Rich with invention, humour and drama, Murdoch Mysteries returns for a ninth season set in the intriguing world of the methodical and dashing detective William Murdoch (Yannick Bisson).
Pioneering innovative forensic techniques to solve Toronto's most gruesome murders at the dawn of the 20th century, the maverick detective and his team continue to push the boundaries of science as they solve the unsolvable, referencing key issues of the time and weaving real-life historical figures into each investigation.
Season 9 begins in 1903, with Detective Murdoch and team still reeling over the arrest of Constable George Crabtree (Jonny Harris). Then a shocking death brings great change to the world of Station No. 4.
Through it all, Murdoch and his colleagues continue to solve the unsolvable, coming face-to-face with everything from an impossible bank robbery to a threat to destroy Canada, confronting each case with wit, wisdom and innovation.
The team also welcomes a new addition, Rebecca James (Mouna Traoré), a recent arrival in Toronto and young woman of humble origins who Dr.Ogden takes under her wing.
The season also upholds the tradition of bringing historical figures to Toronto, featuring: Mark Twain (special guest star William Shatner - Star Trek, Boston Legal), Lucy Maud Montgomery and Prime Minister Wilfred Laurier.
Murdoch Mysteries is produced by Shaftesbury in association with ITV Studios Global Entertainment.
