A nifty locked room murder where by Stephen’s first wife, who had been receiving death threats, is finally told she will die in her bedroom that night.At the centre of this mundanity is Creek himself, flannel-shirted and unflappable, going about sleuthing the way the rest of us go about getting the bus to work. There is also a strong sense that the show is consciously alluding to its past throughout the episode. However, the postmortem reveals that she had already been dead for several hours, and there are no other footprints around the body despite the husband seeing someone talking to her and fleeing before she pulled the trigger. Jonathan and Maddy are prompted to investigate by the dead woman's daughter – an old flame of Jonathan's – along with the debonair Detective Inspector Gideon Pryke, the police officer officially in charge of the case. Definitely some weaknesses but overall, a strong entry and, if it is the final one, then a decent send off with a mild but well-earned valedictory feeling.

I think your point about the essential simplicity of the solutions it is what I liked and what made me feel, despite the difficulties, that I was getting a shot of classic Renwick. But god help me, this is still Jonathan Creek, a drama that began so long ago that it feels antiquated compared to current mystery/crime dramas, and yet I still have time for it, even if it’s not time well spent. Objects like the thrice stolen 90’s answer phone tape in The Problem at Gallows Gate (1998), the clunky PC monitors of episodes like The House of Monkeys (1997) and the sharp glass shelf and modern book titles of the ‘Striped Unicorn Affair’ embed the mysteries in the moment, making them ‘of the time’.After an awkward break-up some months ago, Jonathan and Carla – now married to the producer of a Crimewatch-like television show – unite to investigate a serial killer who wears a Davy Crockett hat and kills people named after flowers. As Christmas Specials go it’s no ‘Black Canary’ or ‘Satan’s Chimney’, but it isn’t a complete turkey either. Harry Potter star Warwick Davis joins the cast of the new episode, written by David Renwick and directed by Sandy Johnson. Last time he was in a truly life-threatening scenario he managed to do a quality bit of escapology by throwing a playing card.
