Comments and queries for the week of March 8

Will there be a Season 13 of Murdoch Mysteries and if so, when will it air? —Regina

Hi Regina. There has been no official word on Season 13 of Murdoch Mysteries. That should be in the coming weeks.

Season 12 is great, just like the 11 previous ones! This season has pleased the audience with a variety of plots, expansion of the subject of episodes and an increase in the number of interesting characters. The season finale is generally terrific without the heavy dramatic upheavals of the heroes of the show, but there are questions to investigate next season (we hope so much!). It is very good that there were no problems in the relationship of William and Julia. But in some episodes of Season 12, their roles were not prioritized. Of course, this made it possible to reveal other characters, but I believe that Detective Murdoch and Dr. Ogden should be in the centre of the plot! It was the charisma and talent of Yannick Bisson and Hélène Joy that ensured the super popularity of the show. I hope that Season 13 will take place and there are many wishes. I’d love to see a Christmas or New Year’s special. It is a pity that in the 12th season there was no such episode. Perhaps Dr. Ogden will again become the coroner instead of Miss Hart. Maybe William and Julia will expand the geographical scope of the show and conduct an investigation in another country. It will be very interesting to meet with James Pendrick and his new ideas, Terence Myers and even with Detective Fellows. Hopefully, George will meet his love, maybe Dr. Grace will come back to the show again. Finally, a lot of fans of the show want to see the baby Julia and William, this couple deserves to be happy. In general, the romantic storyline is very important in this show. Murdoch Mysteries is a unique show, really the best crime drama, not only in Canada but also outside. Thanks to everyone who creates it! —Lilia

Am I the only one who feels that Season 12 has taken a dive? Several episodes don’t know if they want to be a goofy comedy or some silly science fiction. Very disappointing to a show that has been superior. —Leslie

Loved Season 12 as well as the whole series. I do hope that it continues for many years to come. I just wish that they would make more per season. —Carol
