The eighth season of Murdoch Mysteries will receive its UK premiere on Alibi on Monday January 26th at 9pm, it has been announced.
Based on the series of novels by Maureen Jennings, Murdoch Mysteries is set at the turn of the 20th century and revolves around Detective William Murdoch of the Toronto constabulary, who uses ground-breaking forensic techniques to close his cases. The drama series is produced by Canadian production company Shaftesbury Films in association with UKTV, CBC & ITV Studios Global Entertainment and stars Yannick Bisson, Thomas Craig, Helene Joy, Jonny Harris and Georgina Reilly.
The show’s eighth season, which like season seven runs an extended length of eighteen episodes, is poised the address the cliff-hanger ending from the season seven finale, which saw Inspector Brackenreid (Thomas Craig) beaten unconscious in the streets of Toronto. The show will also air its landmark 100th episode this season, but will wedding bells finally ring for William and Julia?
