The tenth season of Murdoch Mysteries will receive its UK premiere on UKTV’s Alibi channel on Monday January 2nd 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 and Jonny Harris.
The show’s tenth season opens with a two-part episode set in the world of Toronto debutantes, whose coming out is interrupted by the 1904 Great Fire of Toronto, one of the seminal events in the city’s history. Later in the season, Murdoch and the rest of Station Four find themselves embroiled in cases both fantastical and historical. From a murder involving the Olympic Champion Canadian soccer team, an investigation into a man wrongfully jailed, the introduction of H.P. Lovecraft (the master of the macabre), a wronged woman who goes on a serial killing spree, to the death of a prize pooch at a dog show, there is very little rest for Murdoch, Ogden, Brackenreid, Crabtree, James and the rest of Station Four.
