There was never a dull moment in the life of Detective Murdoch and his company. With their creativity and mindfulness, they solve Toronto’s most unusual secrets. In season 13, we took a look at some of Murdoch’s innovations, such as the viewfinder, which was designed to match a person’s facial features with existing police records. This season, Violet Hart (Shannis Bunton) continues to raise suspicion from Detective Murdoch, who cannot be trusted to believe his abilities or intentions.
There’s a new addition to the police department, Special Officer Robert Parker (Mark Sr.), who has a bleak past as a murder suspect. Season 14 followed the usual series pattern until 1908, which took us to the new year with each season. The series will continue to borrow fragments from Maureen Jennings’ novels and bring us a more interesting case where Murdoch and his team changed their brain skills.
