Murdoch Mysteries

"All the cases are based on true ones," says author Maureen Jennings, who reads all scripts and makes suggestions. "A murder case in those days was really sensational – it sold a lot of newspapers.

Set in Victorian Toronto, Detective William Murdoch struggles to solves murders using rudimentary forensic techniques.

This series is based on the novels by author Maureen Jennings , who says, "The thing is, Murdoch is considered slightly crazy by the establishment. He's a forensics expert when the field was only beginning to be developed.

``He uses the new discovery of fingerprints. In other ways he's stymied – at the time there was no blood-typing. He had a microscope but not a modern type. He was literally feeling his way, developing his own methods for catching criminals."
