    Best TV Forensics and Police Show EVER

    I can't imagine what the other reviewers are thinking, but this is one of the most inventive, historically fictionalized, ever produced for TV, even Canadian TV. Yannick Bisson beautifully portrays Detective Murdoch, soft yet strict with the law, vulnerable in his feelings for Dr. Ogden and, later Edna. There is the strict, old-school Inspector (Murdoch's super) who is not formally educated and, therefore, can't understand Murdoch's scientific and mathematical brain coupled with his deductive reasoning; but he understands that he always solves the truly brutal murders--so, he tolerates him initially and later comes to appreciate him.

    In an unusual role, Dr. Ogden (Helene Joy) is not only a physician in late 19th Century Toronto, but a female pathologist to boot. Brilliant at her work and slowing falling in and out of love with Murdoch.

    Other than Murdoch, my favorite character is grunt-working Constable George Crabtree. George wants so much to be a detective but we are told that the lack of a formal education holds him back--even though in one episode when Murdoch was injured, he took the role of Acting Detective and solved a murder on his own. He just doesn't possess Murdoch's insightful visions described by Murdoch that thoughts and solutions sometimes just come to him. He is ever faithful and very mindful of his position but many times speaks too much "outside the box incorrectly."

    This is a must-see series. Four seasons have been completed and I am sure and hope that it runs for another 4+ seasons.
