Photo gallery: Murdoch Mysteries rings in the holidays

It’s the most wonderful time of the year … except for a murdered philanthropist and stolen gifts meant for needy children. That’s the main storyline behind Monday’s upcoming Murdoch Mysteries‘ holiday special “A Merry Murdoch Christmas”, a rollicking two-hour present guest-starring Ed Asner as Santa Claus, Downton Abbey‘s Brendan Coyle as Mr. Rankin and The O.C.‘s Kelly Rowan as Mrs. Millicent McGowan alongside the series’ regulars.

“It’s a complete Christmas movie,” showrunner Peter Mitchell—who wrote the instalment—teases. “You don’t have to have seen an episode of Murdoch Mysteries to watch it.”

There’s a lot going on in “A Merry Murdoch Christmas” aside from the main crime: the holidays stir up bad memories for Inspector Brackenreid and Crabtree seems destined for a Christmas alone. And, if the picture of William and Julia can be trusted, a very special gift is in the cards.

Take a peek at these images and get ready for Monday night.

  1. I’ve read that the Murdoch Mysteries Christmas Special will not be available – on any network or channel or even YouTube – to us United States viewers. I can’t move to Canada from Texas, so whoever is responsible for distribution is just being cruel.

  2. This was a great show and sure to be amongst the classics. A little disconnected as no mention of the nativity at all and this seemed strange given Murdoch’s Catholic background. However, a very fine show. Never stop!
