    Can anyone help identify a recent channel 4 comedy series concerning the various adventures of a 70's styled psychic investigator( or, possibly, he was some sort of scientist, or technician?) I remember it being quite similar to The Mighty Boosh.



    I also recall it had a man's name in the title, and was shown 3 or 4 years ago on channel 4 in a late night time slot.



    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    No, that's Matt Berry, who played Garth Marenghi's best pal.
