Magic and mystery: Caroline Quentin and Alan Davies find a new way to solve crime
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...
