Mad Aboot Murdoch

We'd hoped to take a train trip to Toronto to assist the artful detective with his latest cases, but as there is little Murdochy to see and do in that fine city, along with the fact we don't yet know if the series has been renewed, we've opted to keep things local and help our favorite Canadian investigator with a case he began when in our fair state, but alas, never solved as he was obliged to return home. That said, join us for 
A Ghost of a Chance - Murdoch's Unsolved California Mystery.
