Wonderful.
1 May 2020 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

Mother Redcap is one of the best. It's no wonder fans love this episode, it truly is Jonathan Creek at its absolute best. It's funny, intriguing, and wonderfully macabre, it's so intricate, but all hangs together so well.

Nicola Walker does a terrific job, and deserves the praise, but I just love Brian Murphy here, he combines funny and tragic wonderfully well.

There are clues to be had, unlike in many if the episodes, so you can work it out if you follow closely. The humour mostly comes from Marcus Gilbert, and his character's alternative way of living, I never got any he wasn't a more visible on screen actors he's great.

Loved it, 9/10.
