Comments and queries for the week of May 24

I started watching my first episode about five years ago, thinking it was a new series only to find out I was wrong. I loved it so much I went back to Season 1 to be caught up. I hope it doesn’t end soon. Thanks for Season 13 and all your hard work on all the seasons. God bless you all including all the crew, staff and cast. —Dee

A fantastic show. It’s great to see the history of the late 19th century and early 20th century. Keep up the great work; can’t wait for Season 13. —Michael

I live in the suburbs of Detroit, Michigan, and I get to see this wonderful show every Monday night at 8 o’clock. It is by far the best show on TV. The only one that I liked as much was NYPD Blue and that’s gone. Thank you for another season. —Juneann

I lived in downtown Galt when they were filming Season 10. I went to watch and got talking to some diehard fans. I told them I hadn’t seen it. [One] said YOU’VE GOT TO WATCH IT. So I went home and binge-watched nine seasons. I was hooked. One of the best and my most favourite shows. I hope it goes for a few more years. —Phyllis

I love Murdoch Mysteries. Best show on TV. Love seeing episodes filmed in Galt. I lived there. A few episodes filmed a few blocks from the house my daughter was born in. Kids have been excited to see places they have played as little ones on the show. —Trish

I am so happy to see that there will be a Season 13. I enjoy watching the show, glued to the television each week. Please continue. —Marie

Lucky 13! Cameras roll on Season 13 of #1 Canadian drama Murdoch Mysteries for CBC and UKTV

From a media release:

Shaftesbury announced today that #1 Canadian drama* MURDOCH MYSTERIES has begun production on Season 13, for CBC and UKTV, distributed by ITV STUDIOS Global Entertainment. With 18 new one-hour episodes, Season 13 will see the beloved series celebrate its 200th episode. Starring Yannick Bisson, Hélène Joy, Jonny Harris, and Thomas Craig, the internationally acclaimed series averaged 1.1 million viewers each week on CBC in Season 12,** and in the U.K. remains one of Alibi’s top-performing shows. MURDOCH MYSTERIES Season 13 will film on location in Ontario until November 2019, and premiere on CBC this fall, with international dates to follow.

With personal and professional changes for some of the Station House No. 4 team last year, Season 13 will continue to explore new developments in the lives of Detective William Murdoch (Bisson), Dr. Julia Ogden (Joy), Inspector Thomas Brackenreid (Craig), Constables George Crabtree (Harris) and Henry Higgins-Newsome (Lachlan Murdoch), and Detective Llewelyn Watts (Daniel Maslany) as they tackle Toronto’s toughest mysteries, from the serious and historic to the comical and unusual. Returning cast also include Shanice Banton, Arwen Humphreys, and Siobhan Murphy. Season 13 guest stars include Colm Feore (The Umbrella AcademyHouse of Cards) and Claire Goose (The CoronerCasualty).

Yannick Bisson returns to the director’s chair for a Season 13 episode. Other episodes will be directed by showrunner Peter Mitchell, Harvey Crossland, Gary Harvey, Mars Horodyski, Sherren Lee, Mina Shum, and Craig David Wallace. Season 13 episodes are written by Mitchell, Paul Aitken, Noelle Girard, Maureen Jennings, Simon McNabb, Mary Pedersen, and Dan Trotta.

One of Canada’s most successful and longest-running dramas, MURDOCH MYSTERIES (13 seasons; 207 total episodes – 204 x one-hour episodes, 3 x two-hour specials) has become a staple for CBC and broadcasters around the world with its winning formula that brings together compelling mysteries, unique slices of turn-of-the-century history, ingenious inventions and personal moments for each character. The series is licensed to broadcasters in 150+ countries and territories including the U.S., U.K., France, Finland and China.

The MURDOCH MYSTERIES brand continues to grow and evolve – brand licensing deals include an all-ages immersive game experience, The Murdoch Mysteries Escape Series, a collaboration between Shaftesbury and Company & Co. that launched in early 2017 in Toronto, and recently relocated to historic Casa Loma in Toronto.

MURDOCH MYSTERIES is based on Maureen Jennings’s popular Detective Murdoch series of novels and premiered in Canada in January 2008.

MURDOCH MYSTERIES is executive produced by Christina Jennings, Scott Garvie, Yannick Bisson, Hélène Joy, and Peter Mitchell, who also serves as showrunner, and produced by Stephen Montgomery and Julie Lacey.

Comments and queries for the week of April 19

Not sure how Murdoch Mysteries can get any better, but it does, season after season. I see a maturity in it, not as many dark episodes, yet they all have extreme depth. I thought the goony Halloween episode was great … I love how they throw the comedy in. I really hope this show lives on forever … I NEVER tire of the characters. We know the characters so well, at least we think we do, and then you throw us some curveballs as a reminder to never take anything for granted. I say BRAVO!!!!!! —Janet

Great season, not the best but engaging. Love the medical history as a health professional it’s fascinating. Definitely, time for the Murdochs to welcome a child by hook or crook. And hope John B. hasn’t been written out of the show; he could use his new career as a setting for more theatrical murders!! Keep producing this program!!! —David

Addicted to Murdoch Mysteries. We have enjoyed each season, but some more than others. Hated to see Dr. Grace depart in such a way never to return. Season 11 was the least enjoyable, but a very good rebound with Season 12. I would like to see the final season being one of closure so as to bid these wonderful characters farewell. I too would like to see John remain a presence in the series. There can be no show without George, he is a delight and is as important as Murdoch for the success of the show. We live in the U.S.A. and subscribe to Acorn TV and do so just to watch Murdoch Mysteries. I would like to see Julia return to the morgue, to join Murdoch in crime solving. She and Miss James were a good combination. —Diane
