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.
The windmill that Jonathan Creek lives in is called King's Mill or Vincent's Mill and was built in 1879 in the town of Shipley, West Sussex, around 6 or 7 miles South of Horsham, England. It was once owned by the writer Hilaire Belloc - a Frenchman with English citizenship. At various times throughout its history it was open to the public, but has been closed since July 2009.
I just remember saying that I thought he was a bit of a prick... ly sort of gentleman.
The first series of "Jonathan Creek" was re-cut for broadcast in countries outside of the U.K. The first episode, "The Wrestler's Tomb" (originally 90 minutes) was divided into two one-hour parts for commercial television, and the remaining four episodes were edited down from 60 minutes to 50 minutes each.
