‘Murdoch Mysteries’ Season 13 Adds Colm Feore & Claire Goose In Guest Roles

Colm Feore (The Umbrella Academy, House Of Cards) and Claire Goose (The Coroner, Casualty) have been tapped for guest starring roles on the thirteenth season of Murdoch Mysteries.

There is no word on the nature of the characters they will be playing. Production on the show’s eighteen-episode thirteenth season is now underway in Ontario, and is expected to wrap in November. Season 13 will air on CBC in Canada later this year and is expected to premiere on UKTV’s Alibi channel in early 2020.

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, which is based on the novels by Maureen Jennings, is produced by Shaftesbury in association with CBC, ITV Studios Global Entertainment and UKTV.

Returning cast members include Yannick Bisson as Detective William Murdoch, Thomas Craig as Inspector Thomas Brackenreid, Helene Joy as Dr. Julia Ogden, Jonny Harris as Constable George Crabtree, Lachlan Murdoch as Constable Henry Higgins-Newsome and Daniel Maslany as Detective Llewelyn Watts. Shanice Banton, Arwen Humphreys and Siobhan Murphy are on-board to reprise their roles as Violet Hart, Margaret Brackenreid and Ruth Higgins-Newsome, respectively.

“Murdoch Mysteries continues to draw passionate audiences in Canada and around the world – a testament to the talented team in front of and behind the camera. We’re thrilled to deliver more of the mysteries and characters viewers love as we head into production on our thirteenth season,” said Christina Jennings, Shatesbury Chairman & CEO, who also serves as an executive producer on the show alongside Scott Garvie, Yannick Bisson, Hélène Joy, and Peter Mitchell/
