With the Season 11 premiere of Murdoch Mysteries just days away, CBC has released four images in advance of Monday’s new episode, “Up from Ashes.” Yes, we wish we had more pictures as well, but we’ll take whatever we can get!
No, the images do not reveal the fates of Inspector Brackenreid, Dr. Julia Ogden and Constables Crabtree, Jackson or Higginsâ€”we’ll have to tune in on Monday for those revealsâ€”there are still some pretty treats contained in this quartet.
In the first picture, Det. Murdoch sits in a chair in front of Miss Marsh (Tamzin Outhwaite). Is he out of jail, or just given a reprieve from his cell? Who, exactly, is Miss Marsh and why is she speaking to Murdoch? Is he pleading his case? Is she on his side, or against him?
In the second photo, Murdoch is giving serious side-eye to someone. It’s not apparent who.
The third image is a wide shot of Murdoch and Detective Watts. Murdoch is shackled, so we know he’s in police custody. Who is it he and Watts are looking at? It kind of looks like Councilman Williams, who got Murdoch into this mess in the first place.
In the final image, Murdoch is giving a wry smile to the man seen in Image No. 3. I’d guess it is indeed Councilman Williams; I recognize that stiff collar anywhere!
How excited are you for Monday’s Murdoch Mysteries return? Do you think anyone was killed in the Season 10 finale? Let me know in the comments below.
Murdoch Mysteries airs Mondays at 8 p.m. on CBC.
