Product description

Product Description

Jonathan Creek is a master of illusion. Deviser of magic, creator of miracles, Jonathan creates spectacular stage stunts from his home – a mysterious windmill in the heart of the country. His brilliant analytical mind penetrates the darkest corners and cracks the trickiest of puzzles. But no showman, he lurks backstage while his boss Adam Faust steps in the limelight. Then Jonathan meets unorthodox crime journalist Maddy Magellan, who soon discovers another use for his extraordinary talent – solving murder by magic. The hottest partnership since Mulder and Scully, Jonathan and Maddy investigate crimes which seem to have no rational explanation. He is a bit of a nerd but he also a bit of a quick-witted genius. Maddy Magellan is an investigative crime writer, and the pair join forces to solve seemingly impossible crimes. There’s a fair element of the Columbo in here – how did-they-do-it as opposed to whodunit – but with plenty of twists, so it’s never quite that simple…

Series 1:

'The Wrestler's Tomb'
A celebrated artist has been killed, with a beautiful model bound and gagged by his side. The police are baffled – so it is just as well that Jonathan Creek accidentally spears Maddy’s hand with a cocktail stick …

'Jack in the Box'
Veteran comedian Jack Holiday has committed suicide. But how did a man with crippling arthritis manage to hold a gun to his head? And how was Jonathan duped into another of Maddy’s "grisly murder investigations"?

'The Reconstituted Corpse'
A plastic surgeon is murdered. The police suspect Zola Zbzewski, his ex-lover who is publicizing her book on how he gave her the perfect body. But then Zola is found dead in baffling circumstances …

'No Trace of Tracey'
A teenage girl disappears at the mansion of ‘70s rock god Roy Pilgrim. In the bizarre world of former rock legends, Jonathan seems a lot happier than Maddy; but then she was always more of a Percy Sledge girl.

'The House of Monkeys'
Elliot Strange’s husband has been murdered – in a locked room with bars on the windows – and the chief suspect is a gorilla! Cue Jonathan and Maddy …

Series 2:

'Danse Macabre'
The Halloween murder of a best-selling writer could have come straight from her own chillers. Jonathan is busy with an opera-singing stripper and a bath, so has Maddy learned enough about the illusory arts to solve this case alone?

'Time Waits For Norman'
The husband of Maddy’s literary agent has been photographed eating in a local hamburger bar. Slightly odd for a vegetarian … very odd for a man who is adamant he was in America at the time …

'The Scented Room'
Jonathan knows how a million pound painting was stolen. But after a bad review from the painting’s owner, even a £50,000 reward and a begging Maddy can’t persuade the moody magic man to tell …

'The Problem at Gallows Gate, Part One'
When Jonathan’s badger watch becomes a murder watch the intrigue is only just beginning … the man seen strangling a young woman had plunged to his death just weeks earlier.

'The Problem at Gallows Gate, Part Two'
As Jonathan develops an unhealthy obsession with stockings and Maddy becomes infuriated with his s-less typewriter, they look as unlikely as the police to solve the killed-by-a-dead-man conundrum.

'Mother Redcap'
A high profile judge is killed despite his round-the-clock police protection. Could Maddy’s gothic "pub of death" investigation hold the vital key?
