Down the creek...
2 April 2014 | by velijnSee all my reviews

If you've never seen a Jonathan Creek episode before you're left with a competent but not really exciting mystery that would have suited "Midsummer Murder" better than the original series.

If you're in for another pleasant meeting with Jonathan Creek you're in for a less pleasant experience. The originals series were a heady mix of outrageous crimes and a brilliant magician's solutions. Never mind the improbabilities, it was pure fun, something the present (2014) series utterly lacks. This series have no real mysteries, and certainly no magic.

Series 5 are three episodes on a single disk, also a sign on the wall; The Letters of Septimus No one, The Sinner and the Sandman, and The Curse of the Bronze Lamp.
