with the season finale airing December 10th.
