ML's Worth a Watch: Murdoch Mysteries

Today I would like to share with you one of my favourite television shows. Since cancelling our cable package well over a year ago, there are only a couple of shows I made a point to keep up with. One of those shows is called Murdoch Mysteries.

Adapted from a series of books by Maureen Jennings, Murdoch Mysteries follows a detective in the late 1800's - early 1900's Toronto. It was originally aired as a 2 part made for television movie in 2004 and was picked up as a series in 2008 on City TV. It ran on this channel until 2013 when it was moved to CBC.

The 9th season of Murdoch Mysteries is currently airs Monday night at 8 PM, E.S.T.

It features a wonderful cast of characters ranging from the handsome Yannick Bisson as Detective Murdoch himself and comedian Jonny Harris as Constable Crabtree. It has also been host to many guest stars portraying public figures from the time period. Most recently William Shatner guest starred as Mark Twain.

Here is a preview of the current season:
