Storyline

Polly and Jonathan move into her father's house in the country, a move which begins badly when Jonathan accidentally frees two burglars. Polly attends a parish council meeting where they learn that local lottery winner and community benefactor Leonard Corbyn has been arrested for indecent offences and later Jonathan visits grumpy old psychic Eric Ipswich who has a stroke and is hospitalized. Whilst helping Polly's friend Alison Chater and her vicar husband, the Creeks are amazed to find Corbyn's winning lottery numbers written on a wall by Ipswich some half a century earlier. As Polly starts to have nightmares about childhood bogey-man the Sandman, the parish magazine declares sightings of a sinister nocturnal beast on the prowl. Written by don @ minifie-1

What has happened!?
21 April 2014 | by garybageSee all my reviews

Why oh why have they kept Jonathan's wife in the series, she adds absolutely nothing as far as character development or storyline, has absolutely no personality, no warmth, no humour, etc, etc. Bring back Sheridan Smith or Caroline Quentin who actually added to the storyline. Whereas in the past series Jonathan's sidekick actually gave some humour to the storyline the wife character is dry, abrasive, badly portrayed and adds absolutely nothing. The actress is either very good at playing an annoying character or actually is just annoying. The stories themselves are OK, but even the character of Jonathan Creek seems to realise that he's made a big big mistake with his wife! Get a divorce quickly for the sake of the series.
