Storyline

Det. Murdoch investigates the disappearance of Monique Poirier, a young French woman who was in Toronto visiting her sister Sophie. She had returned to her room at the hotel to get her camera but then just vanished into thin air. Also in town is a handsome young police Inspector from France, Marcel Guillaume, also looking for someone. They first suspect Sophie's husband, Roderick Dalewood, but photos suggest his own sexual appetites lay elsewhere. The case is further complicated when they find the body of a young woman in a steamer trunk, badly burned with acid. Murdoch has a new way of getting a photograph sent to him by wire. Insp. Brackenreid meanwhile is approached by a group of businessmen to run for city council. There is a price however for his support. Written by garykmcd

Great acting, I wish the stories were > believable
24 October 2012 | by itrofimovaSee all my reviews

Good: great acting for all small and big roles, but big roles especially; great take of social issues and the historic gap between values of 2 centuries - probably the only 2 reason why I am watching it; costumes, decoration, operator work, attention to historical details is OK and often fine.

Bad: background street scenery is often sloppy and repetitive; all good female characters look like Polish Jews, slim, with narrow lips and chins, all bad female characters have wide faces, and often are overweight. Last season included other races, but they still looked the same - narrow lips and chins...; stories around great names belong to some comedy show, but not to the show about real person;

the attribution of great scientific talent to a detective is fine, but, please, no human is so talented that he could jump from invention of an idea to making an application-device over night and even over an year without working 24 hours in technical invention workshop all his life, and even so most of talented guys didn't make it. Such a sloppy and simplified take on science makes a point to an audience how uneducated Canadians might be that they think it is so easy to implement the ideas from physics. If the show is a comedy, then it should be advertised like this, but it would lose a credibility about social issues.
