Season Premiere: April 19, 2019
Ovation: A brilliant, anachronistic detective solves crimes with unusual methods in 1895 Toronto. Yannick Bisson stars as William Murdoch, a detective whose peculiar and effective methods strangely mirror the modern technology police use today. Whether he’s dusting for prints or constructing a makeshift sonar, Bisson’s ingenious techniques often make him appear like a time traveller from the future, but are simply the product of an overactive imagination and unprecedented intellect. Based on Maureen Jennings novels, this Canadian series scratches the itches of Sherlock and Doctor Who fans all at once.
