Editorial Reviews

Forensic sleuthing in the age of invention.

“A terrific procedural police drama” —The Philadelphia Inquirer

Broadcast as The Artful Detective on Ovation
Based on novels by Maureen Jennings

“So deftly done, it’s a little masterpiece of tone and style.” —The Globe and Mail (Canada)

At the dawn of the 20th century, Detective William Murdoch (Yannick Bisson, Sue Thomas: F.B.Eye) solves Toronto’s trickiest cases with scientific insight and ingenuity in this award-winning mystery series. From flying early aircraft to infiltrating nudist communities, consulting with Sir Arthur Conan Doyle to helping a young Winston Churchill, Murdoch has always been a man ahead of his time. In Season 6, he also confronts legal and social challenges to be with his love, pathologist-turned-psychiatrist Dr. Julia Ogden (Gemini® winner Hélène Joy, Durham County). Meanwhile, Constable Crabtree (Jonny Harris, Hatching, Matching & Dispatching) gains confidence as a policeman and a suitor to fetching coroner Dr. Emily Grace (Georgina Reilly, The L.A. Complex).

Guest stars include Peter Keleghan (The Red Green Show), Thomas Howes (Downton Abbey), Geraint Wyn Davies (24, Slings & Arrows), Matthew Bennett (Battlestar Galactica), Paula Brancati (Degrassi: The Next Generation, Being Erica), and Sheila McCarthy (Little Mosque on the Prairie).

Episode 5 contains mild nudity.

5.0 out of 5 stars the Eyes of Murdoch November 3, 2013
Format:DVD
I 'discovered' this series about 8 months ago and can not get enough of it. The stars of this program, although unknown to most Americans are well known and appreciated in Canada, where this series originated and was filmed, for the most part. The often humorous references to the beginnings of many inventions that Murdoch either builds or works with the inventors on, are wonderful. Yannick Bisson plays Murdoch and heads a terrific cast. All kinds of speech accents flourish throughout the dialogue since many of the men and women who lived in Toronto at that time were immigrants from 'across the pond' and are in fact in real life. The story lines always are full of tongue in cheek humor, and subplots as these characters build not only relationships with one another, but with the viewer. I feel like I know these folks in real life, and with few exceptions, would love having them as neighbors. One of the things I like most is the constant politeness of the speech used, as well as what my Grandma called 'common courtesy'. Men are men and women suffer greatly, too many childbirths, corsets, long gowns and petticoats in summer, all the things that humanity saddled itself with in the name of fashion and many things that society still struggles with today. Since 'Dr. Ogden", the female lead is a bit of a crusader, these are topics that often cause her to be in 'hot water' with the establishment and are part of the aformentioned subplots now and then. I hope season 7 will be released soon, but international law between Canada and the US prevent CBC (the broadcasting company that has taken over production and airing of the series) from showing it as a currently running program in America. I am hoping PBS will pick it up again, but if not, we will all have to wait til summer I imagine. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Season 6 is Superior FUN 19th century historical crime September 20, 2013
Format:DVD
Awesome period sets & costumes. Realistically gritty. Multiple plots in an 1899 Victorian Canada historical suspense & crime drama. Includes fictional unveiling of then-new inventions. Murdoch's path often crosses an historic personality. Charming entertainment amidst suspense.
Older episodes are combined in a box catch-up set.
Murdoch Mysteries Collection: Seasons 1-4
Season 6 views a stand-alone, but you DO WANT every episode.

Yannick Bisson's leading role is rejoined with his boss, Brackenreid (Thomas Craig), Crabtree (Jonny Harris), Dr. Ogden (Helen Joy), Higgins (Lachlan Murdoch), & sexy Dr. Grace (Georgina Reilly).

SDH SUBTITLES for all episodes.
- 1: Murdoch Air
Murdoch takes another look at flying machines after an unusual accident. See Peter Stebbings.
- 2: Winston's Lost Night
Winston Churchill (Thomas Howes- Downton Abbey) can't be a murderer, can he?
- 3: Murdoch on the Corner
Murdoch stakes out a crime scene and while Crabtree tries undercover work.
- 4: A Study in Sherlock
Sherlock Holmes (Andrew Gower- Monroe) helps with clues. Murdoch checks out Holmes and the clues.
- 5: Murdoch Au Naturel
A body from a nearby nudist colony. Expect Crabtree to be embarrassed with this `undercover' inquiry. A divorce? Who? The reason for DVD's box nudity warning.
- 6: Murdoch and the Cloud of Doom
Film & a gas threat sends Murdoch to a chemist for help in saving Toronto.
- 7: The Ghost of Queen's Park
Crabtree tries to help when ghosts could be the culprit. Boo!
- 8: Murdoch in Ladies Wear
Murder in an elevator shaft has it's ups and downs as Murdoch investigates.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, but buy it anyway! December 28, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have been a fan of this show since the beginning. I eagerly awaited the release of season 6, and was really let down. First off let me say this, if you are a fan of the show by all means get this and watch it. It is not bad, it is just seriously lacking in the original chemistry of the characters. All of them! I don't know why they even bothered with Julia, they should have just written her out of the show. She walks through her lines, and her appearance is so changed. The new medical examiner that started a couple seasons back far exceeds her role. She is wonderful. Julia basically comes back as a love interest, and is not in the same role that endeared her to me. Just being Julia is not enough to warrent her being in the show. JMHO. Why they bleached her hair this awful shade that matches her complexion I will never know. The love between Murdoch and Julia doesn't have the desire and tension it had in the previous series. All that aside, the main problem is the scripts. They are predictible, almost unbelievable at times. The ideas start out unique, but soon fade into silliness or just a walk though. Nothing bad, nothing spectacular either. Just so so.
The last episode with Julia being convicted of murder was just unreal and stupid. The sets were lacking and so was authenticity.
I would still buy this DVD and watch it, because I feel dedicated to do so, and I will get the new one when it comes out. I just hope they repair the characters, and get better writers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Forensic Detection In 19th Century Canada November 24, 2013
Format:DVD
I recently came across The Murdoch Mysteries after seeing Geraint Wyn Davies portray Sir Arthur Conan Doyle in an episode from the first season. With two of my favorites so combined, I had to look further into this very intriguing historical crime drama. To date, I have watched most of the series, and while I was lukewarm about some of the earlier episodes, did stick with it and now find the scripting and plots to be stronger with each ensuing season. Instead of losing steam, Murdoch Mysteries is gaining it, not only in terms of solid story lines but in the development of the characters, who are fleshed out and exude true personality. Speaking of which, Dr Ogden fans should find she sparkles better than ever here.

Never mind there are innumerable crime dramas to choose from, with most of them being pale intimations or knock-offs so that despite being an avid mystery reader, I rarely watch any of them. There is nothing cliched or trite about Murdoch Mysteries. It offers something distinctly different, an alternative to other dramas while retaining some of the more gritty aspects - without falling into the gimmicky ploy for ratings trap of excessive swearing, violence or over-hyping of sex. It stands on its own merits, and not only did series six bring back one of my favorite actors playing a favorite author, it has proven a very welcomed change of pace.
