‘Being Human’ star joins ‘Dirk Gently’ cast

Posted Filed under

Adapted from Douglas Adams’ cult novel by Misfits creator Howard Overman, the original Dirk Gently pilot first aired on the channel in December last year, attracting an audience of 1.1m viewers, and will return next year for a full series.

Watkins told CultBox: “I’ve been doing a series called Dirk Gently, with [Green Wing star] Stephen Mangan. I’m filming that now; I’m on my way down to Bristol. There’s three hour-long episodes and I’m in two of them.”

The actor also confirmed his other upcoming roles: “Then I’m in an episode of [BBC Two comedy series] Twenty Twelve. Also, I did a film a couple of years ago called Nativity with Martin Freeman and that did very well, so we’re doing another one of those. Unbelievable, a British sequel! David Tennant is doing that, so we’re filming that at the moment too.”
