Working from his home in a converted windmill, Jonathan Creek (Alan Davies) is a magician with a natural ability for solving puzzles. He soon puts this ability to another use--solving murders.

Aside from the formulaic umm, formula, this is pure, fluffy entertainment - television at it's irreverent best. Highly recommended family entertainment. Credibility is stretched so far that it feels like the actors, writers and audience are sharing the joke that _someone_ on screen isn't privy to... imagine, a convention of JC fans who all wear duffel coats and some even live in windmills?? Deliciously daft
I knocked a star off but you'll have to figure out why.
BTW, has anyone noticed the uncanny resemblance of Alan Davies to Margaret Rutherford?
Odd how you never see them in the same room at the same time.
The show itself is excellent the first episode clocking in an a awesome 90 minutes it introduces the characters of Jonathan and Madelin very well, Jonathan opening scene and the way the shows us how smart he is , is just fun to watch. I won't talk much about the cases as to avoid spoiling but safe to say they are all amazing and some while not as taxing to work out as others they are all still excellent to watch. my only gripe and it is small is the final case for series 4 which was going to be the final episode ever as far as I could tell while still very clever didnt grip me as much as earlier ones.
But all in all if your a fan of mystery series with good characters and humor then I recommend you give this show a watch and the christmas specials are each 90 mins but are excellent to watch.
I preferred the first few series (with Carolyn Quentin) as I found the replacement assistant (Nadia Sawalha) rather irritating with her perpetually peeved disposition and high pitched ranting. That aside, they are intriguing and ingenious and I enjoyed them very much!
Although, when comparing these ones to the newer ones, it does show how poor the newest episodes are in comparison. Maybe should have hung up the Duffel coat and left it great.
