Two Clips From New Jonathan Creek – My Top Tip For Your Easter Monday Viewing

jonathan creek 2

My advice to you, at least if you live in the UK: stay in on Monday night and polish off the last of the chocolate eggs* with the first episode of Jonathan Creek in three years.

Creek is the opposite of an Easter egg, really. Whereas the egg is hollow but smooth and lovely on the outside, this show can seem pretty dappy at times, but there’s always something going on inside the episodes, behind the preposterousness.

And anyway, I like the dappy preposterousness.

This new, 90-minute story is called The Clue of the Savant’s Thumb and features Alan Davies, Sheridan Smith – who may not be returning for the new series shooting later this year so enjoy her while you can – and, amongst the guest stars, Joanna Lumley.

There are a couple of clips on the BBC website. They don’t appear to give anything away, but Jonathan Creek can be funny that way. And I would embed them here, but they autoplay. Tsk!

*Presuming you have more willpower than me, at least. I don’t know anybody ever has any left the next day.
