Titled Daemons’ Roost, the one-off special sees Jonathan Creek investigate when veteran horror film director Nathan Clore, who has recently taken up resident in haunted house Daemons’ Roost, suffers a debilitating stroke, just as he was to reveal the truth to his stepdaughter Alison about what happened to her family. As the story unfolds with ever more sinister twists and turns, the gruesome rituals that were once enacted in the dungeon of Daemons’ Roost are frighteningly revived with horrifying consequences.

The one-off special was penned by David Renwick and is being produced by BBC Studios. Rosemary McGowan is the producer, while Cradle To Grave helmer Sandy Johnson is the director.
