I can’t wait to see your show Shawn. You are a gifted soul. I am blessed to know you!! HUGE HUGS. —Jean
“Rigid Silence” is one of the best episodes so far in Season 13. The jail gangs and the Bell Telephone strike were both powerful storylines. Margaret’s response to Nomi and Thomas was perfect. —Mary
An episode worthy of the Murdoch Mysteries episodes that did not disappoint in the earlier seasons. I always hoped that Chief Constable Giles would return. Nigel Bennett is excellent in the role, even if, in this episode he is a bit worn out from years in prison. I hope William and Julia will be able to help him. An episode I truly enjoy! —Noele
