Girls rule! Boys drool! That was the first thing that popped into my head when I spotted images for Monday’s new episode of Murdoch Mysteries. As you can see above, that’s Effie Newsome, Louise Cherry and Dr. Julia Ogden looking very much like Charlie’s Angels as they strut Toronto’s cobbled streets.
Here’s what the CBC has released regarding “In the Company of Women,” written by Lori Singer and directed by Gary Harvey:
Ogden and Effie try to untangle the death of a hair salon owner that occurred outside Murdochâ€™s jurisdiction.
And here, as always, are more observations from me.
Lots of ladies …
In addition to Clare McConnell and Bea Santos, look for Carlyn Burchell (who previously appeared as Monique/Victoria in “Monsieur Murdoch”). It’s quickly established that Effie and Louise are at odds when it comes to a certain Constable George Crabtree. Could he have two women battling for his affections? Also, HÃ©lÃ¨ne Joy shows her comedic side, which is always welcome.
… and a couple of gentlemen
Jesse LeVercombe returns as butcher Jack Walker, alongside one heck of a large pig named Atley. Jack Clarke appears as Detective Graham Irwin. Det. Irwin is in charge of the investigation because it falls outside, as mentioned above, of William’s purview.
While his wife works on solving a crime, Detective Murdoch is busy at the station house, discussing exotic meals and assigning Watts a missing porker.
Julia vs. Violet
This is all I will say on the subject.
Murdoch Mysteries airs Mondays at 8 p.m. on CBC.
