  1. awesome good news bringing the original team on directors and behind the scenes participants and actors creating a seamless production works for me. Good luck going forward for season 14

  2. So excited to start filming season 14 of the great show Murdoch Mysteries! My family and I look forward to meeting our beloved characters William Murdoch, his delightful wife Dr. Ogden, the Inspector and George. Is there just 11 episodes in season 14? Everyone understands the complexity of filming in a pandemic, but we really want at least 18 episodes. We love this show very much and wish good luck to all its team!

    1. Yes, only 11 episodes of Murdoch Mysteries is disappointing, I bet to most fans in Canada/America & around the world. Plus, advertising revenue is lost to CBC. But at least the series is not cancelled & so far, watching the repeats on CBC is worthwhile.

  3. Thank you for doing this. It must be hard and confusing at times but happy to see that you have found a way to produce 11 episodes for us. Good luck and stay safe.

    1. This is very disappointing that fans have to wait at least a year for one one the greatest mystery series of all times!

    2. There’s nothing, that compares to Murdoch Mysteries on CBC or any other channel & waiting till bloody hell winter, is torture.

  4. the only good thing about this pandemic is my introduction to Murdoch Mysteries. I started watching this series a few weeks ago and immediately became an ardent fan, so much so that I have watched every episode several times. Really great cast of characters. Am anxiously awaiting new episodes but patience have never been my strong suit.

    1. Lucky Marjorie, gets to travel back in time, to the world of Murdoch Mysteries. I finally got to watch”The Waltons”(no laughing allowed), 5 days a week, for the first time, after watching Murdoch on CBC of coarse. The Waltons is a quality program, with realistic good values & the family, everyone wish they had.

  5. I am so glad my TV family is coming back.
    I have not seen my real family in 5 years now and was so looking forward to going home to England this year to see them until Covid reared it’s ugly head.
    So waiting for another year to see my TV family doesn’t seem such a long time to wait. At least it is coming back. WooHoo!!!
