Also, you have a variety of guests who pop in 0 some for a single episode and others for several episodes. In year eight there are a couple of episodes featuring women's suffrage. And, in one a little girl tells a lady who has run for Parliament, that she hopes to grow up someday and run herself. The name of the little girl in the episode was the actual name of the first lady to be elected to Canada's Parliament about 20 years after the time of this particular episode.
I can hardly wait for year 9 to appear on DVD in August.
The show is well put together and the actors go through the episodes with just the right amount of humor and drama. The show is a police show but takes a lot from Sherlock Holmes right down to having Conan Doyle show up. I can tell you this was money well spent and time watching it is also well spent.
Never heard of most of the cast before but I hope they stay going with this show for years to come. I feel safe in recommending this show for those who like police shows well acted and written and are not bothered that it also has it's light moments.
