This is the first of three 6 x 30 minute full-cast dramatisations from the author and production team that brought us the most recent three series of "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy". This first production is based on Douglas Adams' novel of the same name, adapted by Mike Stott....

and directed by the hugely acclaimed Dirk Maggs. This series of six half-hours features a stellar cast with Harry Enfield as the eponymous Holistic Detective, Billy Boyd as his client Richard Macduff, Olivia Coleman as his secretary Janice Pearce, Jim Carter as his nemesis DS Gilks, Andrew Sachs (as Professor Reg Chronotis, Felicity Montagu as Susan Way, Robert Duncan as her brother Gordon, Toby Longworth as the Electric Monk and Michael Fenton Stevens as Michael Wenton Weakes.Although this adaption will maintain the element of comic absurdity and wit that appeals to HH fans, it will work in its own right as a comedy for listeners new to Adams.

Essentially a science fiction mystery comedy, the series explores everything from quantum physics, Norse Gods and an electric monk, to Coleridge, Schrodinger, Fractal theory, computer software & Bach.
