Alan Davies is set to return as Jonathan Creek in a new special, marking the show’s 20th anniversary.
“It’s 20 years since the first series. 20 years! It’s unbelievable. I’ll try and drop a few pounds so I’m not fat Creek,” he said.
The series last aired in 2014 when the BBC made a short three-part series introducing Sarah Alexander as Jonathan’s new wife Polly. The character will reportedly be returning alongside Jonathan for the new special.
Noting how long the show has lasted, Davies added: “It’s a tribute to [creator] David Renwick. He obeys all the classic rules of classic television and employs them to his benefit – so the show is perfect television.”
