Storyline

Set in the gritty back streets of 1890s Toronto, Detective William Murdoch employs the latest in forensic science to solve the city's most gruesome murders. While his superior, Inspector Brackenreid, doubts the validity of Murdoch's methods -such as fingerprints, he finds allies in Dr. Julia Ogden and Constable George Crabtree. Through his investigations, Murdoch is also drawn closer to the street-smart prostitute, Ettie Weston... The series encompasses three dark and twisting feature-length episodes: "Except the Dying," "Poor Tom Is Cold," and "Under the Dragon's Tail." Written by L. Hamre

BRAVO! I am hooked!
31 May 2014 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

Very smart and entertaining show! Maybe people will look into some of these story lines and see how our reality is orchestrated by the few banking families holding the world hostage?? Hope springs eternal! END THE FED! THE WORLD BANK AND THE IMF... Etc!

That was all I had to say, but since I need to say more, I will comment on a couple of my favorite episodes. The one about the monetary and government philosophies. Notice, the plot to blame the Anarchists for "fomenting dissent" was created by the Capitalists! And that plot could have started a war! It happens with wars to this day. False flags! Look them up! Educate yourselves!

The very first episode... "Power" showed us how we could have all been free a long time ago through the intelligent use of technology, resources and FREE energy, but notice AGAIN how PROFITS for the "Few" were more important than actual progress for ALL of earth's inhabitants. If true freedom could have been experienced then, it could be now.

We must make these "out of touch" people see the error of their ways by making them and their money irrelevant!
