Everything about Murdoch Mysteries, eh?

Interview: Yannick Bisson of Murdoch Mysteries

From Ruth Myles of the Calgary Herald:

  • Man Of Mystery: Looking for clues with the lead actor of Murdoch Mysteries
    “Yannick Bisson is playing hooky on a rainy afternoon in the Big Smoke, not something his character on the entertaining TV series Murdoch Mysteries would ever be caught dead doing. Det. William Murdoch, after all, is not the type to shirk his duty as he sets about solving crimes in turn-of-the-last-century Toronto with the aid of his cohorts and cutting-edge techniques such as fingerprinting. So what motivates the man? ‘He is all about the holy right and the wrong being abolished,’ says Bisson, who gives us a few more clues on what makes Murdoch tick.” Read more.

A farmer is brutally murdered and his daughter, Charlotte (Anastasia Phillips), admits to the crime. Murdoch (Yannick Bisson) doesn’t think it’s so neat and tidy however and begins to realize that there is something very strange about the usually docile and considerate Charlotte. When Murdoch interviews Charlotte’s mother and brother he realizes he needs an expert in the fledgling field of psychology to get through to the increasingly unpredictable Charlotte. Murdoch brings in the well-known “alienist” Dr. Roberts (Paul Amos) to help him determine what is happening to Charlotte. It’s only then that Murdoch uncovers the horrifying and grisly family secrets that lie at the root of her problems.

Murdoch (Yannick Bisson) is called in to investigate the murder of police constable Felix Cooper (Martin Hooper) in Toronto’s Chinatown. Findings from Ogden’s (Hélène Joy) post-mortem lead Murdoch and Cooper’s beat partner, Constable Randall Townsend (Gabriel Hogan), to investigate herbalist Feng Choy (Simon Sinn) who was paying bribes to Cooper. Murdoch suspects that Choy is being set up and that somehow his teenaged granddaughter figures in the murder. Murdoch’s dogged investigation into the fearful and mistrusting world of Chinese immigrants will lead him to expose the dark underbelly of police corruption and could prove to be both career and life threatening.
