"Let us prepare to grapple with the ineffable itself, and see if we may not eff it after all"

We reported back in the dim days of August that BBC would be making a one shot pilot of an adaptation of Douglas Adams' Dirk Gently novels. A one shot pilot means that they are only making the pilot, but will air it for everyone to see. It's possible that they'll make a series if it's very well received, but they're not planning on it initially. It's sort of like a one night stand in which you actually do sort of like the other individual. Oh, it is indeed happening, and there are no plans for a second date, but last names and phone numbers are actually noted down, just on the off chance that it might become a mutually agreed upon series of events. I'm sure that there are a plethora of adaptations of this metaphor to support such nuance as "mini-series," "commercial breaks," and "horror musical," but I'll leave that to the experts in the comments.

In any case, here's the trailer, which looks fantastic. It's exceptionally brief, only a teaser (and how does that work into the metaphor, I wonder) and positively oozes a "Doctor Who" vibe, although I did always picture Gently as older and frankly a bit portly.


Additionally, here's a nice publicity shot of the cast, in Gently's office (click to embiggen):
