Dirk Gently BBC Radio
« on: June 16, 2009, 02:40:20 PM »
Did anyone catch either one of these (Holistic Detective Agency & Long Dark Teatime)?  I missed both and was wondering how well they adapted the books to radio.  Are they worth buying on CD?

I didn't quite know that this existed. That is, I knew there was a fan-made version which I haven't listened to much of yet, but if there's an official version, I've never heard of it.

I heard parts of the first episode online, and from what I could tell the actors were well chosen and I got several laughs from the bits I heard.  Unfortunately I can't speak for either of the series as a whole, but knowing that they're based on a Douglas Adams work, I'd have to say they're most likely worth buying.

I didn't see them.
