Star turn: Bob Monkhouse joins Alan Davies and Caroline Quentin in Jonathan Creek.
Jonathan Creek 9.00pm BBC1
Gameshow host Bob Monkhouse makes a convincing appearance as an overweight, overbearing theatre critic in this latest episode of the magical sleuthing drama. Married to an aristocrat and living in a stately home, Bob's character looks to be having a good time until an expensive painting goes missing during a school visit to their home. Catching wind of the story and the promised reward, reporter Maddy tricks Jonathan into accompanying her to the scene of the crime.
It takes our magician a mere rabbit's whisker of time to work out the mystery, but a grudge against the said critic prevents him from sharing his knowledge. This, and her suppressed lust for Mr Creek, turn Maddy into a maddened moose on heat. Will she get her reward or her man?
