At the heart of this new drama is the dangerous relationship between university professor Leah (Katherine Kelly) and her student Rose (Molly Windsor) when, what begins as a seemingly open and shut case of academic deception, quickly spirals out of control, ending in fatal consequences and triggering a devastating sequence of events that threaten to engulf them both. With relations becoming increasingly hostile, Leah resorts to more extreme measures to expose Rose, and as tensions flare between Leah and Adam, could it be that her husband is taking Rose’s side? Rose seems to pursue a more personal retaliation against Leah, but who is telling the truth?

The Return Of The Dashing Detective William Murdoch

Yannick Bisson and Daniel Maslany

Set in Toronto at the dawn of the 20th century, Murdoch Mysteries is a one-hour drama series that explores the intriguing world of William Murdoch (Yannick Bisson), a methodical and dashing detective who pioneers innovative forensic techniques to solve some of the city’s most gruesome murders.

Series twelve of this hugely popular ITV CHOICE show premieres on the channel (DStv 123) on Tuesday, March 5 at 20:00. Each week will see two episodes played back to back for nine weeks.

Murdoch’s circle of associates includes Constable George Crabtree (Jonny Harris), Murdoch’s eager and often naïve right-hand man; Inspector Brackenreid (Thomas Craig), Murdoch’s sceptical yet reluctantly supportive boss; and the love of his life, pathologist-turned-psychiatrist Dr. Julia Ogden (Hélène Joy), a staunch ally who shares the detective’s fascination with forensic science and innovative ideas. All are valuable allies who help Murdoch solve his varied cases and traverse the many stratums of Victorian-turned-Edwardian society.

In the first episode, called Murdoch Mystery Mansion, Murdoch and Ogden’s new house -designed by architect Frank Lloyd Wright – is rocked by an explosion that claims a man’s life. (Guest starring in the episode is Sophie McShera who played Daisy Mason in Downton Abbey.)

This is followed by episode two – My Big Fat Mimico Wedding – in which Murdoch, Ogden, Crabtree and Brackenreid attend Higgins’ and Ruth Newsome’s wedding where a guest repeatedly tries to kill the groom!

There really is never a dull moment in Murdoch Mysteries!
