Storyline

Set in the gritty back streets of 1890s Toronto, Detective William Murdoch employs the latest in forensic science to solve the city's most gruesome murders. While his superior, Inspector Brackenreid, doubts the validity of Murdoch's methods -such as fingerprints, he finds allies in Dr. Julia Ogden and Constable George Crabtree. Through his investigations, Murdoch is also drawn closer to the street-smart prostitute, Ettie Weston... The series encompasses three dark and twisting feature-length episodes: "Except the Dying," "Poor Tom Is Cold," and "Under the Dragon's Tail." Written by L. Hamre

A commendable effort
19 May 2004 | by bobuddSee all my reviews

A commendable effort on behalf of the director and producers. somewhat similar to the Great Detective Series from a few decade back.

This is what we need, more quality mysteries from any period in time, made in CANADA. about CANADA.

Took me sometime to fathom out that the story was set in Toronto, and still unsure about the time frame. I suspect that the piece was set somewhere around 1900.

Which would have made it somewhat dubious that a Woman Coroner would have been there.

But who am I to knock a very good mystery.

Everybody knows that the Brit's are the tops in this area of TV, but now we have some good shows of our own, DaVinci's Inquest, Cold Squad, Blue Murder, Lets keep them coming.
