Storyline

Detective Murdoch investigates the murder of Nathan Peters, a jazz musician and renowned band-leader, who was found dead at the docks. His group, the Jubilee Singers, was performing nearby and his wife had already reported him missing. Dr. Emily Grace determines that he died in the early hours of the morning from a blow to the head causing a subdural hemorrhage. The evidence in the case begins to point to one of the Jubilee Singers as the perpetrator. Much to George Crabtree's chagrin, Emily seems to have taken an interest in the roguish Leslie Garland. Julia meanwhile feels that a huge weight has been taken off her shoulders now that James Gillian is dead. Written by garykmcd

Black Jubilee Singers
5 May 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A man that plays a instrument in the jubilee singers group is killed in an alley at the dock. No one seems to know why he is not with the group or why he is at the dock. Someone says he gambles with dice.

He is married to one of the singers in the group who sings nice spiritual music. A Temperance group protest a place where this group is playing. They are not playing gospel music but ragtime music and they don't like the men and woman dancing and touching each other. Murdoch did not know much about ragtime music and he takes Dr Julia Odgen with him to go hear this music. A jubilee female dances very sexual on stage. Julia likes the way the female is dancing and starts voicing her feminist propaganda.

There seems to be tension among the black group with each other but no one wants to talk. There is also tension about who is in the band and who is needed so they can succeed.

During the mean time Dr Ogden's brother in law who is now living with her in her dead husband's house is making a play for Emily Grace the coroner who Constable Crabtree has begun to like. Crabtree sees Emily responding very friendly to Mr Garland and Crabtree looks uneasy.

This episode also has a white woman that had an affair with one of the black band members and had a baby by him. She comes to Toronto to look for him.

In the end the wife of man that was killed in the alley is very distraught when she hears how her husband died and why.
