An explosion at a market shop knocks Constables Crabtree (Jonny Harris) and Higgins (Lachlan Murdoch) to the street. Detective Murdoch's (Yannick Bisson) survey of the scene uncovers a homemade incendiary device. Peter Milne (Brock Johnson), the irate shopkeeper, demands to Inspector Brackenreid (Thomas Craig) that the police cover his considerable losses. But with Higgins seriously injured in the blast, Brackenreid is enraged by his selfishness. Further investigation reveals many other neighbours don't think favourably of Milne, particularly Angus Trout (John Jarvis), who was driven out of business by the aggressive merchant. As Murdoch, Higgins and Brackenreid develop theories about the incident, Brackenreid believes the constabulary may have been the actual targets, given the proximity of the shop to a new police callbox. The notion is quickly quashed when Murdoch is greeted by Terrance Meyers (Peter Keleghan), a high-level government official. Meyers suggests that the Canadian ... Written by Anonymous

Murdoch and Meyers go undercover and infiltrate Goldman's entourage as friends. It is illogical that after Murdoch's exposure as a policeman, no one questions Meyer' identity as a wannabe anarchist. See more »

War on Terror
14 April 2015 | by See all my reviews

This episode really stinks. This starts when a bomb goes off in a store.

They talk bad about Americans as usual. A female Anarchist known to the Canadian higher ups talks in front of crowd putting down capitalism and incites anger. The police as usual are made out to be the bad guy and want to break up the crowd and start pushing people to move and it gets violent.

The writers seem to want to put women in important positions like they are the changers of the world. I am a female and do not agree with the liberal snotty ideas of these women.

Dr Grace the coroner seems to be taunting Officer Crabtree to lower his moral standards using the free love idea of the anarchist. He says he is a cop but she used his writing ability to temp him saying writers are creative etc. I hate people like this. They want to convince you to change your way of thinking by making you feel their ideas or someone else's are smarter and up to modern day standards.

About half way into the video there was a woman talking and its seemed sensual and wishful. I don't want to waste my time listening to some junk talk that has nothing to do with the story so I stopped watching.
