Working from his home in a converted windmill, Jonathan Creek is a magician with a natural ability for solving puzzles. He soon puts this ability to the use of solving impossible crimes and mysterious murders.
Detective Inspector Jack Frost is an unconventional policeman with sympathy for the underdog and an instinct for moral justice. Sloppy, disorganized and disrespectful, he attracts trouble like a magnet.
After a serial killer imitates the plots of his novels, successful mystery novelist Richard "Rick" Castle gets permission from the Mayor of New York City to tag along with an NYPD homicide investigation team for research purposes.
With the help of DS John Bacchus, Inspector George Gently spends his days bringing to justice members of the criminal underworld who are unfortunate enough to have the intrepid investigator assigned to their cases.
Madeline Magellan, an investigative journalist, is the kind of journalist that generally sticks her nose in where it isn't wanted. While writing a story about the murder of a famous Artist she happens across a quiet but brilliant man named Jonathan Creek. Jonathan makes a living inventing magical tricks for Adam Klaus. Adam is a very famous magician but it is Jonathan that is the real genius behind Adam's illusions. Madeline (Maddy) and Jonathan team up to solve the Artist murder and then (for Jonathan with some reluctance) again team up to solve near-impossible cases. Over the stories, we see that Maddy is in love with Jonathan but Jonathan, being a shy person, doesn't show if he knows about Maddy's feeling for him but he loves solving the tricky mysteries that Maddy brings for his mind to solve...

The windmill that Jonathan Creek lives in, is open to the public. It's in the town of Shipley, West Sussex, around 6 or 7 miles South of Horsham, England. See more »

I was just wondering what the technical term for that was - not so much "bigamy" as "bugger-me".

O.K, I actually haven't seen the whole series, but from the one one season I've seen this is the best mystery TV series ever made, and its writers' ability to invent new mysterious situations all the time makes them, in my opinion, to the modern version of Agatha Christie. In addition, the writers succeed keeping the series' special sense of humor even in the most thrilling scenes. I've never heard of someone that could figure the mysteries out by himself before Jonathan and Maddy reached the real solution. A breathtaking original series! The best one by the BBC SELECT! Absolutely a Must-See!
