This is an AWESOME series! Canadian TV has produced a wonderful murder mystery series that takes place in Victorian times, presenting social issues and lots and lots of early scientific methods for solving crimes. The actors in this series account for one of the best ensemble casts that I've ever seen. Our entire family views this series, over and over again, and we sincerely hope that it does not see cancellation for many years to come!

Murdoch Mysteries is a very enjoyable 'period piece' Television series (1890's Toronto). There's a little history, a little humor, a little romance, a little scientific discovery (late 1890's style) and lots of Mystery. Yannick Bisson (Detective Murdoch), Thomas Craig (his boss, Inspector Brackenreid), Jonny Harris (Murdoch's assistant and partner Constable George Crabtree) and Hélène Joy ( the coroner and love interest... Doctor Julia Ogden) are endearing characters and perfectly cast for their rolls.

We came rather late to this series.... and have found 'Murdoch' to be one of the 'best.' It's right up there with Poirot, Midsomer, Foyle's War, to name just a few. We've typically had to head across the Atlantic to BBC/ITV for good mystery TV. Who knew that our neighbors to the North were doing such a stellar job with this series? Highly recommended...

I was introduced to Murdoch Mysteries through my Amazon Prime account. I absolutely fell in love with the series and its characters. Set in Victorian Canada, the TV show revolves around 4 main characters and their ability to work together to solve murder mysteries. The program is a little whimsical, a bit humorous, and of course has a little romance, too; something for the whole family to enjoy. I highly recommend it!

Continued awesome period sets & costumes. Realistically gritty. Multiple plots.
1899 Victorian Canada historical suspense & crime drama. Enjoy blissfulness in fictional revealing of significant inventions. Murdoch's paths cross with some legendary greats. All part of the charm and entertainment amidst suspense. If you are new to Murdoch, catch yourself up with the new set:
Murdoch Mysteries Collection: Seasons 1-4.
You can view season 5 as a stand-alone season, but trust me, you DO WANT every episodes.

Yannick Bisson's leading Murdoch role is rejoined with his boss, Brackenreid (Thomas Craig), Crabtree (Jonny Harris), in all episodes; and Dr. Ogden (Helen Joy) in most episodes. Higgins (Lachlan Murdoch) misses only one. A bright new star in coroner Dr. Grace (Georgina Reilly). Her saucy flair turns Crabtree's eye. Mine too!

SDH SUBTITLES for all 13 episodes, each near 50 min.
Season 5 (2012) episode synopses--without spoilers--if you like detail.
1 Murdoch of the Klondike --Dawson City gold fever dwindles, Murdoch tries forgetting unrequited love. He's befriended by Jack (Aaron Ashmore). In Toronto newly promoted Chief Constable Giles (Nigel Bennett) gets pushy. Can Murdoch clear Elizabeth (Jill Halfpenny) of murder?

2 Back and to the Left -An Irish Catholic suspected of a murder in a failed Protestant Mayor parade assassination. Murdoch & Dr. Ogden work closely--too close. Constabulary confiscates cameras and considers bullet trajectories (Reminiscent of JFKennedy & Dallas).

3 Evil Eye of Egypt --Ultraviolet light reveals a clue to deaths linked to Egyptian antiquities.

Having been a fan of this series for years, I was very disappointed to hear that it was canceled after the fourth season. I was also disappointed in the fourth season, especially the ending. But new money was found and the original actors returned so I bought this fifth season on faith. I am really impressed. They have returned to the elements that set this series apart from all the others - an emphasis on the mysteries and early forensic technology, clever writing, humor and solid characters you care about. Thank you, Canada, for listening to your fan base.

I am addicted to Murdock, and impatiently waited for this series 5. I was disappointed that Julia was rarely on. I had decided not to buy the next season until the very end when Julia came back. Now I am looking forward to season 6.

Love this series and it is smartly written, with characters you'll love. We would watch episode after episode because you get hooked on the characters and want to know what happens to them. I enjoyed having Edison, Telsa and many other famous inventors and personalities injected into the stories.
