Is it 9 or 8.30? Our tv guide says 8.30!

So very many far fetched boondoggles going on in the first half an hour, but I enjoyed it nonetheless and it was a welcome return. Alan Davies can do no wrong, in any case!

Really enjoyed it, even if the espionage plot felt unnecessary. David Renwick should write for Doctor Who.

I find that odd as I always assumed Creek was in part inspired by it.

Regardless, he's one of my favourite TV writers.

Re: Jonathan Creek Easter spesh Beeb 1

I liked it a lot, probably the best one for a while. I think the espionage/conspiracy theory was a bit much, and I couldn't quite buy Planers' character's actual death, but the solution to the locked room mystery was great, and really it's just nice to see Davies in a duffle coat again

Really don't buy him marrying Sarah alexander however!

Re: Jonathan Creek Easter spesh Beeb 1

3 more have been commissioned but Sheridan Smith is concerned she might not make it back because she's very busy over the next year.

As for the episode, well all very convoluted but enjoyable. The whole marriage/job aspect seemed forced, wonder if it's something they'll delve in to in the series ahead?

Shame she does make a good foil for Jonathan. Would anyone else like to see Rik Mayall's paraplegic detective make a comeback?

He says he only likes to do it once every century.

Maybe they'll come up with a way to make it work when we know more about how their relationship works, but it really didn't seem to work in this episode.
