Storyline

Set in the gritty back streets of 1890s Toronto, Detective William Murdoch employs the latest in forensic science to solve the city's most gruesome murders. While his superior, Inspector Brackenreid, doubts the validity of Murdoch's methods -such as fingerprints, he finds allies in Dr. Julia Ogden and Constable George Crabtree. Through his investigations, Murdoch is also drawn closer to the street-smart prostitute, Ettie Weston... The series encompasses three dark and twisting feature-length episodes: "Except the Dying," "Poor Tom Is Cold," and "Under the Dragon's Tail." Written by L. Hamre

Ugly
6 April 2017 | by rjbarber-06716See all my reviews

Murdoch and Ogden are good characters. The mysteries in and of themselves are intriguing and enjoyable, and there is a wee bit of humor. However, many, perhaps most of the characters and their dialog is ugly. Perhaps this is realistic, but I prefer movies that build me up, not gross me out. Much of the casting and acting was mediocre.
