Rejoice Murdoch Mysteries fans! If you are unaware, Acorn TV is exclusively premiering season 11 of Murdoch Mysteries weekly starting December 25th. That’s before the international 2018 release everywhere else. And yes, that also means we have another period drama to look forward to on Christmas Day! As if all the specials weren’t enough for Christmas presents…
What We Know: Acorn TV’s Official Synopsis
“Season 11 begins with Detective Murdoch jailed and framed for the murder of a burlesque dancer. His constables were gunned down in an ambush, Brackenreid was last seen with a gun to his head, and the corrupt politician and his cronies responsible kidnapped Ogden. Murdoch must prove his innocence from behind bars, as Detective Llewellyn Watts helps covertly to solve the case.
Murdoch’s colleagues include his beloved wife, the fiery and fiercely intelligent Dr. Julia Ogden (Hélène Joy, Durham County); Constable George Crabtree (Jonny Harris, Still Standing), Murdoch’s eager but sometimes naïve right-hand man; Inspector Thomas Brackenreid (Thomas Craig, Coronation Street), Murdoch’s skeptical yet reluctantly supportive boss; and morgue assistant Rebecca James (Mouna Traoré, The Book of Negroes), a resourceful young medical student taken under Ogden’s mentorship.
Guest stars this season include Tamzin Outhwaite (EastEnders, New Tricks), Colin Mochrie (Whose Line Is It Anyway?), Elise Bauman (Carmilla, Below Her Mouth) and WWE Raw and Smackdown star Jay Reso. Returning guest stars include Peter Keleghan (Workin’ Moms) and David Hewlett (Incorporated, Stargate: Atlantis).”
