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.
Several allusions are made to characters and locations from DC Comics. A famous magician who was once known as the "Black Canary" (a popular DC hero). A mansion called "Metropolis" (the city where Superman lives). And another estate called "Green Lanterns" (several DC heroes have used this name).
If you'd missed, he would have killed me!
Jonathan Creek: I did miss. I was aiming for his balls.
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.
