Detective William Murdoch (Yannick Bisson) and Dr. Julia Ogden (Helene Joy) are. The William-Julia relationship, often referred to by MM fans as Jilliam or Willia and more recently Julliam, (while the cast and crew call them Julia and Murdoch .
Over six seasons, the writers have toyed and teased with the scenario, but Julia even married another man. Bisson and Joy certainly share a strong chemistry and all that heat may finally pay off.
It's a difficult time, so we're trying to start again. In the meantime, Gillies still hasn't been tried. Then we have a new character, one of Darcy's relatives, coming into play.
The sale of her house can't happen. Things get tripped up, so there are always issues that keep us more reserved. Of course, there's going to be major complications down the track.
Everyone wants to hear we get together, but I always say to them, 'Do you really, though? It's not going to be easy. A cunning and calculating criminal, he always appears one step ahead of Murdoch. Their last encounter left Julia's husband dead, and even though Gillies was captured and locked away, the cast feels it's virtually impossible to keep a worthy opponent down. It's very much a part of storytelling.
More of James Gillies? Having Murdoch not always catching the guy, or not yet, is compelling storytelling. I quite enjoy it. That need for closure can claw away at a person. It would be an amazing thing to confront him that way. She's often not able to be at the front lines in that respect, but he deserves it. I have no doubt that Gillies will be back on some level or another.
Maybe then I can take him on full force. Even though Murdoch Mysteries transpires in the Victorian era, Murdoch still manages to grab seemingly random items and transform them into high-tech devices or gizmos for that time period. Part of the show's charm is guessing which new contraption or historical figure will pop by next We have our entire history to draw from. There's always something happening, some new advent or some new interesting development.
But how they manage to tie it back to Murdoch's world is so cool. We could continue for a while before it loses its lustre. That intersects Murdoch's world.
We can expect to see James Pendrick Peter Stebbings back. I'm really looking forward to that. And one of the things we'll be talking about this year is the assassination of President McKinley. She's become an integral member of the sleuthing gang.
Gradually, viewers have learned about Julia's passion for the job and the causes she champions. It's too early for Joy to divulge which nuggets we'll learn about Julia, but the actress is hoping the denizens in writers' room will flesh out specific avenues. Kitchen is kept bound and gagged while the criminals search her house for the missing loot.
In "The Knockdown", Murdoch investigates the murder of a black prizefighter on the night he defeated a local white boxer. In "Murdoch of the Living Dead", several men whose brains have been damaged by Dr.
Luther Bates's experiments run amuck in the streets of Toronto, causing property damage and threatening innocent bystanders. The Constabulary subdues them all with fishing and dogcatching equipment. William and Julia go through one or two before they finally get together for good. George begins courting Nina Bloom, a dancer at the local burlesque house, and they begin a budding relationship.
However when she mistakenly believes George is growing interested in Louise Cherry, she decides to break things off so he can pursue a relationship with a respectable woman. However in season 10, George comes to realize that it was really Nina he loved, and after breaking things off with Louise in "Hell To Pay," he seeks out Nina. In "Marked Twain", Higgins pulls rank on a recently demoted Crabtree by instructing him to interview a suspect who lives ten miles out of town.
Crabtree consoles himself by suggesting he can get a look at an attractive woman who lives nearby, which inspires Higgins to pull rank again and conduct the interview himself. Often for poor Inspector Brackenreid.

Julia, in "Murdoch in Toyland".
Murdoch manages to rescue her in time. In Season 8, Lillian Moss is added as a female love interest for Dr. Early in Season 9, Lillian is murdered - days before she and Dr. Grace were supposed to leave for London. It is revealed that she had an earlier relationship with a married woman, and was killed by the woman's husband.
Detective William Murdoch and his wife Julia apparently cannot have their honeymoon in New York without unveiling a conspiracy "Murdoch Takes Manhattan" or go camping in the countryside without stumbling onto a murdered corpse right next to their tent "Brakenreid Boudoir". And Inspector Brackenreid going fishing with his sons just ends up with pulling a cadaver from the river "Murdoch and the Temple of Death".
The Butler Did It: Played with in the episode "Downstairs, Upstairs". The butler proves to have an alibi for the murder of his employer, but he knows who did it and suffocated his late employer's mother to keep her from revealing that information.
Various officers take this role: Murdoch himself is very devoted to following evidence and doing a thorough job of investigating.
Inspector Brackenreid will occasionally criticize him for this, saying things like, "I know you have only two speeds, Murdoch: Brackenreid himself will take a stand on regulations and the law when one of Murdoch's new-fangled methods seems to push the limit, or when Murdoch is taking a long time to do his job. He'll mention habeas corpus if someone is in custody too long without a charge.
Percival Giles, particularly when interacting with Murdoch and Brackenreid. After the escape of Ava Moon, he is routinely critical of Murdoch and Brackenreid's methods. When they go to another jurisdiction and remove a corpse back to Toronto, he insists they return the body to the other department and write letters of apology to the other cops and coroner.
In "Murdoch of the Klondike", Murdoch has left behind his job as a Toronto police detective having released a murderess who was wronged by the justice system years earlier, in part due to his scrupulous honesty and is prospecting in the Klondike.
During the long summer night, he's sitting at a campfire with another prospector who comments on the hour it's about one o'clock in the morningand they have this exchange: What do you think, mister? What do you think's worse, endless day or neverending night? It would depend on your state of mind, I suppose. The day can consume your thoughts. The night, your thoughts consume you. Murdoch has left Toronto after releasing murder Ava Moon from jail having given up his urban police career to pan for gold.
His appearance and even speech patterns are more those of a scruffy cowboy than an articulate urban man. He camps near his claim and goes to town with the other miners, where he learns of the arrest of a hotel owner for murder. The investigation in "All That Glitters" leads to one of these, with Murdoch easily returning to his lumberjack and miner garb to Crabtree's astonishmentwhile Crabtree is the urban Fish out of Waterbringing his own pillow from home and overreacting to the sounds of wildlife in the night.
Cannot Spit It Out: It's pretty clear to anyone that Murdoch likes Dr. Ogden, but he cannot get himself to say it. When he tries to propose to her late in "The Murdoch Sting", he still has this problem despite having had a fortifying drink of Brackenreid's scotch beforehand ; he stops himself and starts again when he tries to ask the question before Julia stops him and flees into her house.
Murdoch is apt to say, "I have an idea," when he wants to use a new invention or technique to solve a problem, gather needed evidence or catch a culprit.

It fails to catch the Bandit because the Bandit is actually reporter Paddy Glynn, who saw Murdoch explain the plan, but it does help identify the Costume Copycat who murders an innocent woman. Played straight in another episode, when an apprentice hangman shows Murdoch and Dr.
Ogden the physics of hanging. If the rope's not measured and tied correctly, the person being hanged can either end up being slowly strangled, or end up being completely decapitated. Guess which one applies to the murderer of the week when he goes to the gallows.
Note that he was hanged by said apprentice for the murder of a judge and he had implicated the hangman's boss in that crime, which strongly suggests the new hangman did it on purpose.
A few times, since in at least two episodes there have been brief mentions of escaped convicts that usually don't have anything to do with the case, only for the criminals to show up near the end.
More often than not, the inconspicuous witness is the murderer unless it's Ze Americans. Murdoch tends to arrive on the scene of the crime to find nothing but a body and a dozen people with something to hide.
Naturally, he points the finger at the closest Angry Guy with a Grudge only to find that the real murderer is the whimsical old lady, the guy in the wheelchair, or the uppity university snob with an extreme interest in applied physics. Militant Irish dockworker Mick O'Shea is suspected of murder and viciously beaten by Brackenreid in the interrogation room. When he and several of his mates are arrested for causing a riot several episodes later, they ambush Brackenreid and beat him to within an inch of his life.
They are also shown to be running a sex-trafficking ring in addition to extorting merchants in the harbour. At the start of "Mild Mild West", Murdoch demonstrates that he knows how to use a lasso at a carnival game. Later he uses a lasso to capture a fleeing suspect. Inspector Brackenreid to Murdoch and the rest of Station House 4. Brackenreid's superior, Chief Constable Stockton. Since Murdoch is very much a By-the-Book CopStockton tends to exert pressure on him and on Brackenreid to make a quick arrest or back off of VIPs, never mind the evidence.
Stockton's successor, Chief Constable Giles. Like his predecessor Stockton, he tends to show up when Murdoch is investigating important cases, usually warning Brackenreid and Murdoch to be discreet and not stir up too much trouble. And he hasn't forgotten Murdoch's role in Ava Moon's escape from jail and implies that any further slip-ups will cost him his badge. Of course, things aren't as straightforward as that A couple of examples: Murdoch's landlady is accused of murder in "Murdoch of the Klondike", and Murdoch has to prove her innocence.
Ogden's innocence when she's framed for Darcy Garland's murder. Season 10 ends with Murdoch in jail for murder and having to clear his own name amid corrupt police officials. Detective Murdoch arrives soaking wet and tells everyone there that the ferry to the mainland won't operate again until the storm lets up, so he and Dr. Grace have to work the murder case entirely onsite. The boatman isn't scheduled to return for several days, the only boat on the island is found to have a gaping hole in it, and the period setting means there's no communications technology.
Thus Drs Ogden and Grace have to take the lead in solving the problem of the ax-wielding killer. Murdoch is very good at his job, but his counterpart at Stationhouse 3, Chester Macdonald, is aptly described by Brackenreid as an "obvious dunce". His shoddy investigation of a murder leads an innocent man to be nearly hanged, and Murdoch ends up having to clean up his mess.

Emily Grace takes after her mentor. In "Murdoch of the Living Dead", when she was grabbed by one of the "zombies", she stabbed him in the hand with her hatpinand in "Friday the 13th " she hit Julia's ax-wielding attacker from behind with a bottle. Anna Fulford in "The Murdoch Identity" is quite handy with a frying panand later in the same episode she shoots one of Murdoch's captors and pistol whips one in the back of the head.
In "Victoria Cross", Murdoch himself comes upon a killer approaching Julia and her patient an eyewitness to his earlier robbery and murderand grabs the guy's arm from behind without further ado — no flashing the badge or issuing a verbal order to stop.
Murdoch can easily fall here, always staying quite serious even in the most bizarre situations. Inspector Brackenreid once asks Crabtree if he'd ever seen him laugh. Terence Myers, who is utterly straight-faced while being comical at the same time. Ogden got him fired from the hospital he worked at because of that case.
A number of upper-class families are plagued by burglaries, and the sons of several of the families accuse a caravan of gypsies of being responsible. Brackenreid initially arrests the gypsies, but he later realizes their innocence when he notices the flaws in the boys' story. He then subverts this trope by not arresting the boys right away, but instead setting up a sting that confirms their guilt. Crabtree does this while investigating the B-plot of "Murdoch of the Klondike".
A murder victim's widow says something that makes Crabtree suspicious, and while he's interviewing her at her house she gets a phone call that makes him even more suspicious. This doesn't make Crabtree arrest her, but it does lead him to trace the call and arrest the hired killer she was talking to, who confesses and provides proof of his employer's guilt.
Cool and Unusual Punishment: Annie Edison Taylorthe first person to take a trip down Niagara Falls, is touring with the barrel she rode down the falls in. When her barrel is stolen during an appearance in Toronto, she enlists Crabtree's help.
THE FIRST KISS (SORT OF)
Crabtree discovers that the thieves are a group of university students who stole the barrel as a prank. The boys plead with Crabtree not to arrest them, since the scandal would lead to their being disowned by their families. In lieu of arresting them, Crabtree punishes the boys by forcing them to clean the entire stationhouse from top to bottom, and he insists they write a letter of apology to Ms.
In "Bad Medicine", the Victim of the Week writes the letters "W Y" in his own blood on a rock after he is shot in the back with an arrow. In "Winston's Lost Night," the killer left a message in blood on the wallpaper of the victim's room. However, the blood darkened as it dried until it blended in with the dark red wallpaper, and the message is missed until late in the episode and only revealed via Murdoch's ultraviolet light.
What's written in the blood is "Omdurman," indicating that the murder was committed in revenge for the victim's involvement in the Battle of Omdurman and the desecration of a Muslim priest's tomb. Later, the Kissing Bandit seemingly turns cold-blooded when he shoots a woman he'd kissed during one of his previous robberies. Murdoch has caught the real Bandit and has him in custody when the shooting takes place, and so Murdoch realizes that the Bandit who supposedly killed the woman is in fact an impostor disguised as the real one.
Lampshaded by Inspector Brackereid who didn't understand what she was doing and later joked that while his best man was drowning, she was only using it as an opportunity to kiss Murdoch.

He and Constable Crabtree visit the mortician, and Crabtree notices the body seems to be rather high in his coffin. The belly speaker's puppet was very disturbing. The fact that it was manufactured to look like its owner, complete with different colored eyes, added to the creepiness factor. In "Me, Myself and Murdoch", the constables found a rag doll without an eye found in a Creepy Basement.
It was buried there with a chopped up skeleton. Detective Murdoch was taunted by a series of dolls with recorded messages as a part of Criminal Mind Games scheme.
Lampshaded by Inspector Brackenried: She is later reminded of this again when going over the Gillies case file and looking at a photo of one of the dolls. A suspect was seen talking with a victim on a train and he admitted he liked her a lot. They found he has home-made jewellery made of human hair of multiple people, and the victim's hair is among them.
However, she gave it to him voluntarily while she was alive. Jewellery from human hair was still seen as very weird, but he was not her murderer. In "Murdoch in Toyland", Detective Murdoch is left a series of talking dolls designed to give him just enough clues to reach the next one, and also to make him overthink things and miss more blatant clues. A young Charles Ponzi is caught red-handed by Brackenreid after he cons the people of Toronto.
Brackenreid is ready to arrest him, but Ponzi resorts to this trope to pretend that he'll never do it again. Unfortunately, Brackenreid believes him. Ogden are among those on the train taking James Gillies to be hanged.
At one point, they're discussing the situation, and Julia speculates that it might be better for Gillies to rot in prison instead, suggesting that a life sentence would be "crueler". Cut Lex Luthor a Check: Murdoch develops several innovations for crime-fighting that could make him a wealthy man if he patented them. It's subverted in one episode when Murdoch develops a polygraph lie detector device, and Crabtree tries to persuade a wealthy businesswoman to invest in it.
The device works exactly the way it's supposed to, but it doesn't register anything since all the people Murdoch is testing it on are telling the truth and are all innocent. Thinking the device is worthless, the businesswoman played by Canadian Dragon's Den regular Arlene Dickenson loses interest and walks off. James Gillies is an impeccably dressed young man of fashion. He's also a stone-cold Manipulative Bastard who enjoys setting up elaborate revenge plots on anyone unlucky enough to get in his way.
Carducci in "This One Goes to Eleven". He has a neatly trimmed beard, twirly-styled hair, and wears several fashionable suits in addition to owning a walking stick. He is impeccably gentlemanly throughout the episode until the reveal. Murdoch wears a Homburg, but Brackenreid often wears a Derby. The mistake in Brackenreid's costume is that men did not regularly wear a derby with a morning coat until after World War I.
While Crabtree is temporarily promoted to acting detective, he gets a derby, too. Used frequently from Murdoch's perspective, mostly involving Doctor Ogden and kissing. In one daydream Murdoch saw his older self camping with his wife and son. While Murdoch sees and seems to know the identity of the wife he smiles when he sees herthe audience doesn't.
Doctor Ogden's point of view: When the case involving a " Hemo Erotic vampire" is solved, she imagines herself to be lifted up and seated on a table by the wall by Murdoch, and the two start to make out violently. A Day in the Limelight: Season 7 has two: Season 8 has "Crabtreemania", which keeps the focus on Crabtree even though Murdoch is involved in the investigation as well, and ends with him being offered a detective position.
The episode "The Artful Detective" has an early 20th century version, minus the wide audience. A group of people who are desperate for money and one Egomaniac Hunter agree to attempt to kill each other for the entertainment of a bookmaker and his clients.
The results are published in a local racing paper, disguised as a non-existent race. When Murdoch starts getting too close, a new "horse" is added to the listings: As noted below under Sherlock HomageMurdoch is one of these from time to time.
Late in "The Murdoch Sting", he comes upon Eva Pearce standing in a pond desperately searching for the corpse she hid there. He addresses her and says, "What are you doing? You'll catch your death. She has two other discussions with him later as she's investigating his death.
Death Faked for You: For Anna Fulford by the Toronto Constabulary, no less. They stage her murder when they know a member of the organization is watching and they arrange a new identity for her as well.
