Every great Jonathan Creek episode consists of three parts or acts: The Effect, The Method, and The Reveal. There’s also a fair amount of grot, things that really shouldn’t be said anymore, and one of television’s most enduring romances.
Join Gav Murphy and Daniel Krupa as they break down all 32 episodes of Jonathan Creek, the classic British TV show about a magician’s assistant who solves impossible crimes, which they watched religiously as kids (and now, as adults).
Up The Creek is the definitive Jonathan Creek companion.

Truly magical and I don’t mean wizardly
I was an eight years old the first time I glimpsed a scene from Jonathan Creek. Looking over the stair banister at my grandma’s house in the Lake District. I remember bricking it at seeing someone on the screen bricking themselves up inside a bomb shelter. Since then, I had always been fascinated by the show but never got around to really sinking my teeth into it, bar the re-runs on tele. Thanks to the boys at RKG, I get to watch the series along with some mates, graph paper in hand and a Corona at the ready.
This podcast is truly brilliant and was everything I hoping for. Journey into the wonder of magic and mystery, filled with nostalgia, hilarity, and a whole lot of GROT. It’s a must listen! and if you’re new to RKG, welcome Micheals! You’re in for a wild ride.
Confident this will be absolutely amazing!
