BBC Radio 4 has just launched the first in a new radio series dramatizing the Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency books. They have the producers from the last HHGTTG team and a Hobbit from the LotR movies. Ok it's only Pippin (Billy Boyd). From the site:
Featuring a star-studded cast with Harry Enfield in the lead role, Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency will be produced by the same award-winning team that made the conclusion to The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy. Harry is joined by Lord of the Rings actor Billy Boyd, Fawlty Towers' Andrew Sachs [Manuel!], The Golden Compass' Jim Carter and Peepshow's Olivia Colman.So, um yeah.
