Preview: Murdoch Mysteries taps into murder

First of all, thank you to everyone who took the time to reach out and voice your pleasure for my recent interview with Murdoch Mysteries star and executive producer, Yannick Bisson. It’s always fun to catch up and talk shop with him and I know fans love reading his thoughts on the show we all love.

Now, on to Monday’s new instalment! Here’s what the CBC has revealed regarding “One Minute to Murder,” written by Murdoch Mysteries book Maureen Jennings and directed by Mars Horodyski.

When a man is electrocuted during a typing contest with Crabtree and Louise Cherry, Murdoch suspects the reporter was the intended target.

And here are a few more tidbits from me after I watched a screener of the episode.

Oliver Dennis guest stars
Oliver Dennis may not be a household name for his television work but he’s known in theatre circles. I’ve been lucky enough to see him in Soulpepper productions of Parfumerie, High Life and A Christmas Carol. Dennis appears on Monday night in the role of Alexander Langston, creator of an electric typewriter that several folks, including Crabtree and Louise Cherry, try out. Keep your eyes peeled for fellow theatre veterans Andrew Musselman and Richard Waugh in guest roles too.

Louise Cherry returns to cause trouble
Try as I might, I just can’t warm up to Miss Cherry. Maybe it’s because she said those awful things about William and Julia or perhaps it’s because she’s always reporting privileged information to the public … either way I just can’t get in her corner, even if it appears she was targeted for murder.

William and Julia’s book is published
Unlike most folks who must wait years until their book is in print, Julia and William’s tome was penned, edited and bound in mere weeks.

Murdoch Mysteries airs Mondays at 8 p.m. on CBC and on CBC Gem.

“I have a lot of respect for Louise’s career focus. I love how driven, and maybe a little bit pushy, she is. In terms of being passionate about what we do we are the same. It will also be revealed in later episodes that we have some surprising cultural similarities. Can’t really elaborate, you’ll just have to watch!” Continue reading.

“It was a very collaborative effort and evolution from start to finish. Simon’s writing of Watts was fantastic, and very rewarding to be able to bring to life. He created this character with many quirks and peculiar opinions but they all felt grounded in a believable and playable reality.” Continue reading.
