  • Murdoch begins to cross the line to solve a murder...

    The dark tone of the 4th series continues with Murdoch deciding to make all attempts to solve a case - despite the new doctor standing in his way. From the first episode in this series, Murdoch has started down a path where he is starting to believe that his way is the right way. He arranges for Dr. Ogden to go behind the new doctor's back to gain more details on a murder - but then they are caught. The problem with this episode is that the very moral and high-principled characters of Murdoch and Ogden are beginning to act out of character. And then any explosive scenes between the new doctor/Murdoch or the inspector/Murdoch get aborted and lead nowhere. In the end, Murdoch solves a typically convoluted case and Dr. Ogden is encouraged by her fiancee to move back into town (very understanding of him!). While any scenes with Murdoch/Ogden are welcomed, they need to be more believable...
