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

My opinion: this is quality television!
30 July 2010 | by (Hungary) – See all my reviews

It was such a delight to watch The Murdoch Mysteries! It has everything: fine cast, beautiful locations, interesting storyline. I do not know whether the stories were accurate adaptations of the novels, because I did not read them. I simply enjoyed the series.

I think Peter Outerbridge was an excellent choice for Murdoch, his detective is handsome, curious, clever and brave enough to try new methods of investigation. Keeley Hawes was also great, sad that she was left out from episode 3. The supporting cast was fine too.The set and locations were convincing, just like in the Granada Sherlock Holmes series.

Does anyone know why the series ended after 3 eps? I read that there is a new series with new cast and shorter episodes, but I did not see any of them, only promos. It was quite odd for me to see Yannick Bisson as Murdoch, I think Outerbridge was a better choice.
