4.0 out of 5 stars well done mysteries that any audience can love. June 4, 2009
Produced by the late great Verity Lambert , who also produced the early doctor who episodes and many other shows , this show never lets the viewer down. The characters are interesting and the leads are great. The only problem with british shows is that they don't produce lots of episodes. Fortunately this series lasted four seasons and had 2 christmas specials and a new year special for 2009. And there is a upcoming easter special for 2010. This show is well done and the whole family can enjoy the quirky characters and storylines. Fans of Columbo and other shows like that one; should enjoy this fun show. Every season is great and the show should be made into a functioning series again instead of just doing specials. This show is so good that mystery loving fans can watch all six episodes in a row and not feel fatigued! It's that fun, and even lighthearted in some aspects; in spite of people popping up dead along the way. Caroline Quentin as always just engages the audience just as expertly as she does in 'blue murder' which is a much more serious show. And Alan Davies is just as expert in bringing his character to life. This is one of my all time favorite brit mystery/ crime show and it deserves more episodes to be made.

4.0 out of 5 stars Windmills of your mind April 27, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Series 3 of Jonathan Creek keeps up the high standards of the first two series. The writing and plots are as ingenious as ever and Jonathan solves the mysteries with his usual diffident brilliance. There's lots of humor and Creek's boss is involved a little more, too, which is good.
The only downside is that Caroline Quentin doesn't seem to have the same gusto and enthusiasm as Maddie that she showed in the first two series. She was replaced for season 4 (by Julia Sawalha of Ab Fab), so perhaps she'd just found that she had no more to bring to the part. She's professional enough, but the outrageous chutzpah is missing.
Never mind, the show is still well worth watching. I'm not sure whether a new series is planned, but there have been several one-off specials, including one this past Christmas, and hopefully the BBC will release those in due course.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun mysteries. February 11, 2009
By jrc
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Series 3 is a fun collection of mysteries. For those unfamiliar with the series, it teams an investigative reporter with an illusionist (or, rather, creator of illusions for a stage magician). The two characters play off of each other quite well, and the shows are laced with a lot of humor. These were widely shown on BBC America here in the States. There are 4 seasons total (thus far) and BBC has been releasing them to DVD on Region 1 at about a year apart! So...look forward to Season 4 about a year from now....

In the meantime, there are reports that the title character is being resurrected for a new series in 2009, without Maggie. If that's a success, maybe the BBC will get Season 4 out sooner!

4.0 out of 5 stars Supernatural stew August 16, 2010
There's a very paranormal slant to the third season of "Jonathan Creek," as if the writers had watched a little too much "X-Files" -- you've got ghosts, ghouls, precognition, aliens and a pact with Satan. But fortunately the main concept (Jonathan debunks impossible crimes/tricks) is very much still in place, and Alan Davies and Caroline Quentin are still awesome.

A dinner party goes completely south in "The Curious Tale of Mr Spearfish" when a man claims to have signed a pact with the devil, which he credits for his newfound fame and luck. But even after a man trying to shoot him drops dead, Maddie and Jonathan suspect there's a more mundane explanation for what's happening.

And in "The Eyes of Tiresias," an old lady is having dreams of future murders that have a nasty habit of coming true. In "The Omega Man," Maddy is contacted by an extraterrestrial expert to take a look at an alien skeleton... only to have the US army (wha?) charge in and take it. The problem is, as soon as they unload it again, it's vanished into thin air. So guess who they drag in to help.

"Ghosts Forge" becomes a problem when an ex-coworker of Maddy's wants them to investigate a very old murder at a creaky old manor house. Then there's a "Miracle in Crooked Lane," when an ex-glamour model is almost killed in an explosion... and is seen several hours later on her way to church. Is it a true miracle, or does Jonathan have a more earthly answer?

And it all ends on a gruesome note with "The Three Gamblers," in which the police find a drug dealer who was bludgeoned and shot to death has somehow crawled up a flight of stairs... AFTER he died. His killer is literally going insane with fear, and a drug cartel is causing trouble.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Love Jonathan Creek February 28, 2009
I have the entire series. However, I can only play it on my computer because when I went to buy it, it was only available in the european version. Alan & Caroline played well off each other. They made a great team & the series is excellent. You will be intrigued by each episode. Try as you might, I defy you to figure it out before the end of each show. Their comedic timing & terrific acting make this a series that you will want to watch over & over again. What's this I hear about the title character being reprized this year in a new series?

anyone like the series jonathan creek?
I found a site which has Jonathan Creek info. According to far there are seasons 1 thru 4, 1998, 2001 and 2008 Christmas specials (do not know if they will be available on dvd). They hope to have a new 2010 Easter special entitled The Judas Tree, with Sheroidan Smith.
