Based on novels by Maureen Jennings, "Murdoch Mysteries" follows young detective William Murdoch. In a series of stories taking place in Toronto during the 1890s and early 1900s, several challenging murder cases arise. Murdoch uses up-and-coming forensics techniques and an unconventional approach, which often elicit skepticism from his fellow officers and his boss. Coroner Julia Ogden becomes Murdoch's number one ally, and they make a top-notch team, but he must struggle against tradition and prejudice to solve some of the city's most-gruesome murders.
The eighth season has some of the show’s better episodes, but it may not be the best place for newcomers to start watching the series. Several episodes refer to cases from previous years, and in one of the season’s best episodes, several female killers from earlier episodes are all brought together in an insane asylum, which would spoil at least four mysteries for people who haven’t seen past seasons. "Murdoch Mysteries"’ eighth season shows that the series still has lots of potential and manages to blend humor and mystery with plenty of sly winks and a refusal to take itself too seriously.--Chris Chan, Strand Magazine, October 6, 2015
