I admit that we at IGP dropped the ball here. When the BBC aired a pilot based on the Douglas Adams story of a “holistic” detective back in December 2010, we missed it. Completely. Well, according to SFX, after the popularity of that one off special, the BBC have decided to commission a new three episode series with Stephen Mangan returning to the role of the eccentric detective. The new series will pick up where the pilot left off, featuring three brand new cases for Gently.
