Why Maddy Magellan is a comedy icon

I'm an absolute sucker for murder mysteries, combine it with my other love comedy and I am in. Which is why you won't be surprised to learn that I was (and am) a massive Jonathan Creek fan. Like, one Christmas I got a Jonathan Creek book and... I was not mad. The reason for this fandom was Caroline Quentin's character Maddy Magellan.

Bloody good fun.
