Reviews

Murdoch Mysteries is a dynamic drama series set in Toronto, Canada in the 1890s. William Murdoch (Yannick Bisson) is a young detective who uses progressive new forensic techniques, such as fingerprinting and trace evidence to solve some of the city's most gruesome murders. Each theory is revealed as an intuitive flash--a visual dramatisation of events based on the evidence given. Murdoch is man with an almost supernatural instinct in solving crimes.

Series three will bring back some of Murdoch Mysteries more intriguing characters such as; the mysterious warmonger Terrence Meyers (Peter Keleghan); Julia Ogden's sister Ruby Odgen (Sara Gadon) visits, much to Julia's dismay; and Murdoch once again calls upon Nikola Tesla (Dimitry Chepovetsky) to help defeat his newly discovered nemesis. Some of the cases Murdoch tries to solve in series three include; his investigation into the world of eugenics, when H.G Wells arrives in Toronto to give a lecture; the death of one of their own, a decorated police officer, that blows open the dark underbelly of station number two, eventually leading Murdoch into a world of police racketeering, profiteering, brutality and racism; and the elaborate heist of a valuable Rembrandt painting.

By now fans know what to expect. Toronto. Late 1890s. Murdoch (Yannick Bisson) the astute cycling detective - he a Catholic overlooked for promotion in a staunchly Protestant community. Each episode boss (Thomas Craig) pours scorn on his theories but ends up supportive, Constable George Crabtree (Jonny Harris) ever knocking on the door with important evidence to advance the plot. Meanwhile Julia (Helen Joy) cheerfully conducts her autopsies. Will she and Murdoch ever become an item?

13 episodes. No bonuses. Generally gentle entertainment (with gory moments). Not everything works (Ep.3 needing FAR better makeup for credibility), but most of the cases intrigue and there are surprises. The woman who fatally axed her father - genuinely schizophrenic or is it an act? Who abducted the Inspector's son? How could a Rembrandt disappear from a descending lift?

Highlights? Ep.7 A whole circus troupe amusingly held at the precinct. Ep.9 Bodies preserved in peat far older than thought, which makes the suspects very old indeed. Ep.11 Nothing as it seems when a murderer is executed. (Note the very black humour when creepy Catchpole fulfils his ambition of becoming a hangman.) Elsewhere there is even a haunted mansion, with a final twist that may shock.

In short, as usual there is much to please - this a welcome relief from so many gritty, fast paced police series set in modern times.

Recommended.

I love everything about this series, the characters, plots, science and social history. Yannick Bisson as Murdoch has the character of an early 20th century Canadian detective down pat, and the chemistry between Murdoch and the Pathologist Julia Ogden (played by Helene Joy) is magical. Murdoch Mysteries is more Agatha Christie than CSI, so classical mystery fans will enjoy this change from modern violent crime stories.

Murdoch Mysteries are part funded by ITV so why this is only available on digital channels makes no sense. It has an interesting ensemble of characters, which some of whom are not in the books, and again some of these are different ages to the original characters.
Set in Victorian Canada,and given over to light moments of comedy, at times it plays like an historical version of 'Bones', that other TV series adapted from books which doesn't keep to the original characters. So, you have a crime of the week, an ongoing romance, costumed drama, recently commissioned (in 2013) for a seventh series. The box set itself, as with all the series is 'no frills' for any actor interviews etc one needs to go to u tube. There isn't even a listing of the episodes on the box cover or the discs themselves!

I cannot praise this T.V. series enough! I am totally enthralled by it and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys a t.v. series that is exciting, different, well-acted. Cannot wait for Series 6 to be on sale in November and for Series 7 to appear on T.V. next year.

Treat yourselves......buy it and watch it and you will see what I mean.

We came across the series by accident on Alibi, so we have purchased series 1 to 3. The stories are always intriguing and well thought out. Shall be sorry when we have seen them all. Son has just bought us series 4, and we know there is series 5 available and believe they have made a sixth. Recommend it thoroughly!

This Canadian tv show is made by ITV and is hidden away on sat TV and cable. If you love shows that you grow with the characters and underlying storylines this is must have box sets. It is a who's who of British TV . Sit back and watch 2 episodes a night for great viewing .

A brilliant series which continues to go from strength to strength. Little known in the UK, the series is wonderfully filmed, all of the characters are engaging and interesting, and the storylines always strong. If you like high-quality TV cop shows you must see this.
