Set in 1895 Toronto, “Murdoch Mysteries” explores the intriguing world of William Murdoch (Yannick Bisson, “Sue Thomas F.B. Eye”), a handsome young detective using radical forensic techniques, like fingerprinting and trace evidence, to solve some of the city’s most gruesome murders. Though his unconventional approach elicits ridicule from fellow officers and skepticism from his boss, Inspector Brackenreid (Thomas Craig, “Coronation Street”), Murdoch is often the only one who can crack the case.

Murdoch’s small circle of confidantes includes pathologist Dr. Julia Ogden (Hélène Joy, “Durham County”), a staunch ally who shares the detective’s fascination with forensic science and Constable George Crabtree (Jonny Harris, “Hatching, Matching and Dispatching”), Murdoch’s eager but inexperienced right-hand man. Both are valuable allies who help Murdoch solve his varied cases and traverse the many stratums of Victorian society.

“Murdoch Mysteries” is produced and developed by Shaftesbury Films in association with Citytv, a division of Rogers Media Inc., Granada International and UKTV, and with the assistance of the Canadian Film or Video Production Tax Credit, the Ontario Film and Television Tax Credit and the Canadian Television Fund.

Don’t miss the premiere of “Murdoch Mysteries” Thursday, January 24th, 2008 (Citytv Winnipeg January 20th, 2008), on Citytv stations across Canada. “Murdoch Mysteries” will be video described in all markets.

  1. Mr. Bisson has a pretty big pair of shoes to fill here. Peter Outerbridge was reamrkable in the role in the series of telelfilms that have preceded the series.

    I hope he can pull it off.

  2. Not going to be the same without Peter Outerbridge I am not sure if I will watch or not as I will probably find it very disapointing as I was expecting it to be the same as the telefilms were

    I really enjoyed them whenever I watched them … too bad!

  3. Having been privy to some of the episodes I can say it is worth your time to check out. Though there are always expectations whether it be films based on novels or tv shows based on films some just find their own mark and pay off. There was a lot of effort to make this show the best it could be and my understanding is that the original writer spent a lot of time on set to help ensure the integrity of the project as a whole. As a fan of a good mystery I hope that it does gather a following as it will only get better.

  4. Murdoch Mysteries is a wonderful program. I watch it every week. Yannick Bisson is wonderful as usual and so easy on the eyes.

  5. i love that show very good show i watch the show very night at six 0 clock sit to see the show and to learn things about FBI eye
