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!

Read short single episode synopsis on the individual season listings.
Just click on the title and a link is provided.

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.

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!

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!

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!!!

What a fun and wonderful show. I picked this up for two reasons the many 5 star reviews and the great bluray price. So even though I had never seen this show I gave it a try and can tell you, I was not dissappointed.
The show is well put together and the actors go through the episodes with just the right amount of humor and drama. The show is a police show but takes a lot from Sherlock Holmes right down to having Conan Doyle show up. I can tell you this was money well spent and time watching it is also well spent.
Never heard of most of the cast before but I hope they stay going with this show for years to come. I feel safe in recommending this show for those who like police shows well acted and written and are not bothered that it also has it's light moments.

Too bad we can't get this in America (what exactly is wrong with BBC America?) I first saw a few episodes of this series while on vacation in Vancouver, B.C., and fell in love with the actors, the settings, and the stories. It is billed as a "1890s CSI." Good description: innovative and creative. You have to get this boxed set and start with Season One, Episode One, and follow it through in order to fully appreciate the excellent story lines and characters. And Amazon's price is far better than anywhere else you can get it! Don't miss out if you love quality mystery!

Very enjoyable. I do not like shows where everyone is always angry or are just troubled souls. Too many mystery series are too negative. While murder and other dark topics are covered and the main characters have to fight their own demons in this series, hopefulness and a positive spirit remain and there is even humor and wit thrown into the mix.

Using discoveries and inventions from that time period to solve crimes, and set in the context of that period's political and cultural issues make for interesting stories.

I have always been a fan of mysteries and cop dramas as well as period dramas. This show combines all those aspects and includes a detective who's main quirk is his intelligence and inventiveness. The speed (or lack thereof) of the Victorian romance is a definite change of pace from the many hello-hop-in-bed shows available today. The entire family can watch together and enjoy.

Love the stories and all the actors but the dvd discs were horrible, glitches in running, repeat episodes on disc 2 and 3, missing some episodes, and episodes not in order. Had to send collection back. Will try again from another distributer.. Quality control problems.
