Sad, but true. Season 13 of Murdoch Mysteries is coming to a close. And with it, key appearances by beloved characters. Last week’s episode, “Rigid Silence,” brought back Chief Constable Giles. It was good to catch up with him as William and Julia solved a murder in Kingston, but I can’t help but worry about his safety as he closes out his sentence. A lot of bad can happen in three months.
As for this Monday, Toronto welcomes Terrence Meyers. I love Peter Keleghan, the actor who plays him, but Meyers has never been a favourite of mine. I think it’s because it’s hard to get a straight answer out of him and it frustrates me. Regardless, here’s what the CBC has revealed about “The Trial of Terrence Meyers,” written by Paul Aitken and directed by Gary Harvey:
When Terrence Meyers faces charges of treason, Murdoch and Ogden are named as accomplices.
Back at home
After decamping to the hotel because of those nasty plumbing troubles, William and Julia are back at home. We meet up with them moments before tucking into a home-cooked meal William is cautiously optimistic about.
Oodles of intrigue
Paul Aitken’s script sets the tone early, establishing how serious the government is in regards to its charges against Terrence Meyers … and William and Julia.
A true team effort
Terrence’s trial recalls many of his past exploits. That means flashbacks to scenes written by Adam Barken and the late Graham Clegg, and directors Jill Carter, Leslie Hope, Sudz Sutherland, John L’Ecuyer and Shawn Alex Thompson. Combining all of the flashbacks as part of the main storyline makes for a highly entertaining tale and a fond look back at some of Meyers’ more outrageous scenes.
Murdoch Mysteries airs Mondays at 8 p.m. on CBC.
