In recent years I have been more of a fan of criminal shows than cop shows.
Leverage, Trailer Park Boys are two examples that come to mind.
Gee, if only there were some LEVERAGE novels coming out soon . . .

The locked-room mysteries, like Jonathan Creek, are what I've always called "howdunits." I freaking LOVED that show.
Why the past sense? -aren't you looking forward to the new ep?
Last I heard, Alan Davies said there WON'T be any new episodes.

Not a very reliable source, I know, but Wikipedia quotes Davies' Twitter-feed to the extent that there will be made one more episode next year.

I too loved this show for the reason you mention up-thread -and because it shows that you can make a crime-mystery very entertaining without blood and scarred bones

AH! Well, here's hoping, then. I'll look for it next year---maybe an Easter special?

Re: Cop/Detective Shows

I will second the earlier suggestions of Bones and Murdoch Mysteries. Last I checked they are both on Netflix instant watch. I started watching Bones from the beginning last year, and it quickly became one of my favorite TV shows. A little slow in the first 4-5 episodes, but after that it really took off in my opinion.
