Editorial Reviews

"Excellent adventure" --Midwest Book Review

As seen on public television
Based on novels by Maureen Jennings

"Truly outstanding" --The Fort Bend/Southwest Star
"Clever and smart" --Deseret News

Winner of three Gemini® Awards, this sassy-smart Victorian-era whodunit stars Yannick Bisson (Sue Thomas: F.B.Eye) as Detective William Murdoch, a police investigator who employs emerging science to solve Toronto’s most dreadful murders. He experiments with ballistics, psychological profiling, and other newly developed techniques, despite the doubts of his tradition-bound boss (Thomas Craig, Where the Heart Is). Together with a beautiful pathologist (Gemini®-winner Hélène Joy, Durham County) and an able protégé (Jonny Harris, Hatching, Matching & Dispatching), Murdoch encounters some of the era’s most famous--and infamous--figures, from Buffalo Bill Cody to Jack the Ripper.

Guest stars include Nicholas Campbell (Da Vinci’s Inquest, Cinderella Man), Sarah Strange (Men in Trees), and Alastair Mackenzie (Monarch of the Glen).

Season 2 nominated for six Gemini® Awards, including best writing and best supporting actor

5.0 out of 5 stars AWARD-WINNING VICTORIAN CRIME & ROMANCE April 1, 2010
More 1890s Toronto cop investigation than romance, since Det. Murdoch is so romantically bashful. Comedy, mystery, adventure and romance unite perfectly in a Victorian setting. This is Victorian murder investigations with contemporary evidence gathering techniques. Murdoch (Yannick Bisson) is a century ahead of his forensic sleuthing counterparts. Dr. Ogden (Helene Joy) is the gorgeous pathologist in the forensics search--the morgue maiden. Victorian 'sparks' happen between Murdoch and Dr.O, but at he cautious, delicate, discretionary Victorian rate. Romantic chemistry cleverly woven into murder investigations. Insp. Brackenreid (Thomas Craig) ex-army & boss, plus Crabtree (Jonny Harris) ambitious right-hand man, are back in every episode. 4 TV stars who make this a 5-star Series. Also plenty of guest stars.

All episodes are police investigations with interesting new technology or science helping find clues. Marvelously inventive in plot and beautiful to view it the realistic Victorian era. Perfection in sets, costumes, and props. It's no wonder it is award grabbing and still continues currently with new adventures on TV. This series is the 2009 season, at DVD release less than a year past original airing.

It is dreadful, dastardly, murder situations, with some violence and blood (especially in Dr.O's morgue clue-gathering scenes), and multiple plot episodes. Highly recommended for the mystery, crime, and even Victorian romance fans.

Bonus includes SDH SUBTITLES, behind the scenes, character bios, 4 cast filmographies, 7 Murdoch (Maureen Jennings) novels (1997-2007), and a PDF on props.

5.0 out of 5 stars A GREAT SERIES May 31, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The best explanation I've heard for this show is CSI: Steampunk. It is a mystery series with an earnest detective and his cohorts set in Victorian era Toronto. Certainly William Murdoch is as convoluted and troubled a character as Gil Grissom ever was and we follow him as he uses his particular genius to solve crimes with what is cutting edge science in his time. Some of the history and science is fuzzy around the edges, but not so that it would put an average viewer off the show. I am particularly sensitive to "magic bullet" solutions and I admire the show for keeping a check on the "ahead of his time" genius of Murdoch for the most part. As a forensic science series it is unique, in that it doesn't present us with any new ideas. Instead, it offers historic perspectives on the discovery or use of modern methods. I have found myself cringing as, for example, Dr. Ogden uses a perfectly acceptable method in her time that we now know as pure poison. Or grinning as Murdoch dismisses as outlandish some concept we modern folk accept as commonplace.

This is also a show that does Unresolved Sexual Tension (UST) right! At least, so far, it doesn't overwork the idea of UST to the point where the viewer is encouraged to go watch something else. Detective Murdoch has a romantic interest in the police pathologist, Dr. Julia Ogden, however, they face the many very real restrictions of their time. And William Murdoch's religion (he is Catholic) features prominently in the show, as it colors his views on romance. These real obstacles are fascinating to explore and make for a very refreshing change from the manufactured obstacles that are used to create UST in so many television series today. Here there is relationship dysfunction, but it is believable.

5.0 out of 5 stars MURDOCK IS SOME ENJOYABLE TELEVISION May 13, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This Canadian television series is a most enjoyable program to watch. I enjoyed Season One so much that I eagerly purchased Season two and I have not been disappointed. The episodes are most interesting, well directed and acted very well by all. I really like this series and look forward to its season three (3).

Murdock is an award winning (according to the notes on the cover) "who done-it" series set in Victorian Toronto when the emerging science of "detective sleuthing" was in its infancy--little or no use of finger printing (finger marks as it was called) little or no use of ballistics, ultra-violet light to detect traces of blood, etc. But the lack of the use of "sleuthing techniques" does not stop the series hero and its lead William Murdock wonderfully played by Yannick Bisson who plays the detective that solves some dastardly murders with his charm, good looks and very "forward thinking" use of some of the emerging investigative science much to the objections of his boss played greatly by Thomas Craig. There is also a "love interest". Murdock who is very shy is besotted by the pathologist acted by Helen Joy. She adds just the right amount of humor (the character calls it "morgue humor"). While helping Murdock solve the nasty deeds through her own sleuthing in the morgue.

If you want to see some good T.V. while guessing "who done-it", buy this season two of this series because it will keep you highly entertained.

By the way, Season Two runs about 598 minutes on 4 DVDs. The picture and sound quality are great!

5.0 out of 5 stars Cross between western and murder mystery
A little bit of romance, a lot of murder and cutting edge technology for the 1880s, Murdoch Mysteries offers a delightful and entertaining look into the beginnings of forensics.
