Jonathan Creek returns to the BBC in February with a new 3-part series and according to Alan Davies the opening episode is a "piss take" of Sherlock!!!

The new mystery features a criminology student who believes he has powers of deduction that rival Sherlock Holmes, but he is sorely mistaken as all his deductions are way off the mark. The episode also mimics Sherlock's camera angles and close ups.

In an interview with the Radio Times, Alan Davis said that even though he's a fan of the Benedict Cumberbatch portrayal of Sherlock, Jonathan Creek writer David Renwick is more partial to the original Sir Arthur Conan Doyle books.

"He will never watch Sherlock and say all the fast cutting... and so on and say we should do that. He will watch that and take the piss out of that.", said Davis, "I don’t know what Benedict Cumberbatch would make of it. He is probably far too busy as a Hollywood superstar."

Well I guess they do say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. We shall see when Jonathan Creek returns to BBC1 next month.
