New York Comic Con attendees got to see the first episode of BBC America’s Elijah Wood-starring adaptation of Douglas Adams’ Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency. Everyone else will have to wait a few weeks, but in the meantime, here’s a clip that really captures the odd-couple chemistry of the show’s two leads.

Here’s a synopsis of the show, via BBC America:

When the bizarre murder of a millionaire thrusts loner Todd (Elijah Wood), into the orbit of Dirk Gently (Samuel Barnett) – an eccentric detective who believes they’re destined to solve the murder-mystery together – his life will never be the same. They’ll cross unlikely paths with a bevy of wild and dangerous characters, each episode landing them a few random steps closer to uncovering the truth.

Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency premieres October 22 on BBC America.
