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.
In the very first episode, the character of Adam Klaus was played by Anthony Head. Although intended to be in every episode, the character was never seen in the rest of the first series. For the second series and beyond, Stuart Milligan played the role due to Head's involvement in Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1997).

The eponymous Jonathan Creek duffel coat actually belonged to Alan Davies. He wore it to set on his first day of filming and everyone agreed it suited the character perfectly.
