Before the hit television series Murdoch Mysteries, the same characters appeared in these feature-length adaptations of Maureen Jennings's beloved novels. In gritty 1890s Toronto, Detective William Murdoch uses new forensic techniques to solve the murders of a young chambermaid, a colleague on the force, and a backstreet abortionist. With the help of the beguiling coroner Dr. Julia Ogden, Murdoch sifts through the evidence, looking for even the smallest clue. This isn't always easy for the principled and empathetic detective, especially when his superior, Inspector Brakenreid, is constantly at his heels to close the case quickly. Along the way, Murdoch develops a bittersweet bond with Ettie, a tempting-but-taboo prostitute who acts as a police informant. Featuring guest stars William B. Davis and Helene Joy, these award-winning mysteries follow Murdoch on his quest to restore order and justice to his community and expose the dark side of the Victorian era.
