  • Murdoch solves a murder where everyone seems to be lying about something.

    8.0
    This is a very well written episode. First Murdoch thinks that somebody has been killed but can't find the body. Asking the neighbours leads him to find out a lot of lies and stories - but nothing that really leads him to a body. Through dogged persistence when others seem ready to give up, Murdoch finds a body (via the ever-helpful Julia) that seems to match up with the murder scene. But a motive seems missing - and does the killer. The ingenious solution presents itself when Murdoch asks an intellectually challenged girl for the answers - via her reconstruction of the neighbours' street in miniature at the time of a celebration (when the murder took place). Even the final scene with Murdoch/Julia commenting on the girl's outlook on life - and their responses mirroring their own outlook was well done.moreless

    • Murdoch reveals blood stains using "new method" that is based on the chemoluminescence and closely resembles modern Luminol. This method however haven't been invented until 1937. Prior to this invention (made by German Walter Specht) there were many others methods of identyfying blood (guaiac and hydrogen peroxide being most common in the 1890's) but none of such methods involved chemoluminescence.
