Murdoch Mysteries: Season 1

 (TV) (2008)

Murdoch Mysteries: Season 1 Blu-ray delivers great video and solid audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Set in Toronto in the 1890s, Murdoch Mysteries explores the intriguing world of William Murdoch, a handsome young detective using radical forensic techniques including fingerprinting and trace evidence, to solve some of the city's most gruesome murders. Though his unconventional approach elicits ridicule from fellow officers and scepticism from his boss, Inspector Brackenreid, Murdoch is often the only one who can crack the case.

For more about Murdoch Mysteries: Season 1 and the Murdoch Mysteries: Season 1 Blu-ray release, see Murdoch Mysteries: Season 1 Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Starring: Yannick Bisson, Thomas Craig, Jonny Harris, Hélène Joy

Murdoch Mysteries: Season 1 Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Murdoch Mysteries is shot on hi-def video, and the style is deliberately bright and slightly overlit to create the opposite effect of a sepia-toned, period style. Acorn Media's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray image is consistently clean, clear and well-detailed, so much so that you can routinely pick out individual fibres in clothing, pores in faces and anachronistic product markings in the production design (a point made repeatedly in the commentary on episode 1). Blacks are solid and deep (for a TV show), and degrees of black are well-differentiated, so that scenes with darkened areas (e.g., Tesla's lab) exhibit good shadow detail.

The only criticism, and it's a minor one, is an occasional occurrence of video noise. This is probably a leftover from digital post-processing, and it's generally fleeting, but it does pop up from time to time.


Murdoch Mysteries: Season 1 Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

It wasn't until I'd watched about half of season 1 that I noticed its 2.0 audio track wasn't the PCM 2.0 listed on the disc jacket. Murdoch Mysteries is shown in stereo surround, and the Blu-ray release of Season 3 had PCM 2.0 sound, but for some reason Season 1 has DD 2.0 at 256 kbps (which, at least, is an improvement over the anemic 192 kbps usually found on DVD). That the lossy track didn't call attention to itself before then is an indication of how well it does its job, reproducing dialogue and effects clearly and blending them effectively with the distinctive score by Robert Carli.
