Jonathan Creek is finally back - but he's not quite the man we once knew! The amateur investigator (Alan Davies) has moved out of his windmill, discarded his duffle coat and taken an office job in the big city - but surely he can't resist the lure of a good mystery when his old partner Joey Ross comes calling?
Digital Spy and other journalists spoke to Sheridan Smith - who plays Joey - about long-awaited Easter special 'The Clue of the Savant's Thumb' and her uncertain future with the show...
Have you enjoyed returning to Jonathan Creek after three years away?
"Yeah, we're like a little family - me and Alan have kept in touch, but it's nice to be back with him in his duffle coat and me with my torch! And David [Renwick] is a genius writer - so yeah, it's great to be back again."
Jonathan's very different »
Davies will be back in the title role, with Sheridan Smith reprising her part as fellow investigator Joey Ross. The 90-minute episode is titled 'The Clue of the Savant's Thumb'.
Speaking at the Royal Television Society Awards last night, Smith told Digital Spy: "It's lovely to be back together. It's always the same cast and crew and we've also got Rik Mayall and Joanna Lumley this time. It's like having an old family back together."
Davies and writer David Renwick recently confirmed that a full three-episode mini-series of the drama has been commissioned by the BBC and will begin filming in the autumn.
However, Smith isn't currently sure she'll be able to take part in the miniseries because of theatre commitments.
"I really want to be, but I'm going to be doing A Midsummer Night's Dream »
The Gavin & Stacey star defies stereotypes with her range of award-winning roles on stage and screen
Sheridan Smith used to flog burgers to bikers from a van off the motorway up north. It was, so far, the only job for which she wasn't paid to perform, but that didn't stop her. "Do you want sauce with that, love?" she'd ask. It's easy to imagine Smith delivering that line, one eyebrow rising to a circumflex, lips pursing, more than a hint of cleavage and loads of cheek.
But those who suspected that the 31-year-old actor was a kind of northern Barbara Windsor capable of only blonde sass, and could cite as evidence a decade of knockabout performances in TV sitcoms (including Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps, Love Soup and Gavin & Stacey) and her award-winning turn as jilted-bimbo-turned-Harvard-hotshot in the stage musical Legally Blonde, have spent the past »

The Taviani brothers' account of a prison production of Julius Caesar marks a profoundly moving return to form
Before the emergence of the Coens, the Farrellys, the Hugheses and the Wachowskis, there were the Taviani brothers, Paolo and Vittorio, born in Pisa in respectively 1931 and 1929, the sons of a lawyer jailed for his anti-fascist activities. Coming out of Italian neorealism and the French new wave, adapting works by Tolstoy and Pirandello and much influenced by Brecht, they emerged in the late 60s. Theirs was a humanist cinema that reached out socially and chronologically, from an aristocrat disillusioned with revolution in early 19th-century Lombardy to the idealistic inhabitants of a Tuscan village standing up against the Nazis in 1944.
The Tavianis' finest film perhaps is Padre Padrone, the true story of a boy escaping from hard-scrabble peasant life in present-day Sardinia to be educated during his military service on the mainland. The »

Genial star of the sitcom The Good Life who impressed in a range of roles on stage
When he played Hamlet as a young man, Richard Briers, who has died aged 79 after suffering from a lung condition, said he was the first Prince of Denmark to give the audience half an hour in the pub afterwards. He was nothing if not quick. In fact, wrote the veteran critic Wa Darlington, he played Hamlet "like a demented typewriter". Briers, always the most modest and self-deprecating of actors, and the sweetest of men, relished the review, happy to claim a place in the light comedians' gallery of his knighted idols Charles Hawtrey, Gerald du Maurier and Noël Coward.
"People don't realise how good an actor Dickie Briers really is," said John Gielgud. This was probably because of his sunny, cheerful disposition and the rat-a-tat articulacy of his delivery. "You're a great farceur, »

(Baz Luhrmann, above.)
(This interview with Baz Luhrmann first appeared in Venice Magazine in June of 2001. I would later interview Baz for his opera production of "La Boheme" - check out that interview here. I seem to be in the minority, but I really enjoyed his Australia, a sprawling epic with unabashed sentimentality, reminiscent of many films from the old studio era.)
The Man Behind the Red Curtain
Director Baz Lurhmann Reveals the Secrets of Moulin Rouge
by Terry Keefe
The "Red Curtain" is a descriptive phrase coined by filmmaker Baz Luhrmann to describe his style of filmmaking, and it is apt - cinema which is also so highly theatrical that it feels like it was birthed from the stage. Think of the fevered final dance competition of his debut feature, Strictly Ballroom (1992) which was so colorful and high-octane that it almost seemed to be an animated film come to life. »

Julie Taymor's last theater experience was notably painful for basically everyone involved. Now she's putting all that Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark muck behind her with an old friend, William Shakespeare. Taymor will helm an Off-Broadway version of A Midsummer Night's Dream as the debut performance for Fort Greene's Theater for a New Audience this autumn. The woman who brought The Lion King to Broadway has previously directed The Taming of the Shrew, The Tempest, and Titus Andronicus, also adapting the latter two for the screen. »
