HE'S BACK AT LAST .....................,
This review is from: Jonathan Creek - The Grinning Man [DVD] (DVD)
It was a joy to have Jonathan Creek back on the small screen in the New Year after such a long time. Pity we had to wait so long for the DVD. This time, ably assisted by Sheridan Smith, he is investigating deaths in a gothic mansion complete with storms and tempest and loads of atmosphere. I am pleased to say that I certainly did not see a way round the plot. Had I done so, it would have thoroughly spoiled it for me.
I will not go into any detail and spoil the story for those who have not seen it, but it was a delight to see Jonathan in his duffle with his curly mop solve the mystery.
He seems to have stood the sands of time remarkably well. What a pity that the Beeb cannot persuade Caroline Quentin to join him again. They made such a great pair, however, Sheridan Smith does well in taking on the role and following in such fabulous footsteps as Ms Quentin. I have heard that we are to get another visit from our hero in the not too distant hero.
Welcome back Jonathan.
A must-see for all his fans.
