Reseña del editor
Harry Enfield stars once again in a brand new full-cast dramatisation of Douglas Adams' second "Dirk Gently" novel, directed by the award-winning Dirk Maggs. Harry Enfield exuberantly returns as 'Dirk Gently', who, fallen on hard times and dressed as a gypsy woman, is using his irritatingly accurate clairvoyant powers to read palms. He is saved when a frantic client turns up with a ludicrous story about being stalked by a goblin waving a contract accompanied by a hairy, green-eyed, scythe-wielding monster. When Detective Superintendent Gilks decides a headless body found in a sealed room is the result of a particularly irritating suicide, Dirk is plunged into a mystery where the interconnectedness of all things is tested to the limit...This is the second of three series adapted from the "Dirk Gently" books, directed by Dirk Maggs (chosen by Douglas Adams to conclude the award-winning "Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy"). Guest stars include Peter Davison ("Doctor Who"), Jan Ravens ("Dead Ringers"), Philip Jackson ("Poirot"), John Fortune ("Bremner, Bird & Fortune"), Morwenna Banks ("Absolutely"), Stephen Moore ("The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy") and returning cast members Olivia Colman ("Peep Show"), Jim Carter ("The Golden Compass") and Billy Boyd ("The Lord Of The Rings"). This CD contains over thirty minutes of additional unbroadcast material.

What I liked best about this adaptation is that it smooths out some of the inconsistencies of the novel, streamlining the storytelling and creating a narrative that makes a lot more sense than Adams' novel did; there are, for one thing, a lot fewer red herrings, and incidental details (like why Dirk starts using the electronic i-ching) finally make sense to me. It's also quite nice to hear a lot of familiar voices, between old-time Adams favorites like Stephen Moore and Susan Sheridan, a cameo by Billy Boyd, and a supporting role for Peter Davison.
I'm just sad that Dirk Maggs and Above the Title had a falling out and that nobody will be fleshing out and producing Salmon of Doubt.
Still, a great adventure for fans of audio dramas, radio comedy, or Douglas Adams. Highly recommended.
I am all for paying tribute to Douglas Adams' work, but the pleasure of brief cameos by unrelated characters from the first novel and even from the Hitchhikers novels, goes beyond a sweet surprise and veers headlong into a moronic, unnecessary and distracting assault on the story line. Besides these distractions the story has been adapted from mildly dark humor with occasional stops to comment on modern life, to near Marx Brothers levels of verbal slap stick. Main characters (the gods) of reasonable dignity are portrayed as little more than deranged rejects from a sanitarium.
Save your money and just read, or re-read the novel.
Or, if you want to hear what it should have sounded like, hunt down the unabridged audio book read by Douglas Adams on Amazon. It's real pleasure and offers the repeat playability of the Hitchhikers series.
