Happy New Year, Murdoch Mysteries fans! I hope you all enjoyed the holidaysâ€”and celebrated by rewatching all three Murdoch TV-moviesâ€”and are ready for an awesome 2018.
An all-new episode of Murdoch Mysteries airs this coming Monday, and we think you’re going to love it. Here’s what the CBC has revealed, story-wise aboutÂ “F.L.A.S.H.,” written by Paul Aitken and directed by Eleanore Lindo:
MurdochÂ investigates a manâ€™s bizarre death, which may have been caused by a high-speed travel device.
And, as always, here are some other non-spoilery notes after we watched the episode.
Guess who guest-stars?
Anytime a Murdoch Mysteries storyline involves the word “device,” it’s a pretty safe bet that a certain inventor friend of William’s will be called upon. And yes, that’s the case this week. Kudos to everyone involved in set decoration and set building; they go above and beyond with their creations this week.
A double-dose of Margaret
Clearly, enough of us were good girls and boys last year because Margaret Brackenreid shows up. That’s two weeks in a row if you count Home for the Holidays.
Mon Dieu George!
If you’ve been paying attentionâ€”and I know you haveâ€”George is on a road trip this week with gal pal Nina Bloom. Bon voyage mes amis!
Code word: Lemniscate
This plays a major part in William and Julia’s storyline this week and it’s fantastic. And yes, I had to Google the word for spelling and meaning. Speaking of meanings, what F.L.A.S.H. stands for is unveiled 10 minutes into the broadcast.
Murdoch Mysteries airs Mondays at 8 p.m. on CBC.
