Editorial Reviews

“Smart, fast-paced fun” —The Globe and Mail (Canada)

As seen on public television

Based on novels by Maureen Jennings

“Victorian CSI” —The Wall Street Journal
“Clever and smart” —Deseret News (Salt Lake City, UT)

This acclaimed mystery series follows Detective William Murdoch (Yannick Bisson, Sue Thomas: F.B.Eye) in 1890s Toronto as he investigates the city’s most challenging cases and encounters the famous figures of his day. A brilliant detective with a knack for inventing new crime-solving technologies, Murdoch receives valuable assistance from beautiful pathologist Dr. Julia Ogden (Gemini®-winner Hélène Joy, Durham County), eager constable George Crabtree (Jonny Harris, Hatching, Matching & Dispatching), and his no-nonsense boss, Inspector Thomas Brackenreid (Thomas Craig, Where the Heart Is).

With 25 Gemini® nominations to its credit, this sharp, sophisticated drama delves into the fascinating roots of modern criminology with sly wit and endearing characters. Guest stars in Seasons 1-4 include Victor Garber (Alias), Simon Williams (Upstairs, Downstairs), Sarah Gadon (A Dangerous Method), Peter Keleghan (The Newsroom), Lisa Faulkner (Murder in Suburbia), and Nicholas Campbell (Da Vinci’s Inquest).

The Collection IS fantastic. SIX star worthy.

Murdoch Mysteries Collection is truly one of the finest Historical Crime TV series on TV, and it continues now with Season 5 on DVD, and season 6 is also a future reality. All wonderful news for fans of this show.
IF you have not seen any, this Collection is the way to buy at a lower price. Each of the seasons are available individually, but at a significant higher price than what this listing on Amazon is asking at present, being $111.99. Original retail was $239.96. Get them and watch in any order, but watch.

It's all about a Toronto detective from late 1890's who manages to use inventive forensic modes now common in today's crime solving venue. Historic aspects of the show are as good as period sets and costuming. Historical personalities occasionally cross paths with Murdoch (Yannick Bisson). Novel adaptations of Maureen Jennings' writing, this has become a show demanded for continuation. Always intriguing, always satisfying to the eyes and mind. An intellectual and entertaining hot fudge sundae, if they had those in 1895. Sprinkled overtop are bits of Victorian romance too. Humor as well, the series has it all.
Crabtree (Jonny Harris), Brackenreid (Thomas Craig), beautiful romantic Dr. Ogden (Helene Joy), & Higgins (Lachlan Murdoch).

SDH SUBTITLES on all 52 episodes. YES, 52, that's over 41 hours of fantastic entertainment, many guest stars, and perhaps the most unique period cop show ever produced. Better than Sherlock. DVD or Blu-Ray, content is great. Honest!

5.0 out of 5 stars My Favorite T.V. Drama Series Ever July 20, 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
When we signed up for Netflex I scanned all the titles and chose this one because I like the Victorian Era. What I didn't count on was how much I would enjoy this series. I asked my husband to watch it with me because we never agree on what to watch (he's into all those CSI type shows). We both loved it from the start. The set designs, the period costumes, the story lines, the early forensic investigations and most of all the personalities and interactions of all the main characters who work in a Toronto police station during the late 1800's. We couldn't wait until we watched the next episode. When I realized that Netflex would no longer show Murdoch Mysteries (they only aired Seasons 1-3 until early July of 2013), I searched Amazon and ordered this collection and Season 5. You can be certain that I will be looking forward to Season 6 (2012-2013) and Season 7 (2013-2014) . I only hope that Murdoch Mysteries continues for a long time. This program is produced by CBS in Canada; why doesn't CBS air this wonderful entertaining program in the United States instead of all the "reality? junk". I recommend this program to anyone with good taste, who longs for bygone days.

5.0 out of 5 stars On the bandwagon... August 20, 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I have to say, I jumped on this bandwagon along with everyone else who watches these shows. Great period background and the cast is perfect. I thought after watching the three movies that I wouldn't like a change in the lead character, but after watching two episodes, the change was seamless. I like the twists that always seem to pop up right at the end, you think you have the culprit figured out and wham! Totally turn in the road. I also like the storylines, using turn of the century new advancements in solving crime that only a few seem to accept readily. Fingerprinting, insect larvae age, etc., it all adds to the great entertainment. It seems like you sit down, start the show and before you know it, it's ending. Now that is both great story telling, and acting. If you are into mysteries and are looking for older settings and BBC can't air enough Masterpiece Theatre to quench your thirst, these are a definite buy--and a fantastic deal at this price. Entertainment at it's best!

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh how I LOVE this show! August 5, 2013
By Kelly
I absolutely adore Murdoch Mysteries! Nearly every episode is enchanting and clever, and the characters are like good friends (except for Julia, who is like a cheese grater on my nerves). The detectives use old-fashioned C.S.I. type investigative techniques (while making little jokes to the modern audience about it), and there are real-life characters such as H.G. Wells and Nikola Tesla on some of the episodes, since they were alive during the time period in which the show takes place. I gobbled up the first 5 seasons as if they were gourmet Fettucini Alfredo, and now I'm going to get my garlic bread (season 6). I can hardly wait to devour it!

Love the writing and how famous people of that time period are in the episodes, along with future inventions. Thank you for such smart and enjoyable viewing experience!!
I first discovered this series on Netflix and became hooked, watching episode after episode and couldn't wait for the next to come, then discovered the 4th season on Amazon and was able to watch instantly (thanks!!). Couldn't hardly wait for season 5, and decided I had to have this series in my collection.
You won't be disappointed!!!

I enjoy watching the videos in chronological order rather than watching old out of sequence series on TV.
The downside is that the video is darker then on TV.
