Constable George Crabtree: [showing betting slip] Sir, fifty cents on William Murdoch.
Detective William Murdoch: Oh, George, I'm afraid your money would be best spent elsewhere. I'm competing against professionals.
Constable George Crabtree: Well, sir, I thought about that, and I brought you this. It's a caffeine drink, so it should level the playing field. Strength of a bull in a bottle there, sir.
Detective William Murdoch: That's all right, George. I've created my own advantage. Sprockets.

Need a strong stomach for this one
23 January 2015 | by See all my reviews

Murdoch and a group of bicyclers are competing against each other is a race. The men are all trained an very athletic.

During the race the head man falls off his bike and dies. At first it is thought the cyclist fell from exhaustion. Dr Grace, the coroner examines how the man died.

Brown bottles of some substance were given to the riders by the trainer Chippy. The content is suspected as causing the cyclist to die. Dr Grace cannot find anything bad in the man's body that would cause his death.

After suspecting different causes of the man's death Dr Grace calls in another female coroner and they dissect the man's brain. It is very disgusting. Dr Grace uses lab tools to crack the skull to get the brain out. The brain is removed and Dr Grace holds it in her hands it is almost like it is a big joke. I rated this low because I did not think this should have been included along with the women's talk and the table set out with pieces of the victims brain on it. Scenes like this are not included in US crime series. Ours are violent but not pieces of the body talked about or examined like this in a fake crime scene.

Watch the story if you have a strong stomach.
