Smart and engaging, this award-winning mystery series centers on brilliant detective William Murdoch (Yannick Bisson, Sue Thomas: F.B.Eye), a pioneer of crime-solving technologies in Victorian Toronto. Still reeling from a personal and professional crisis, Murdoch has taken up gold prospecting at the start of Season 5. Soon he’s back in detective mode, helping a woman accused of murder; investigating an Egyptian curse; experimenting with time travel; and crossing paths with Jack London, Henry Ford, and his idol, Alexander Graham Bell. Meanwhile, Dr. Ogden (Gemini® winner Hélène Joy, Durham County) hires a feisty new coroner, Dr. Emily Grace (Georgina Reilly, The L.A. Complex), who catches the eye of Constable Crabtree (Jonny Harris, Hatching, Matching & Dispatching).
Guest stars include Aaron Ashmore (Smallville), Peter Keleghan (The Red Green Show), Matthew Bennett (Battlestar Galactica), Lisa Faulkner (Murder in Suburbia), and opera star Measha Brueggergosman.

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...
1899 Victorian Canada historical suspense & crime drama. Enjoy blissfulness in fictional revealing of significant inventions. Murdoch's paths cross with some legendary greats. All part of the charm and entertainment amidst suspense. If you are new to Murdoch, catch yourself up with the new set:
Murdoch Mysteries Collection: Seasons 1-4.
You can view season 5 as a stand-alone season, but trust me, you DO WANT every episodes.
Yannick Bisson's leading Murdoch role is rejoined with his boss, Brackenreid (Thomas Craig), Crabtree (Jonny Harris), in all episodes; and Dr. Ogden (Helen Joy) in most episodes. Higgins (Lachlan Murdoch) misses only one. A bright new star in coroner Dr. Grace (Georgina Reilly). Her saucy flair turns Crabtree's eye. Mine too!
SDH SUBTITLES for all 13 episodes, each near 50 min.
Season 5 (2012) episode synopses--without spoilers--if you like detail.
