Storyline

Detective Murdoch faces an unusual case when the desiccated body of a man falls through the ceiling of the Grand Theater and onto the stage during a performance of Macbeth. Using dental records, the body is identified as that of Virgil Smart, the former owner of the theater who had died a year ago. Problem is, Smart is supposed to be buried and when they re-open his grave, they find the body of an unknown man. Murdoch suggests that Dr. Ogden attempt a facial reconstruction to identify the body. When Murdoch and Crabtree find a hidden room off Smart's office, a love nest, they believe they've found the site of his murder. Written by garykmcd

This show is set in the late 1890s, but the two books were actually written in the following century: The Food of the Gods and How It Came to Earth (1904) and The War in the Air (1908). See more »

Quotes

Detective William Murdoch: [Referring to the desiccated body that has fallen through the ceiling during a live performance of "Macbeth"] Must have made quite an entrance!
Inspector Thomas Brackenreid: [Sarcastically] Audience lapped it up. Ignorant sods thought it was part of the play.
