Fans of Henry Higgins and Ruth Newsome, your day has arrived! At long last, Higgins is joining the storied Mimico Newsomes in Monday’s Murdoch Mysteries episode, aptly titled “My Big Fat Mimico Wedding.” At least, that’s the plan.
Written by Simon McNabb—who has penned some of the funniest scripts on Murdoch Mysteries—and directed by Gary Harvey, here’s what the CBC has revealed in their official synopsis:
When Murdoch, Ogden, Crabtree and Brackenreid attend Higgins’ and Ruth Newsome’s wedding, a guest repeatedly tries to kill the groom.
And here are more morsels I can reveal after watching a screener.
Guess who is part of the ceremony?
You can’t have a Newsome storyline, especially a wedding involving one of them, without Rupert Newsome (Cyrus Lane). Lane, as usual, steals every scene he’s in from his co-stars. There are so many giggle-worthy moments that I lost track.
Will Higgins return to Station House No. 4?
It doesn’t appear so when the episode starts and Brackenreid is just fine with it.
George doesn’t attend the wedding solo
That’s all I’ll say about that … other than the journey he takes to get to that state is wonderful.
Speaking of wonderful…
Gary Harvey’s direction is just that. What he does with his large cast of main and supporting characters during key witness testimony is well-executed, fun and really adds to the storytelling.
This is not your typical episode of Murdoch Mysteries
And, because of that, it’s one of my favourites. I can’t wait for fans to see it. Please let me know what you think.
Murdoch Mysteries airs Mondays at 8 p.m. on CBC.
