A few weeks ago, a press release announced that 6 episodes of the Canadian series The Murdoch Mysteries have been sold to US public television stations, with episodes to begin airing June 30, 2009 (though we haven't seen anything in our local listings yet).
The Murdoch Mysteries are based on characters created by Maureen Jennings, whose novels are set in the mid- to late-1890s and feature young Toronto detective William Murdoch who investigates crimes using "radical" forensic techniques such as fingerprinting and trace evidence.
Three made-for-television movies, adapted from the first three books of the series, aired on Canadian television in 2004 and 2005 and are now available on DVD as The Murdoch Mysteries: The Movie Collection. The first season of the television series, The Murdoch Mysteries: Season 1, was recently released on DVD. The series has been renewed for a third season in Canada.
Beginning June 30th, check your local public television station listings for airings in your area of episodes in The Murdoch Mysteries.
