He claims that he follows the principles of quantum mechanics, and although the majority of his clients suspect he may be a conman he often produces surprising results. With the help of his assistant, Richard MacDuff, Dirk investigates a number of seemingly unrelated but interconnected cases.

White Heat is a BBC TV series, written by Paula Milne, and first broadcast in March 2012. The series follows seven students who first meet in a London -Tufnell Park- flat-share in 1965 and consists of 6 one-hour episodes, set in 1965, 1967, 1973, 1979, 1982 and 1990. The series shares its title, with Dominic Sandbrook's White Heat: A History of Britain in the Swinging Sixties.
The series was trailed in Radio Times with an article titled Our Friends in the South, an echo of Peter Flannery's 1996 TV series Our Friends in the North. Milne herself rejected a direct comparison however; "Our Friends in the North was absolutely seminal. But it didn't have a lot to do with women, and it didn't have a lot to do with race, and it didn't have a lot to do with sexual politics." Milne, who had experience of both the Central School of Art and Design and the Royal College of Art in the mid-Sixties, said her experience most tallied with that of the character Lilly.
"The mix of the personal and the political is framed by a flash-forward to the present day, in which the house is revisited by the former friends after one of their number dies and makes them the executors of his or her will." The identity of the dead character is withheld until the final episode.
