Recap: Republic of Murdoch

From Samantha Sobolewski of TV Guide Canada:

A Doyle-ful ‘Murdoch Mysteries’
Could there be anything more heartwarming than an inter-CBC crossover between the beloved families of Murdoch Mysteries and Republic of Doyle? Perhaps a Venti-sized hot chocolate with extra whip.

Recaps: Republic of Doyle

From Eleni Armenakis of TV Guide Canada:

‘Republic of Doyle’: Jake’s a dad!
What an emotional roller coaster Republic of Doyle is taking me on this season. After the heartwrenching devastation of the past two weeks, “Young Guns” took things in an entirely different direction, seeing Jake gain a long-lost daughter after losing the love of his life. Continue reading.

Episode Recap: Republic of Doyle – “Young Guns”
It’s Hostage Taking Week at CBC! At least I think it is, judging by the similarly themed episodes of Crossing Lines and Republic of Doyle. Maybe it’s all part of some greater CBC meta-narrative, setting up a shared universe that runs through all of the Ceeb’s programing with this week’s Doyle/Murdoch Mysteries cross-over just a tease of what’s to come? Next month: Arctic Air discovers Captain Canuck frozen in ice after sixty years! Continue reading.

CBC delivers more primetime drama as hit series MURDOCH MYSTERIES and REPUBLIC OF DOYLE deliver two crossover episodes featuring stars Yannick Bisson and Allan Hawco as they swap series in guest starring roles.

In Republic of Murdoch, when a traveller is found dead in his hotel room clutching an ancient map, it leads Murdoch and Crabtree (Jonny Harris) to the Colony of Newfoundland. There, a flinty character named Jacob Doyle (Allan Hawco) becomes Murdoch’s prime suspect. As he delves deeper into the case, Murdoch uncovers bitter feuds and promises of riches that reveal the true motive behind the murder. Set in Toronto during the early 1900s, MURDOCH MYSTERIES follows Detective Murdoch (Yannick Bisson) as he uses unusual forensic techniques for the time to solve some of the city’s most gruesome murders.

In If The Shoe Fits Des (Mark O’Brien) buys the contents of an unclaimed storage locker and finds a rather unexpected surprise inside. Then, a strange kidnapping case leads Jake and Des (Mark O’Brien) to cross paths with Toronto cop Bill Murdoch (Yannick Bisson), but Jake’s suspicious of the mainland officer when it appears he isn’t telling them the whole truth. REPUBLIC OF DOYLE stars Allan Hawco as the charming and bold detective Jake Doyle, who struggles daily to navigate the complications of running the family P.I. business while keeping his very volatile private life in check.
