Murdoch Mysteries

Difficult to believe I’ve been watching Murdoch Mysteries for going on 7 Seasons (we need more!)

The books by Maureen Jennings are great, but the series is fantastic.mm14

This Canadian drama stars Yannick Bisson as William Murdoch, a complicated police detective working in Toronto, Ontario, Canada in the 1890s to early 1900s. It’s absorbing, a little daft, but always intriguing and keeps you mesmerized.

Brilliant job of combining The Gilded Age’, a time when the world seemed to have so much promise with hints of amazing things to come, with a splash of reflection on how things started or went wrong; hindsight being 20/20 and all that.

Valuable lessons, drama, murder, mystery, romance, laughs – Murdoch Mysteries has it all. The only thing that could make it better, perhaps a recurring role for Paul Gross. Just a suggestion.

This remarkable drama has caught on worldwide, with good reason. Enjoy!
