ABC’s Castle is much more than the obvious: a dramedy police procedural with shades of Sam Spade. It’s an imaginative universe of characters who create characters who cross over TV, novels, and graphic novels. On TV, writer Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion) starts working with the NYPD when into his life walks Det. Kate Beckett (Stana Katic). He’s inspired to write a series of “Nikki Heat” novels based on Beckett and her “real” squad, and so continues to work cases with them. Castle’s three Nikki Heat books have all been on the RL New York Times best-seller list, an unusual achievement for  a TV character. The center of the series is the charisma between Castle and Beckett—thus-far UST with playful “good cop/no cop” humor and genuine emotion—wrapped around complex mystery plots in a stylized New York.
