Murdoch Mysteries

Murdoch of the Klondike

Series 5 - Episode 1 Murdoch of the Klondike



Appealing to all who like a well-tooled plot and clear diction, the Victorian detective returns with a special episode that sees him roaming the Yukon. You’ll recall Murdoch fleeing 1890s Toronto and now he bumps into a glamorous Jill Halfpenny in a gold-rush town.

She’s a hotel owner and a murder suspect and, although Murdoch has left the police behind, his detective instincts and propensity for wearing full make-up remain.


The detective goes on the run and joins the Gold Rush in the Yukon territory, where he meets radical author Jack London. Drama, guest starring Aaron Ashmore (Smallville), with Yannick Bisson.
