Det. Murdoch and Const. Crabtree investigate when a body is uncovered by workmen. The remains are quite old and date from perhaps the mid-1860s. Dr. Ogden's review of the remains indicate that he might have been murdered. Among the remains is a gin flask with a note secreted in a false bottom. The note is signed by none other than the man who would later become Canada's first Prime Minister, Sir John A. MacDonald. The dead man is soon identified and Murdoch's old nemesis from Ottawa, spook Terence Meyers, is on the scene as well. A surprise visitor to the station gives them vital information about the theft of $1 million in gold and a connection to the U.S. Civil War. Written by garykmcd

Did You Know?


Although Copperheads supported the Union, they were against the War, which they viewed as being controlled by Abolitionists and caused their loyalty to be suspect. Some of them operated out of Canada. See more »


The union flag flying from the fishing boat was upside down. No Canadian detective would have made that mistake as before wireless communication it was a sign of distress. 'Thick to the mast, thin to the fly'. See more »

Americans made to look bad, swearing not acceptable
4 April 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A man was found dead by some workmen and he had a drinking flask with a false bottom to hide a letter. The writers make it sound like he was dead for years but the events that he was involved with and the people he was with are all still alive.

Murdoch investigates the man's murder. There is a gun buried with him. There is a lot of confusion as to what's going on.

It appears the Canadians are helping the US Confederates and there are spies in the Confederates and Union and who knows what. They do talk bad about our country.

This has to do with a ship that sunk with gold headed for America from Canada bringing gold to the Confederates.

Two minutes before the show ends a American man is interviewed by Murdoch swears "son of a b th" and "God's name" I got so mad after watching it for over 40 minutes just to hear these swearing words.

The big "pretend" Catholic-Murdoch who is written into the series as Catholic does not even blink when the swearing starts. Series like Murdoch Mysteries, Midsomer Murder and others use swearing but not just any swearing they insult the Christian and Catholic's God-> "Jesus" and mock theirs/my religion. They also add homosexual behavior and occult practices in these episodes as acceptable. As an aside you will never hear them insult a Hindu or Muslim religion.

So with all it's mystery remember these episodes are probably written by atheist or directed by atheist. Believers have to watch what they can and bring out the deception in a review when they make fun of our values or make religious people the villains as bad, controlling, mean and judgmental
