We have watched Murdoch Mysteries since its inception, first on PBS, then on Netflix, and now via Acorn TV. Superb writing and acting all through the seasons. Saw Episode 18 last night and were stunned with the possibilities it left us with. Always interesting parallels with current times and history. Glad to read more historical figures will be included in the next season! Bravo to the cast and crew; looking forward to the fall season. —Julie and Ron
That was just annoying. Murdoch’s been framed for murder before, Ogden’s been kidnapped before, George has been in trouble before … this may have been intended as a cliffhanger, but it was a damp squib. It seems the writers have literally run out of ideas. There was nothing clever or interesting or period-specific. Or even very Canadian. Boring all around. —Robin
Absolutely love this show, without a doubt one of the best in a very long time. I started out watching it, then the channel it was on stopped carrying it. Fortunately, I discovered Acorn TV; thank goodness, now I can get my Murdoch fix anytime I like. Season 10, Episode 18 was a cliffhanger indeed! I was actually talking to the screen, but they just didn’t seem to pay any attention to me. Can hardly wait until next season, and just hope that Acorn picks it up early on! It will be great to get some of the historically famous people back into the episodes, always fun. [This season] seemed to come up a little short on that but was a great season all the same and the best cliffhanger to date! —Jerry
Nice dramatic set up for next year, however… As the storyline was about criminal familiarity and its intertwined relationships that people are afraid to challenge, how is the Murdoch team quickly cast to the wolves with such abandon? You know, the crew that saved Canada and Toronto numerous times? Friends of the Prime Minister and cloak and dagger figures have their powerful alliances too. The set-up could have been done without discarding half the previous episodes. Oh well, here is hoping we don’t get a Bobby in the shower summary. Always a fan, much better than U.S. television. —Mike
