Detective Murdoch finds that the man behind a flying machine that crashes in Toronto is none other than his old nemesis, James Pendrick. He learns that Pendrick is hoping to win a $1 million prize for the first controlled flight. A body is found in the rubble of the crash but someone is clearly out to steal his invention. Murdoch also has to deal with Ottawa-based spymaster Terence Meyers who says it's all a national security matter. Meanwhile, Julia returns from Vienna intent on practicing psychiatry. She's also hoping to have her marriage to D'Arcy annulled. Written by garykmcd

User Reviews

Unusual - Bad effects, weird directing, mediocre acting.
13 July 2014 | by bgsu3See all my reviews

As a huge fan of Murdoch Mysteries (and as a TV producer), I have enjoyed watching the quality of the animations on this show get better incrementally each year. (You can really see a difference when you binge watch a bunch of episodes in a row, like we have!)

This time, the animators bit off more than they could chew. Flying scenes look like they were done with green screens 30 years ago. It was laughable. I won't go on.

In this episode, it felt like some of the actors ha enjoyed too long an off-season without exercising their chops. Even the usually-convincing Mr. Pendrick (Peter Stebbings) was a bit, well, non-convincing.

We're hoping the rest of the season picks up - and that the scripts don't call for any more elaborate flying scenes.
