Murdoch Mysteries, the period crime drama based on Maureen Jennings’ novels, returns to Alibi next month for its sixth series.
In the season opener, Detective Murdoch witnesses firsthand the early days of mechanical airplane flight as he delves into a high-flying, high-level conspiracy.
Later in the season, as well as facing new challenges in his relationship with Dr. Julia Ogden (Hélène Joy), he will try to clear the name of a young Winston Churchill (Thomas Howes; Downton Abbey) after his visit to Toronto goes awry; work to stop a dangerous madman from unleashing a deadly toxic gas attack; visit a community of naturists; and encounter a ghostly presence in Queen’s Park.
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle also makes an appearance when his supposedly fictional creation, Sherlock Holmes, becomes entangled in a violent robbery.
The season ends with the shocking murder of someone in Murdoch’s circle, and the prime suspect is someone even closer to him.
Monday 4th February at 9pm (Sky 132, Virgin 130).
