Storyline

The police investigate the murder of Howard Rookwood, a well-known Toronto industrialist and philanthropist who was struck on the head just outside of his house. Rookwood was an active supporter of Baker House, a home that specializes in relocating underprivileged children from England to Canada and his own daughter was adopted. As Detective Murdoch examines the forensic evidence, he and Doctor Ogden conclude that a child, or children, may be the culprit. The true motivation and solution to the crime however is far darker.

Another 'PC' Yawner
3 January 2012 | by (Metairie, LA) – See all my reviews

This episode would have been fantastic if not for the obligatory modern-day politically correct slant -- this time, child sexual abuse. Yes, it happens. It has been happening since the beginning of time, but must we have it crammed down our throats in a TV show that is "supposed" to be about crime detection in late Victorian Canada? There are so many other -- and much more interesting -- reasons the victim in this show could have ended up dead. The producers and writers need to get their minds out of the politically correct gutter and concentrate on entertaining viewers instead of wasting their time, and ours, on 20th and 21st century issues! We see, hear and read about child sexual abuse all the time, but in the Victorian era, it was swept under the rug and that's where it needs to be in this TV series.
