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 based on Maureen Jennings novels. You get Victorian crime 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, at his 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. Guest stars a-plenty.

All episodes are police investigations with interesting new technology (new to the period) 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 (over 2 dozen to date) and still continues on TV.
It is 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.

Season three (3) of this splendid murder mystery/detective series that is set in Victorian Canada (mainly in the city of Toronto) is still so very good. The wonderful Yannick Bisson, as Murdock is still very great as a very forward looking solver of crimes. He is a very dedicated, sincere and very shy police detective that is very willing to use the "new" science of psychology, finger prints (called finger marks at that time) blood analyzes, etc., which were just being discovered , at the time, that is depicted in the series. Again the pathologist (wonderfully played by Helene Joy) is on hand to supply a love interest for Murdoch, to help solve the crimes with her great scientific skills and knowledge and to give some "Morgue Humor" that always puts a look of shock on Murdoch's face--I adore her character.

This season three (3) of "Murdoch Mysteries" is greatly directed and acted with some very good mysteries that kept me wondering until the end and "all was revealed" who "done it" There is not much visible gratuitous violence just some very good mysteries that are solved with the burgeoning science of "crime solving" and by delightful characters that I have come to love including Murdock's boss that has no faith in the "new" ways of police investigation that Murdock depends on. I am really looking forward to Season four (4).

The Murdoch Mysteries came to my attention while visiting Vancouver, B.C. this August. While packing in my hotel room, I turned on the television to view a rerun of Murdoch Mysteries; I was immediately taken in by the incredible costumes, scenery, plot, excellent acting and characters, especially Detective Murdoch. It is very well written for TV. An incredibly well-acted TV series, it captures the imagination of turn-of-the-century North America, with the latest, forward thinking science available, especially from Det. Murdoch, and the viewer can hardly wait for the next episode. The history of invention is interwoven into almost every episode, e.g. finger printing, the telephone, electromagnetic energy (wireless communication), AC electricity, etc. I have seen Seasons 1 and 3 so far (and have Season 4), all on Blu-Ray, waiting for Season 2 on Blu-Ray which for some odd reason, was not released on Blu-Ray with Seasons 1, 3 & 4 (I have been assured that all future seasons will be released on Blu-Ray at the about the same time as DVD). Season 2 is to be released on Blu-Ray in the spring, and Season 5 (last telecast in Canada in late August 2012) will also be released together, on Blu-Ray and DVD in the spring. Season 6 was picked up by Canadian TV (after being dropped by the previous studio) and is just about complete, with the first telecast in Canada scheduled for January 2013. The series amazingly (so far) does not become stagnant, but picks up to even greater levels in acting, scenery, plot and interest of the characters in Season 3 from Season 1, and the ending is really spectacular with Detective Murdoch narrowly missing his attempt to become engaged to Doctor Ogden.Read more ›
