About this deal

Roosevelt, a Marx Brothers video and a drawer full of socks have to do with the solution to the mystery. Or perhaps his wife Polly, and her understandable aversion to hideous deaths, will persuade him to pass up the challenge - especially as there's already a psychopathic killer on her husband's trail, with a score to settle.

When his first wife Imelda was found poisoned to death in a bizarre locked room case it was only through the deductive talents of Jonathan Creek that the puzzle was eventually solved. He has a stroke between writing to her and her arrival and is unable to speak or move, so will not be able to tell her anything.

Later, a policewoman is strangled in a school gym from which the killer again had no means of escape. The more ‘phoney’ wordplay throughout the episode was a stretch, and there seemed to be a lot of padded out extra twists and turns that, although tied together by Renwick, could have been left behind. They have stood the test of time (late 90s to early 00s) well and remain entertaining with some great one liners.

However, days before her arrival Clore suffers a debilitating stroke, rendering him paralysed and unable to communicate the truth Alison has hoped to learn. Legend says that Daemons' Roost was the home of sorcerer Jacob Surtees, but the place is now the abode of horror film director Nathan Clore.V nyfb rawblrq gung gur vavgvny pnfr juvpu oevatf uvz gb Qnrzbaf Ebbfg gheaf bhg gb or fbzrguvat bs n erq ureevat, ng yrnfg va grezf bs ubj gur znggre unq vavgvnyyl nccrnerq gb uvz. Although still incredibly frustrating, it does at least allow Sarah Alexander’s character – whilst still unnecessarily meddling, determined that Creek avoid any case-solving – to be far less cynical and slightly expanded from the one-dimensional character of previous instalments. And the frequently tiresome husband and wife banter between Creek and his wife Polly (Sarah Alexander) which I have mentioned before.
