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.
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...

Jonathan Creek is actually a real place in Kentucky, USA which writer ,David Renwick discovered whilst driving through there with his wife and decided to store the name away for future reference. See more »
Barring two or three sitcoms it is the best show ever made in the UK.
Words can't really describe how good this show is. In fact it is the
only show made in the last ten years in England that would make you
give up an entire Saturday night out for. Staying in to watch it would
make it worthwhile.
It keeps you on the edge of your seat from the start, continually
guessing and playing detective and how Renwick comes up with the a
different storyline each week is as incredible as his talent to do the
same with One Foot In The Grave.
To the people who were gripped by Sixth Sense and failed to guess the
ending. Watch this and you'll see proper suspense. If you don't enjoy
Jonathan Creek I really don't know what you expect from a TV programme.
This show covers so many genres.
