Jonathan Creek may have left his windmill and the world of professional magic behind, but as he settles down for what ought to be a quiet married life, there are still plenty of bizarre mysteries to tax his unique deductive powers.
In the first of three new episodes, as he and his beautiful wife Polly leave the city to move into her deceased parents’ sprawling old house in the country, the dust has barely settled when Creek is called upon to investigate a brutal and baffling murder attempt in a West End London theatre.
The leading actress in a spooky Gothic musical has been found stabbed, unconscious, and left for dead in an empty dressing room from which no assailant could possibly have escaped. But just as challenging are a number of other ghostly events that begin to occur in the village where Creek and Polly have now made their home ... and which in the weeks to come will provide yet more classic puzzles for the lateral-thinking detective to unravel.

Quentin left and Julia Sawalha came in and started brightly with the special, Satans Chimney. This was a good episode, and Carla (Sawalha) and Jonathan had a bit of chemistry. Series 4 continued with Carla by Jonathan's side, and was very hit and miss. Adrian Edmondson was an excellent addition, and some of the stories very good, however the overall feel of the series had changed and had lost some of its magic.
JC took a well deserved rest from our screens for a few years, when it was announced there would be an Easter special, the grinning man. I was worried going into this episode, but I need not have been as it was a cracker. Sheridan Smith was added as Joey Ross, JC new sidekick. The storyline was arguably the best of them all, the mystery the most intriguing, with lots of juicy red herrings along the way. I am not sure even Quentin could have improved this episode.
Then the next special the Judas tree came out. This episode was not as good as the grinning man, but was still very good.
The Savants thumb was the next special, and in truth was quite poor. JC has grown up, sold out and is now living a very mundane life, being hen pecked by Polly (Sarah Alexander), whilst holding down a boring office job. This special laid the track for the forthcoming series, it did though retain the essence of JC by giving him some mysteries to solve.
Finally we have series 5, it is terrible. No mystery, no comedy, no master villain, no soul.Read more ›
Series five is a big disappointment. It may have some charms and highlights, but the show has become a disaster. The Johnathan Creek I admired has gone. In this fifth series, he has become a lifeless shell, a lobotomised shadow of his former self. Gone is the windmill, the interest in magic acts and the classic duffle coat. Instead, this Johnathan-imposter is a married man, living in the city and working as a high powered businessman who wears a suit. Yes, that is right. Johnathan is seen many times in a suit and tie. It is the very definition of unnatural! What is worse is that the show tries to make this ‘grown-up’ version of Johnathan look like a good thing. Well I tell you what, Mr Renwick (The normally wonderful writer of the series) it is not! There is a feeling that perhaps he wanted to write another series, but couldn’t be bothered and just mashed the idea up with Johnathan Creek.Read more ›
In an almost blasphemous change of format, the first episode reveals the mystery's solution within the first ten minutes, completely obliterating the entire point of watching the rest, which merely consisted of weak mini-mysteries and a huge long-running 'gag' about pointing fun at 'Sherlock'. While I've never disliked Maddy, Carla or Joey (Creek's previous sidekicks), Polly Creek (Sarah Alexander) just has the completely wrong attitude for Creek's adventures and serves more as a killjoy whenever Jonathan feels like getting back to his roots. The worst thing about this episode is that if the format was as is normal, it might actually have been a really fantastic episode, but it seems they were too busy poking fun at other programs to realise that they were actually making a terrible episode themselves.
The second episode was slightly better, but extremely weak on the mystery front, which focused on lots of little mysteries happening in the middle of the village where Jonathan and Polly now live. By the end of the episode, I really couldn't care less what the solution to the main mystery was, and I found myself voicing 'Meh!Read more ›

A sadly lackluster final outing for the great illusionist and sleuth, this last series of Jonathan Creek feels, in the end, tired. Read morePublished 15 days ago by Amazon Customer
The worst of all the Jonathan Creek series. Looked like it was made just for the sake of it. Acting okay, poor story lines. Nowhere near the quality of the other series.Published 27 days ago by Azrael
