SEASON

Meet the Cast

Detective William Murdoch

Yannick Bisson

Detective William Murdoch is a handsome young detective who uses radical forensic techniques to solve some of the city’s most gruesome murders. Though his unconventional approach elicits ridicule from fellow officers and skepticism from his superiors, Murdoch is often the only one who can crack the case. Born and raised in a staunch Roman Catholic home in Eastern Canada, Murdoch was a dedicated autodidact who never stopped reading and learning. A great admirer of the inventor and physicist Nikola Tesla, a man said to be “the patron saint of modern electricity,” Murdoch developed an early interest in science and theology. He was also hooked on the novels of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, becoming a great admirer of the fictional detective Sherlock Holmes. When he arrived in Toronto and found that the police department was recruiting, he signed up immediately, inspired by visions of himself as a great detective solving difficult cases. He ended up spending four years pounding the pavement and rattling doorknobs as a constable. On the plus side, he developed street smarts to complement his growing intellectual skills. Using his self‐taught detective and forensic skills, he ended up solving a number of crimes and coming to the attention of his superiors. He was eventually raised to the level of detective.

Dr. Julia Ogden

Hélène Joy

Julia Ogden is a pathologist who works with the Toronto police force. She’s a forward‐thinking, modern woman who can be quite blunt and straightforward. She shares Murdoch’s fascination with forensic science and has become one of his staunchest allies. Though her family supports her ambitions, they can’t help but feel a little scandalized that she’s not married, lives alone, and spends her life cutting up dead people instead of raising children.

Constable George Crabtree

Jonny Harris

George Crabtree is a young constable who’s eager to be a detective like Murdoch, but lacks the formal education to do so. Murdoch admires his enthusiasm, openness to new ideas and loyalty, but is frustrated by Crabtree’s inability to grasp some of the more elusive scientific concepts. But all told, they make a good team.

Inspector Thomas Brackenreid

Thomas Craig

Brackenreid is a gruff, no‐nonsense, by‐the‐book inspector who is completely lacking in imagination. He is prone to quick judgments based on stereotypes and first impressions. Though he would never disobey an order, he occasionally lets Murdoch do it if he thinks it might solve a case. While he is often embarrassed by Murdoch’s eccentric approach to policing, he’s come to realize it does get results. Not afraid to get his hands dirty, Brackenreid is known to use force--if necessary--to get results.
