Detective Murdoch investigates the apparent kidnapping of a child, Veronica Bowden, where a talking doll is left in her bed. When he winds up the toy, it mentions Murdoch by name and asks if he wants to play. Murdoch traces the doll to a blond woman living in a hotel where he surprisingly finds Veronica safe and sound. She has a doll for him that has yet another message for the detective. Dr. Julia Ogden drops in at the station unexpectedly and suggests that someone Murdoch may have previously arrested is now out for revenge. She's right and now he's kidnapped Dr. Ogden. Written by
