Format: DVD
Jonathan Creek for those of you who don't know is a wonderfully funny comedy drama about the assistant to a magician who creates mind boggling illusions. Enter Jonathan Creek, brought wonderfully to the screen by stand up comic Alan Davies.
The third series sees Jonathan paired yet again with Maddy Magellian, an unauthordox, bossy investigative journalist. The pair try to unravel six baffling mysteries including a man selling his soul to the devil, an elderly woman who is predicting death, ab alien skeleton, a mysterious murder in a strange house and a gangster who seems to be killing from beyound the grave. Wonderful stuff.
Series Four sees the first appearance of Carla Borrengo, played superbly by Absolutely Fabulous' star Julia Sawalha. Creek and Carla try their hand at working out cases such as how a woman manmaged to grow back a full crop of hair after having it cut off, how a ghost hunter is communicating from the underword and how a killer can change colour in front of a band of witnesses. Baffling stuff.
Both Christmas specials are a welcome addition to the set as are some video diaries about the stars and writer. My one critism would be that the 2001 Xmas special and all the episodes from Series Four have been cut and edited.
JONATHAN CREEK IS FANTASTIC!

Format: DVD
This DVD boxset contains the entire series three and four (plus the two Christmas specials) in one box.
Jonathan Creek has a brilliant mind, a knack to solving impossible crimes and a brain to solve the trickiest of puzzles. His occupation as a magicians creative assistant allows him to experiment with the powers of illusion and tricks. Handy really, due to the fact that unorthodox crime-writer and journalist Maddy Magellian is always roping him in to solve seemingly baffling cases. The pair work wonderfully together and provide superb chemistry. Alan Davies makes Jonathan Creek his own and lends him a friendly, cuddly persona while Caroline Quentin's sharp performance as Maddy helps to make the programme the success it is.
SERIES THREE: (6 x 50 minutes) First broadcast 27/11/99 - 2/1/00
Episode 1 - THE CURIOUS TALE OF MR. SPEARFISH: Lenny Spearfish isn't having a great life until he agrees to sell his soul to the Devil. Luck seems to be on his side after that, and Jonathan and Maddy try to solve how he can twice escape a close contact shooting and the finding of a trasure chest in the back garden. 8/10
Episode Two - THE EYES OF TIRESIAS: A old lady seems to be having dreams that foretell grisly deaths. Can Jonathan unfoil her dark dreams or are they for real? 10/10
Episode Three: THE OMEGA MAN: Fans of the X-Files will love this episode. An alien life form, carefully perserved in a metal cabinet is stolen by the UN, but the skeleton vanishes when they remove the casing? Can Jonathan and Maddy tear themselves away from a book signing to shed some light on the case. 10/10
Episode Four: GHOST'S FORGE: What can a spooky old house have to do with a newspaper writing competition?

Format: VHS Tape
Jonathan Creek, the mastermind behind magician Adam Claus. In between creating new magic tricks he helps solve baffling crimes.
Stand-up comic Alan Davies is brilliantly cast as the title character. Caroline Quentin (instantly recognisable from Men Behaving Badly) is his reporter 'friend'. On this tape there are two episodes. The extended pilot episode 'Wrestler's Tomb' starring former Dr Who Colin Baker and 'Jack in the Box', the first 'proper' episode.
In Wrestler's Tomb, look out for Anthony Head (from Buffy) playing Adam Claus, and also look out for impressionist Alistair McGowan as Maddie Megelan's partner. This episode marks their only appearance in the series.
Basic plot lines..Wrestler's Tomb sees an artist shot dead while his mistress is left tied and gagged. The main suspect, his wife, has a tight alibi that she was in her office.
In 'Jack in the Box' a convicted murderer has his conviction overturned and is released. The husband of the woman he was accused of killing is found murdered inside a locked nuclear bunker, deep underground, with no visible means of escape for whoever did it.
If you've never seen Jonathan Creek before, this is definately the tape to start with. later episodes became slightly more 'far-fetched' (although still highly entertaining).
A huge recommendation from me !!

This is a treat for people who like a good puzzle to solve and are tired of the same old detective dramas TV seems to churn out these days. An hour and a half long, it never drags and your brain will be hurting after a while as you try to work out not only 'whodunnit' but how they did it. Jonathon Creek concentrates on the so-called 'locked room' and impossible crimes while having a good amount of humour. You would expect this as it was written by the man behind 'One Foot In The Grave', David Renwick. And its got Rik Mayall in it. What more do you want?

My favourite part of this video was the fact that the policeman (played brilliantly by Rik Mayall) was not a bumbling idiot but was, on many ocassions, cleverer than Jonathan.
The hilarious scene where Jonathan locks his car door when seeing a thug will remain with me for a long time! This episode will get you hooked and want to see more.
But when will the second series be released on Video?????
