Preview: Murdoch Mysteries, “Troublemakers”

The fact that the summer has flown by—to me, anyway, is great for two reasons. The first: autumn, my favourite time of year. The second? The return of Murdoch Mysteries of course!

Copious Instagram posts during the past months from stars Yannick Bisson and Hélène Joy only served to grow my excitement for Season 13 while showrunner Peter Mitchell’s frequent Twitter and Facebook posts reminded me he was not only running Murdoch this year but Season 3 of Frankie Drake Mysteries as well.

A man looks through a magnifying glass.But enough about the past, let’s get into Season 13, shall we? Here’s what the CBC has revealed as the official storyline for “Troublemakers,” written by Peter Mitchell and directed by Harvey Crossland.

Murdoch investigates an explosion at a suffrage rally attended by Dr. Talbot (Claire Goose) and Julia, after a man dies.

And here are more thoughts from me after watching a screener.

Hélène Joy’s newest role
To those who missed it in CBC’s Season 13 production announcement earlier this year, Ms. Joy has a new role on MM. She is now an executive producer. What does that mean? I’ll let you know; I’m hoping to land an interview with her this season. But for now: congratulations!

Two men stand next to each other.Who is Claire Goose?
As is the norm on Murdoch Mysteries, British actors are constantly dropping by to play in our sandbox. The latest is Claire Goose, who has appeared in such UK series as The Coroner, Death in Paradise, Waking the Dead and Casualty.

Brackenreid’s life continues to be complicated
Thomas’ daughter writes to her father with a request. One he’s reluctant to fulfil.

Murdoch’s not keen on Ms. Hart
As we discovered last season, William knows Ms. Hart’s plans and is keeping a close eye on her. And though she uncovers many facts pertaining to Monday’s case (particularly concerning an Orsini bomb), he’s not willing to toss much praise her way.

Murdoch Mysteries airs Mondays at 8 p.m. on CBC.

  1. We are looking forward to new meetings with the beloved heroes of this wonderful show, especially with Julia and William! We hope they will be in the center of the plots of all episodes of season 13!

  2. What an amazing opener to season 13 loved the Brackenreids interactions especially Margeret’s characterization of the Jones rival/schadenfreude and Julia’s declaration of her challenges as a professional woman at the end of the episode made me bawl. It totally resonated with the challenges I know my grandmothers , mom, aunt , wife and daughters have confronted in their lives. They all met opposition with a steely resolve while retaining grace charm and class along the way. Three cheers for the spirit embodied by Dr Ogden.
