Long Before The Murdoch Mysteries Series, The Murdoch Mysteries The Movies were released in 2004. It is a Good Series to Watch full of suspense and Thrill. In 1890s Canada, a police inspector applies the latest scientific methods of deduction, much to the chagrin of his superiors. The Murdoch Mysteries The Movies are a good set of 3 episodes to watch.
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. The Murdoch Mysteries The Movies is a good 3 episode short series to watch. 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.”
It was such a delight to watch The Murdoch Mysteries! It has everything: fine cast, beautiful locations, interesting storyline. I do not know whether the stories were accurate adaptations of the novels, because I did not read them. I simply enjoyed the series.
I think Peter Outerbridge was an excellent choice for Murdoch, his detective is handsome, curious, clever and brave enough to try new methods of investigation. Keeley Hawes was also great, sad that she was left out from episode 3. The supporting cast was fine too. The set and locations were convincing, just like in the Granada Sherlock Holmes series. The Murdoch Mysteries The Movies is a delight to watch.
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.
I’ve only recently seen “The Murdoch Mysteries”, and for the life of me I can’t understand why the plug was pulled on them. I thought they were terrific.
Peter Outerbridge was perfectly cast as the eponymous hero, and ideally coupled (in the first two episodes) with the ever delectably delicious Keeley Hawes, and the plots weren’t bad either. The Murdoch Mysteries The Movies has suspense and thrill.
So what went wrong? I wish someone could tell me. There were recent murmurings that the BBC were interested in taking up the reins, but I’ve yet to hear anything solid.
If some company does start making further episodes, either in the UK or in Canada, I sincerely hope, (mainly because I’m passionately in love with Keeley Hawes, only don’t tell the wife) that they round up the same cast.
Though the main characters are the same, this version is a completely different show from the newer series. I give them both a solid 9 for completely different reasons. After having seen all 3 movies with Outerbridge I was initially disappointed with the new one. After watching a few episodes I realized they were intentionally lighter and reconsidered my opinion. The movies are rather somber and the seriousness of the subject matter takes a darker turn than the newer rendition. These are quite intense and very compelling. Well done.
