Episode 1: Troublemakers

Summary

The renowned Dr Katherine Talbot (Claire Goose) is slated to speak at a gathering of the League of Women Voters. Unfortunately, her presence isn't welcome by all and her impassioned speech is interrupted when a bomb explodes injuring fellow women's suffrage advocate Clara Martin and killing a mysterious man. Meanwhile, the professional tension between Murdoch and coroner Violet Hart is exacerbated by what he deems a slow investigation. Crime drama, starring Yannick Bisson.

Review

British actors love playing dress-up on Murdoch Mysteries and the latest UK star time-travelling back to early 20th-century Toronto is Claire Goose, one-time star of Waking the Dead and axed-too-soon daytime crime drama The Coroner. Here, she’s playing a Votes for Women advocate caught up in an explosion at a women’s suffrage rally that’s also being attended by Murdoch’s wife Julia. He, of course, starts to fret that she’s putting herself in danger by championing the cause.

But at least he’s more open-minded than Inspector Brackenreid, who’s already had his fill of suffragettes. “The world’s bloody changing and no one can keep up with it,” he complains, as baffled and intolerant as ever.
