Murdoch Mysteries returns to Alibi
Mondays at 9pm
20th February 2013

UKTV’s Alibi is thrilled at the success of 19th century crime show, Murdoch Mysteries.  The brand new and exclusive sixth series airs on Alibi on Mondays at 9pm (Sky 132, Virgin 130).

Based on Maureen Jennings' series of hit novels, Murdoch Mysteries is a one-hour drama set in Toronto in the late 1890s and early 1900s during the age of invention, where methodical and dashing Detective William Murdoch (Yannick Bisson) enlists radical new forensic techniques like fingerprinting, ultraviolet light and trace evidence to solve some of the city’s most gruesome murders.

So far in the series, Detective Murdoch has delved into a high-flying, high-level conspiracy, and endeavoured to clear the name of a young Winston Churchill (Thomas Howes; Downton Abbey) after he is left as the prime suspect of the slaying of a veteran of a brutal North African battle.

Episode 4, which airs on Monday 25th February, sees Murdoch pursue a murderous gang of armed robbers, with his prime suspect being a man claiming to be famed fictional detective, Sherlock Holmes. A bizarre series of occurrences leads to the appearance of Arthur Conan Doyle (Geraint Wyn Davies) to provide some answers in the case, and a faceoff ensues between the author and his creation.

Later in the season, as well as facing new challenges in his relationship with Dr. Julia Ogden (Hélène Joy) Detective Murdoch will 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. The season ends with the shocking murder of someone in Murdoch’s circle, and the prime suspect is someone even closer to him.

Take a look at some of the upcoming action here:
