About the show
Murdoch Mysteries (also known under its alternative title The Artful Detective) is a popular Canadian mystery, crime and period drama TV show which is currently being aired on the CBC channel in Canada. The period crime drama was developed by R.B. Carney, Cal Coons and Alexandra Zarowny based on the characters from Maureen Jennings novels. A creative collaboration between Shaftesbury Films, Rogers Media (seasons 1–5), UKTV and ITV Studios Global Entertainment, the crime drama show was first released in Canada on January 20, 2008 on the City channel where it ran for 5 seasons before moving to the CBC channel where it is currently airing its 9th chapter.
The storyline unfolds on the streets of Toronto of the late 19th century. The victims of unusual and mysterious murders in this city are Canadian businessmen, scientists, judges and other residents. The investigator of such crimes is Detective Murdoch (played by Yannick Bisson) from the police station No.4. Thanks to the inquisitive mind and the use of the new science of criminology, Murdoch has always been able to solve crimes and find the offenders. The court physician Jane Ogden (Hélène Joy) is helping him as well. She is an energetic young woman, who has been successfully conducting medical examinations. Many famous historical figures are engaged in the investigations: Nikola Tesla, Jack London, Harry Houdini and others.
