Murdoch Mysteries.svg

Murdoch Mysteries is a Canadian mystery drama television series that began in 2008. The series is based on the Detective Murdoch novels by Maureen Jennings, and is set in Toronto around the turn of the 20th century. It centres on William Murdoch (Yannick Bisson), a detective at Station House Four, who solves crimes using scientific techniques and inventions which are highly advanced for the time (e.g. fingerprinting). He is assisted by Constable George Crabtree (Jonny Harris), city coroner Doctor Julia Ogden (Hélène Joy), and Inspector Thomas Brackenreid (Thomas Craig). The show was developed for television by R.B. Carney, Cal Coons, and Alexandra Zarowny, and is produced by Shaftesbury Films.

The series was preceded by three television movies, which aired on Bravo! from 2004 to 2005. These featured a different cast: Peter Outerbridge as Murdoch, Keeley Hawes as Doctor Ogden, Matthew MacFadzean as Constable Crabtree, and Colm Meaney as Inspector Brackenreid.[1]

Murdoch Mysteries aired on Citytv for five seasons before being cancelled.[2] It was then picked up by CBC, where it has aired since season six.[3] The show airs in the UK on Alibi, and is co-produced by Alibi's parent company, UKTV. It has also aired in the United States on Ovation under the title The Artful Detective, but as of season twelve, as reverted to the original title.

As of January 7, 2019, 189 episodes of Murdoch Mysteries have aired, including three specials.

Teleplay by : Paul Aitken, Graham Clegg, Phil Bedard and Larry Lalonde
April 26, 2011 (2011-04-26)
When a young schoolgirl is found dead of an apparent drowning and blood loss, Detective Murdoch finds himself in the midst of the late 19th century vampire craze created by the recent publication of Bram Stoker's Dracula. Constable Crabtree is convinced that a vampire is responsible for the murder, earning him the wrath of Inspector Brackenreid. The facts fit Crabtree's theory, even more so when Murdoch discovers that three other schoolgirls met with a mystery man and bear mysterious bite marks on their necks. Toronto Gazette reporter Paddy Glynn stirs up a public outcry and soon, reports of vampires are rolling in from all over the city. Even Julia is swept up by Stoker's tale of forbidden sexuality, struggling to control her yearning for Murdoch despite her engagement to Darcy, but when another schoolgirl is attacked, Murdoch uncovers the identity of the mystery man and the motive behind his deadly quest for blood. Is this man a killer? The answer to that question is found in the realms of youthful lust and jealousy.

Meanwhile, Ruby Ogden, surprises Dr. Ogden by arriving in town to assist with – and then take over – Julia's wedding planning. It also becomes clear that Ruby has doubts that her sister is marrying the right man. As Murdoch struggles with the idea of Julia's impending nuptials, he also has to deal with a thief who seems to anticipate his every move, but when a beautiful bank employee is murdered in cold blood during a robbery, Murdoch has to rethink his approach... before more people are killed.
