Review

Every detective series, at one stage or another, seems to put its protagonist on a boat. It’s almost like the writers run out of plotlines on dry land, so opt to set sail on the high seas. Poirot went down the Nile, Columbo took a cruise to Acapulco, now Murdoch is on board a newly christened passenger steamship whose owner has received death threats.

Pretty soon, someone has fallen overboard (though anyone with just a passing knowledge of murder mysteries will get suspicious about the sight of a fancy hat floating on the surface of the water), before the whole thing turns into Titanic. Albeit Titanic done on the budget of a Canadian TV drama that knocks out 18 episodes per season.

Summary

The detective and Brackenreid set sail on the maiden voyage of passenger liner SS Keewatin, where they are soon tasked with investigating the disappearance of a ship magnate's daughter. Crime drama, starring Yannick Bisson and Thomas Craig.
