Magic and mystery: Caroline Quentin and Alan Davies find a new way to solve crime
Jonathan Creek
8.10pm BBC1
Written by One Foot in the Grave's 's David Renwick and starring two people renowned for comedy, Alan Davies and Caroline Quentin, Jonathan Creek is, surprisingly, not a comedy. It's a five-part series of murder mysteries, with just a few jokes and visual gags as a clue to its writer.
Jonathan Creek (Davies) is a bit of a nerd. He wears a dufflecoat, lives in a windmill and has problems with women (he doesn't understand them). He's also a bit of a quick-witted genius and devises magic tricks for a smarmy magician (Anthony Head, from the Gold Blend adverts). Maddy Magellan (Quentin) is an investigative crime writer, and the pair join forces to solve seemingly impossible crimes. There's a fair element of the Columbo in here - how-did-they-do-it as opposed to whodunit - but with plenty of twists, so it's never quite that simple...

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
