New Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency Teaser: Elijah Wood Is Still Not Your Watson, Asshole

By

You can never have too many eccentric British detectives ... right? Here, we have a new look at BBC America's upcoming Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency series, which is perhaps best described as a hearty mix of the following: the murder-mystery narratives of Sherlock, the campy sci-fi elements of Doctor Who, and the goofiness of Psych. The show follows the surreal misadventures of the bizarrely "holistic" detective Dirk Gently (Samuel Barnett) and his hesitant assistant Todd (Elijah Wood), as they attempt to solve various crimes together. Based on the original novels by Douglas Adams and adapted for the small screen by Max Landis, Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency is set to air October 22. Watch the latest, megaconspiratorial teaser above, and then check out the Comic Con–occasioned first look, below.
