The turn-of-the-century time period is mined for all the interesting topics of the day, especially through Murdoch's interest in using science to help solve crimes.

UPDATE: This set is also becoming available in the Murdoch Mysteries Collection: Seasons 1-4 [Blu-ray] & regular DVD set making it a great buy if you need all 4 seasons. And season 5 is now available for ordering. Season 6 is airing, and will be DVD-available later.

Award gathering 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 1897. Sprinkled overtop is bits of Victorian romance too.
Crabtree (Jonny Harris) returns as does Brackenreid (Thomas Craig), beautiful romantic Dr. Ogden (Helene Joy), & Higgins (Lachlan Murdoch).

SDH SUBTITLES on 13 new episodes, about 10 hrs plus bonus.
____1: All Tattered and Torn
Dismembered body in concrete, like nuts in a brownie, is an ugly case to solve. Replacement pathologist Dr. Francis, Brackenreid's choice, is no Dr. Ogden. Clues lead to accomplices. Photo shopped? Victor Garber guest star.
____2: Kommando
Toronto Canada soldier death, a hanging, head torqued, and a secret emerges. The constabulary fights both the Brit & Canadian army, but cools differences of Murdoch and Dr. Francis.
____3: Buffalo Shuffle --directed by Yannick Bisson
Murdoch has a rendezvous with sweetheart Julia, in Buffalo. A child death to address.

The Murdoch Mysteries take today's crime scene investigation shows and push them back to the 1890s. But if you think the investigative methods used then were all very primitive, think again. Detective William Murdoch and his cohorts on the Toronto Constabulary (police force) employ "finger marks" (fingerprinting), dye on paper money to catch a bank robber, phone tapping, autopsies and other techniques to catch killers. Murdoch isn't afraid to push the envelope, even building contraptions to aid in his detecting work. Working alongside him is coroner Dr. Julia Ogden, Murdoch's former lover who now is seemingly out of reach. You'll see plenty of yearning looks from Murdoch when he works with Dr. Ogden, and one great fantasy scene when he actually does something about it.

Murdoch is a thoroughly decent fellow who crosses himself when he sees a body and always does his best to be polite. This is my first viewing of this series -- I haven't seen the first three seasons -- so at first I found him a bit too wooden, even for Victorian times. Gradually, though, I began to see the storm of emotion under that stalwart (and very handsome) exterior, and I was hooked.

The 13 episodes in this set run the gamut, from attacks by what appears to be a vampire to a visit with an autistic woman -- they called them "idiot savants" in those days -- whose construction of an exact scale replica of her street uncovers a murder that she didn't have the verbal skills to tell anyone about. There's a primitive gun silencer in one episode and a sort of witness protection plan in another.

There's a great cliffhanger at the end of the season that leaves several loose ends waving in the breeze. It's all great fun, and I look forward to seeing Season 5 when it comes out on DVD.

Haven't purchased season 4, it is too expensive and I wonder why.
I have purchased through Amazon all the seasons of Midsummer Murders, Inspector Lewis, Poirot--and many more, at very affortable cost, recently I purchased the NCIS series 1 through 8, at the pricing under $200.00, which I thought was a great deal.
Therefore, I do not understand why the pricing for Murdoch Mysteries Season 4 is so expensive and beyond reach for many.
Not sure if my "venting" will be read--but I just wanted to share that I wished I was not 'Hooked" on the Murdoch Mysteries series--since I cannot continue to view the upcoming seasons due to the cost.
Thank you

It is too bad that American television can no longer reach the heights of this series. I picked up on it on Netflix and got season 4 here at Amazon. Who is going to get season 5 first?? This is a great series and I wonder why I never saw it on any of the American Cable companies or channels. The acting is tremendous, the writing crisp, the stories varied and holding very close with what we know of the times. Congratulations to those who are responsible for this type of television. Thank you! Thank You! Thank You!!!!!

I love this show. Watching and listening to turn of the century speech is a treat. Everything else is an added bonus, including the devices that Murdoch is always conjuring up. And, Crabtree is a favorite. His futuristic quips are always a pleasure, as well as his imagination. Great show. I can hardly wait for the next season.

Love Murdoch and imagine my surprise and disappointment when I log in today to finish watching an episode I started yesterday and find out that Murdoch is no longer Amazon Prime. These series are so good, I am hooked!
