One of the Best,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Murdoch Mysteries, Season Five (DVD)
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 agree with your review 100%. This show reminds me of the French detective series "Maigret," with the actor Bruno Cremer.
