I've watched Jonathan Creek since it began in 1997, it's well written and the actors manage to successfully balance both drama and comedy. Alan Davies plays the part well, as does Caroline Quentin and later on in the programs history Julia Sawalha. The show has had appearances from some very well known actors and other Comedians in the UK, like Peter Davison, Colin Baker, Maureen Lipman, Jack Dee, Rik Mayal and Adrian Edmonson. David Renwick uses similar humour to the Sitcom 'One Foot in the Grave' (which he also created). The comedy in Creek is usually about the normal things that occur in life that can turn out to be completely stupid in practice. Definitely worthy of another series.
