A plea to David Renwick, the greatest TV writer of the last 25 years:

Please, please, go back to the drawing board and make Jonathan Creek the masterpiece it once was.

In 2009 Caroline Quentin said she would happily return to the show if asked (you can view this on YouTube). Whatever happened 16 years ago, put it behind you and bring her back for a finale.

This fifth "series" barely even qualifies as a series. Three dreadful episodes, none of them either mysterious nor funny. The formula your millions of fans adored simply cast aside. The first episode in particular is an appalling "Columbo" type story in which we as viewers ALREADY KNOW the solution to the mystery (such as it is) and then watch Jonathan work it out. What were you thinking?

The second episode is simply a string of whimsical half-baked plots strung together featuring oddball characters from the village in which Jonathan now lives. The lottery winner storyline was intriguing enough - the rest of it was just genuinely dull.

The third episode at least features a death, and an excellent appearance from the wonderful Josie Lawrence. But the solution is absurd, involving a watch which just happens to fall from a tree in a storm in someone's hoodie - preposterous and silly.

David: perhaps after the best part of 20 years of Creek, you simply ran out of workable ideas. There are only so many "locked room" mysteries in the world. Perhaps you should have called it a day after "The Grinning Man", which was a really terrific special, albeit with a solution that doesn't stand up to any rational scrutiny. Everything since then has been a colossal disappointment.

To end Creek with this shockingly bad trio of episodes is a travesty - this memorable show deserves so much better. I beg you to remind us once again why this show was unmissable and give it one more try.
