In the news: Murdoch Mysteries production tidbit

From Karena Walter of the St. Catharines Standard:

  • TV show filmed at Ball’s Falls
    “Location manager Greg McMaster said the period element adds an extra challenge. There can’t be anything that looks like it’s post-1897 in the shots, such as street lights and concrete. ‘A set like Ball’s Falls is ideal because it’s eliminated most of that already,’ McMaster said.” Read more.

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.
