Thoroughly enjoyed watching Jonathan and Maddy back in action solving the whodunit.
Good actors with a lot of plot twists to keep one guessing!
Have only just discovered this clever little show. Alan Davies as Jonathan Creek uses his magical smarts to help solve puzzling mysteries. Some unique little twists keep you guessing until the end.
Jonathan Creek (Alan Davies) is a master of illusion. The brains behind magician Adam Klaus, he hides his brilliance behind a shy, shaggy exterior. He's no match for pushy, unorthodox journalist Maddy Magellan (Caroline Quentin) who has discovered another use for his unusual talents – solving impossible murders.
Episodes One and Two: The Wrestler's Tomb
Contemporary expressionist painter Hedley Shale is found murdered with two bullets in his chest in the upstairs bedroom at his South London home, eccentrically named The Wrestler's Tomb. Lying nearby is his secret lover, French model Francesca Boutron bound and gagged. Shale's wife, Serena, would, by all laws of logic, appear to be the killer. But she was at work throughout the morning on her side of town…
Episode Three: Jack in the Box
Former film star Jack Holiday was a lot of laughs in the 50s,60s and 70s. But
times and comedy have moved on. When he is discovered dead in a locked nuclear
bunker with a gun beside his head, surely it would have been impossible for him
to have pulled the trigger? An ingenious
murder, then. But how did the killer leave the concrete shelter, located 30ft underground inside a rock-face of solid granite, through a steel-plated door that could only have been locked form the inside?
Episode Four: The Reconstituted Corpse
At 43, Zola Zbzewski has the sort of looks many women can only dream of. For
the past 10 years, she has spent many thousands of pounds on an intensive
course of facelifts, implants,tucks, bobs and dermabrasions to transform
herself. For many years, the man who performed all these operations, cosmetic
surgeon David Curchin, also shared her bed. Curchin vows to destroy her when
Zola decides to go public with an account of their relationship, but it is
who is destroyed..
Episode Five: No Trace of Tracy
Roy Pilgrim is a living legend. Former lead singer and electric violinist with the rock band Edwin Drood, he is still idolised by female fans the world over. But when one of them,16-year-old Tracey Cook,turns up at his country house to meet the great man and apparently vanishes into thin air, the police are clearly faced with a problem…
Episode Six: The House of Monkeys
When nationally renowned doctor and cancer researcher Elliot Strange is discovered dead inside a locked room, impaled on a 12th-century Samurai blade, the authorities are understandably baffled. Since nobody could possibly have got into the study and nobody could have got out and the other occupants in the house at the time of the murder were a dozen pet monkeys, perhaps Dr Strange did, indeed,somehow engineer his own suicide. But why? And why was he heard, seconds before his death, screaming in mortal terror ?
