Jonathan Creek series 5 trailer releasedBookmark and Share

Tuesday, 18 February 2014 - Reported by John Bowman
The BBC has released a trailer for the new series of Jonathan Creek.

The 30-second promo sees Creek - having relinquished his windmill home now that he's married - scathingly comparing the new community in which he lives to Twin Peaks.


As previously reported, series 5 starts on BBC One on Friday 28th February at 9pm with The Letters of Septimus Noone. A clip from the episode has been made available on the Radio Times website, in which the BBC One series Sherlock is parodied.

The second episode of the three-episode run is entitled The Sinner and the Sandman. Its broadcast date and time are yet to be confirmed.
In The Sinner and the Sandman, a retired local psychic inadvertently makes the most amazing and impossible prediction of his career.

As Creek and Polly strive to settle into rural life, they find their apparently serene country village is riddled with all manner of strange and disturbing undercurrents . . .

Trouble is already brewing in the nearby community centre - recently reopened after a major facelift - where a sordid sex scandal is about to break, casting a pall of gloom over the celebrations.

And at the vicarage, the arrival of a new baby is overshadowed by tales of a "weird hump-backed beast" that has been seen prowling in the garden by night and foraging through the rubbish bags for foodstuffs.

Even the Creek residence is struck by misfortune, as the prospect of a plague of deadly Japanese knotweed threatens to trigger widescale panic throughout the village. And after a whole slew of other unfortunate events, there are fears that some strange parochial apocalypse is about to dawn.

Jonathan Creek, meanwhile, finds himself paying a charitable call on the eccentric Mr Eric Ipswich - aka "The Amazing Astrodamus" - an ancient and reclusive former psychic magician who will shortly bring the village to a standstill by pulling off the most baffling act of clairvoyance in history.

And what is behind the macabre recurring dream that continues to haunt Creek's wife Polly, in which the kindly children's nursery character The Sandman is transformed into a dark and chilling figure of evil?
Creek is played by Alan Davies, and Polly by Sarah Alexander.
