Everything about Murdoch Mysteries, eh?

DVD review: Murdoch Mysteries season one

From Paul Mavis of DVD Talk:

  • Murdoch Mysteries – Season One
    “Playing very much like Sherlock Holmes Meets CSI, Murdoch Mysteries – Season One has that stolid deliberateness of many Canadian dramas, along with a spotty budget that delivers a sometimes wobbly production design. But in the long run, it should be all about the mysteries, and they’re certainly nothing special. The cast, with the exception of the wonderful Thomas Craig (from Coronation Street), is fairly colorless, as well.” Read more.

In the news: Murdoch Mysteries returns tomorrow

From Bill Harris of Sun Media:

  • Murdoch back with more Mysteries: Series works as both crime and historical drama
    “Man, those collars are white.  Big and white.  Detective William Murdoch, played by Yannick Bisson, arguably has the most impressive collars in the history of TV (Don Cherry notwithstanding). And since the excellent Canadian series Murdoch Mysteries, which kicks off its second season tomorrow night on Citytv, is set in Toronto in the 1890s, maintaining the cleanliness of a white collar is no small feat. ” Read more.

In the news: Murdoch Mysteries heads west

From Fiona Morrow of the Globe and Mail:

  • Go west, young Murdoch
    “Starring Yannick Bisson as the eponymous hero, Detective William Murdoch, the first season of Murdoch Mysteries garnered two Gemini awards and 14 nominations. Originally set and shot in Toronto, the show made the trek across the country to film two episodes out West for the second season – a prerequisite in order for production company, Shaftesbury, to receive all of its funding.” Read more.

Explore the intriguing world of William Murdoch (Yannick Bisson), a handsome young detective using radical forensic techniques in like fingerprinting and trace evidence to solve some of the 1895 Toronto’s most gruesome murders. Though his unconventional ways often elicit ridicule from Inspector Brackenreid (Thomas Craig) Murdoch is often the only one who can solve the case. This season, Murdoch comes to terms with the relationship developing between himself and Dr. Julia Ogden (Hélène Joy). Investigations take Murdoch out to the Calgary Badlands and to a deserted mining town in British Columbia and Murdoch continues to meet some of the period’s more popular characters like Buffalo Bill, Annie Oakley and Harry Houdini.
