Doctor Who Vs. Jonathan Creek, Series 4

Actors Alan Davies, Julia Sawalha and Stuart
Milligan all returned (as titular sleuth Creek, 
Carla Borrego and Adam Klaus) for the fourth 
full season of this BBC mystery drama - they
were joined by Adrian Edmondson (Brendan Baxter). 
Again produced by Verity Lambert, the series 
was split into two parts, almost year apart. Episodes one to three were screened in March 2003, and the remaining three serials then
broadcast in February 2004. 
The programme returned for three further 
specials (in 2009, 2010 and 2013), a fifth, 
three-part series aired in early 2014, and 
a new festive story, Daemons' Roost, was
shown last month.
