Detective Murdoch and Inspector Brackenreid are aboard the SS Keewatin after the owner, Clarence MacFarlane, receives what he believes is a threat. The Keewatin is about to depart from Toronto on its maiden voyage destined for Rochester, N.Y. and Murdoch thinks they should stay on board, especially after he sees that Julia is one of the invited guests. Their presence proves useful after MacFarlane's daughter Amy, who is engaged to her father's chief financial officer Owen Mathers, falls overboard and is nowhere to be found. As Murdoch investigates he finds there is a real threat against the Keewatin and the true facts behind Amy's disappearance. Written by garykmcd

Did You Know?


The cruise ship used for filming is the SS Keewatin, the only surviving Edwardian steamship in the world. It was built in 1907 and remains in working condition on the Great Lakes. See more »


Dr. Ogden performs CPR on Murdoch in the flooded hold of the ship. Various forms of artificial respiration were explored during the 19th century, but it was not until the early 1960s that the method of external chest compression was discovered by James Jude and colleagues. Full CPR (artificial respiration combined with chest compression) was first seen in a training video in 1962. See more »

Murder on board
23 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Murdoch and his supervisor go on board a large ship with many people. It is like a cruise ship. Dr Odgen is on board. Murdock & her talk about a man that killed her husband on trial. They don't make this clear how they found out who did it and not her, I was disappointed and surprised to see her in this episode.

They are there because they get a warning note that there will be a murder on board. The owner of the ship Mr MacFarlane is on board with his wife, daughter and a man that works for him who his daughter is going to marry.

There are problems with the MacFarlane's daughter and she goes missing from the ship. Her hat is found overboard but her body is not.

Constable George Crabtree adds some humor to the series and it is needed at times because of the suspense and tense situations. There is no swearing in the few episodes I watched no nudity or sexual content which I am happy about. Very reserved and honorable acting.

This episode has murder, bomb threats to happen on the ship and more. I decided to watch Murdoch episodes earlier now and not late at night.
