“Why don’t we do Jonathan Creek?”

Friday, August 24, 2007 by

Alan Davies has been doing the rounds to publicise the imminent return of QI. Now, that’s a great show, but when I got my 20 minutes or so with him, I was intent on bringing the conversation round to Jonathan Creek. More precisely – would it ever come back?

Here’s what he said …

It never comes up. I mean the ball’s entirely in David Renwick’s court. After Caroline Quentin left the show, Julia Sawalha came in and we did several episodes. I don’t know if either Julia or Caroline would want to do it again. I don’t honestly know. I don’t know if David wants to. I would do it again! [Laughs]. 

Sometimes I feel like I’m the only person left, going, “Jonathan Creek was great! Why don’t we doJonathan Creek?”. I spend all my time waiting for scripts, reading scripts, or trying to write my own scripts – but nothing’s ever as good … If we ever did it again, I think it would probably be David writing a one-off.

Well, even that would do me. Come on, Mr Renwick, why don’t you do Jonathan Creek?
