Jonathan Creek is back in another spooky tale, calling upon his friend and sceptic Joey Ross (Sheridan Smith) to investigate a series of sinister and bewildering events at a house called Green Lanterns.
When the beautiful young Emily Somerton is recruited to work as an assistant housekeeper to famous crime writer Hugo Doré she discovers the premises are home to a bizarre, unsolved Victorian murder mystery …
And following the grisly death of her employer’s wife Harriet, all the evidence suggests Emily is guilty of the crime. Ghostly visions, death threats she cannot remember writing, and the final, accusing words of the victim herself convince Emily she is losing her mind. And once again it is up to Jonathan Creek to dig deep and look beyond the paranormal for an explanation. Using his powers of analysis and deduction he and Joey find themselves in a race against time as they struggle to make sense of the baffling problem before them. A problem which leads, finally, to the eerie, isolated Judas Tree … and a solution more shocking than anyone could have imagined.

I've always been a fan of Jonathan Creek, and after the excellent special last year, I had high hopes for this, as a rare new episode. I have to admit I was disappointed. Unlike some of the other reviewers here, I don't think it was a total waste of time, as the story went on it redeemed itself a little, but admittedly was still disjointed and sometimes silly.
The story itself doesn't really kick in for 45 minutes, up until this point I wondered what Jonathan and Joey were bothering to investigate: a hundred odd year old ghost story, some mildly threatening notes and a ghostly figure in the woodshed - all didn't seem to amount to much. Halfway through a murder takes place, but as another reviewer has noted, whilst you might guess a couple of answers, the audience has no way of deducing the whole story because a key element of the back story is kept from us until the end.
Perhaps had the writers thought the story through a bit more and worked with some of the strong elements (an empty house full of sheeted furniture and figures is rather creepy) and left out the stupid bits (seriously the cat litter, why did we need to see that?). The ending reveals how the deed was done, but the moral element jarrs when we consider who should have been punished, is there an easy answer?
I hope more episodes will be commissioned, but on the basis of this one and the feedback here, I don't have high hopes.
I am so annoyed with this part of Creek that I am selling it. Lets hope the latest Creek sets its foot on a more solid ground.
Although it was fairly creepy in places, and started out promisingly enough, I felt that too much was missing. Unlike the previous episodes (especially seasons one and two), the humour wasn't there, nor was the fulfilling end where you suddenly think "Yes! Of course, that's how they did it!" Instead, I suspected the twist at the end (which never happened before, I was never able to guess), and when you saw how it was pulled off, there were irritating details which made you think that rather than being clever, the prepetrators were also very lucky to get away with it. Some details just didn't seem to add up properly.
Having said that, it was a way of passing time on a quiet Easter Sunday night, but itf you're looking for the true magic of Jonathan Creek you really need to turn to the old favourites.
The series episodes of Jonathan Creek ranged from the magnificent to the annoying, and after the magnificence of The Grinning Man [DVD] , this episode, whilst enjoyable, was simply not in the same league.
