Alan Davies: Jonathan Creek not defeated by snow

After collecting QI's award for Best Comedy Panel Show, the comedian and actor revealed that as far as the one-off special of Jonathan Creek is concerned... the show must go on!

Actor Alan Davies has revealed that the recent snow has put a dampner on filming of the one-off special return of Jonathan Creek, but that they’re still aiming for an Easter air date.


“We’ve lost a couple day’s filming,” he said backstage after collecting the award for Best Comedy Panel Show for QI. “I have to go there early tomorrow, instead of wielding this around some seedy night club!”

He kept very tight lipped about any details about the show, only saying cheekily, “There’s a dead body in a room.”

The new story, entitled The Clue of the Savant’s Thumb, will also see the return of Sheridan Smith as fellow investigator Joey Ross. Creek and Joey will be drawn into a complex case involving a secret society, seemingly supernatural events at a girls’ boarding school, and the miraculous disappearance of a body in front of three witnesses.


The most recent episode of Jonathan Creek, which aired in April 2010, was seen by 6.62 million viewers when it was broadcast on BBC1.
