Cutting-edge Victorian science meets cunningly plotted mystery in this “stylish period thriller” (The Globe and Mail). In the 1890s, Detective William Murdoch adopts modern techniques like “finger marks” and forensics to track Toronto’s most sinister killers. Though derided by his skeptical boss, Murdoch finds friends and allies in a lovely pathologist and an eager-to-learn constable. Along the way they cross paths with some of the era’s most famous figures, including Nikola Tesla, Arthur Conan Doyle, and Prince Alfred.

Splendid Victorian Police Drama
Loved the first season. Why wasn't this show listed in iTunes years ago? On to downloading season two.
Too simple and contrived
While the plots are interesting, they are too simple. The situations seem contrived and the characters seem stiff. To make up for the rather listless settings, famous characters and sensitive issues (in those days) such as homosexuality and women's rights are thrown in - often gratuitously.
I love this show, it has a different feeling than the books that it is based on but the cases and characters are interesting.
