Sheridan Smith back in Jonathan Creek

The quirky detective drama Jonathan Creek is to return to BBC for a 90 minute Easter special next year with Alan Davies again playing the title role and Sheridan Smith back as his sidekick Joey Ross

The Clue of the Servant’s Thumb is written by series creator David Renwick and will see Creek and Joey  drawn into a complex case involving a secret society, supernatural events at a girls’ boarding school and the disappearance of a body in front of three witnesses.

Alan Davies says: “The new story has more than the usual amount of twists and surprises, and I'm very much looking forward to sleuthing again. I can't wait to join Sheridan Smith on set again; we're very lucky to have her. It's nearly 17 years since I first auditioned for the part; the duffle coat is always on standby, even if the periods of duffle-hibernation are quite long these days”.

The most recent episode of Jonathan Creek aired on BBC1 in April 2010 and was seen by 6.62 million viewers.
