Murdoch Mysteries is a Canadian drama series produced by Shaftesbury Films. It was developed by R.B. Carney, Cal Coons, and Alexandra Zarowny and based on the characters in the Detective Murdoch series of novels written by Maureen Jennings. The first five seasons were broadcast in Canada on Citytv with the show moving to CBC for an encore of season five and continuing with seasons six, seven and eight.[1] Prior to the television series, Shaftesbury Films and CHUM Television produced three made for TV movies which were shown on the Canadian cable channel Bravo! in 2004 and 2005. Peter Outerbridge portrayed Detective Murdoch in the movies, along with Keeley Hawes as Doctor Odgen, Matthew MacFadzean as George Crabtree, and Colm Meaney as Inspector Brackenreid.[2] In the United States, the show is titled The Artful Detective.

The show stars Yannick Bisson as William Murdoch, a police detective working in Toronto, Ontario in the 1890s who makes use of what was then modern forensic science to solve crimes. Each episode revolves around one or more explicit historical references to an actual 19th century person, invention, event, or book. Working with Detective Murdoch are Constable George Crabtree (Jonny Harris), coroner Doctor Julia Ogden (Hélène Joy), and Inspector Brackenreid (Thomas Craig).

In July 2007, Shaftesbury Films announced that filming had begun on a 13 episode series based on Maureen Jennings' novels and the TV movies and that it was to be shown on Bravo! in 2008.[3] The changes in media ownership in 2007 resulted in Bravo! being owned by CTVglobemedia and Murdoch Mysteries going to Rogers Communications, who put the show on their recently acquired CityTV network. On March 17, 2017, CBC renewed the show for an eleventh season, which will consist of 18 episodes and a third two-hour Christmas special.[citation needed]

Then a murder victim is discovered, vindicating Tess, and a second body – tortured to death – is also found.

When Murdoch realizes that the murder victim was not a priest but an impostor and that he had a criminal history, the case takes on a more earthly footing. When the true source of Sister Catherine's angelic messages eventually becomes clear, it uncovers a love triangle of deceit and revenge. Then Murdoch receives the shock of his life when Susannah confesses to the murder. That isn't the only secret she's been keeping from him.

April 26, 2011 (April 26, 2011) August 17, 2011

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.

A series of brazen daylight bank robberies by an amorous, dashing masked man who steals from the banks to give to the poor sends Detective Murdoch on an unpopular chase. The thief has become a hero to the citizenry, thanks in no small part to Toronto Gazette reporter Paddy Glynn whose articles have raised the bandit to near Robin Hood status.

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.
