New Series Of Jonathan Creek To Follow The Easter Special

BBC One have been using Saturday night for a “certain sort of show” for some years now. The certain sort of show we tend to write about here at Bleeding Cool, in fact.

Most people’s favourite, I expect, would be Doctor Who. Others would prefer Merlin. Or Bugs or Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased) or Robin Hood or lord knows what other forgotten thing. There really was some screwy stuff in the 90s. Rich can probably rattle off at least five more names, and he might remember some of them very fondly. That’s… Rich.

But my favourite of them all would be, without any doubt, Jonathan Creek, the “impossible mysteries” show starring a master illusion-maker and critical thinker that wears his unfashionable coat, hair and intellect the way Columbo wore his.

For too long, Jonathan Creek has been away. So long away that I thought it would never come back. But I was wrong – the BBC set it up for a new special at Easter, The Savant’s Thumb.

And better still, this new, feature-length story won’t be the end of it.

Alan Davies, the once and future Creek, tweeted the following.

We can take it as read, I’m sure, that David Renwick will be writing the new episodes, as he has done every previous Jonathan Creek story.

With three episodes filming in the Autumn I guess we’ll be seeing them in the winter, likely in January. Or maybe Creek will move at a Sherlock pace and what gets filmed in the autumn will be screened in the Summer. We’ll have to wait and see. I can do that. Wait and wait and wait and wait and see? Well, if I have to.

Okay, one of my wish list is crossed off. Now I’ll get on with hoping that Renwick will somehow find a way to give us more Love Soup or something like it.
