Storyline

In the late 1890s, police Detective William Murdoch takes a new, more scientific approach to solving crimes. Assisted by coroner Dr. Julia Ogden and Constable George Crabtree, Murdoch introduces such concepts as finger marks and lie detecting machines. He has the support of his somewhat doubtful superior, Inspector Brackenreid, though at times, even he finds Murdoch's methods - and claims - somewhat astounding. Written by garykmcd

Yannick Bisson
28 January 2008 | by See all my reviews

Yannick Bisson is a fine actor and does a Excellent job as Murdoch. I'm sure that Peter did a good job with the movies but TV shows are different. And if you read Maureen Jennings site you find out that she likes Yannick Bisson as Murdoch in the TV show as well as Peter in the movies. I know that some people can be fans of a certain actor and they are loyal to that actor so that might cloud there judgment.So a TV show can be good and the new actor playing the part very good but if someone is loyal to the other actor they may have a clouded judgment on the show. If you watch the TV show you will fine that it is wonderful show and that Yannick Bisson is a fine actor and does a great job as Murdoch. I also trust Maureen Jennings since she wrote the books and she is pleased with Mr. Bisson and the TV show. All you have to do is watch the TV show and you find out for yourself that its a great show, and Yannick is a great Murdoch. So watch and find out for yourself.
