Murdoch Mysteries: Season 4

 (TV) (2011)

Murdoch Mysteries: Season 4 Blu-ray delivers stunning 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 skepticism from his boss, Inspector Brackenreid, Murdoch is often the only one who can crack the case.

For more about Murdoch Mysteries: Season 4 and the Murdoch Mysteries: Season 4 Blu-ray release, see Murdoch Mysteries: Season 4 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 4 Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Murdoch Mysteries continues to be shot on hi-def video, and the quality of the photography has improved with subsequent seasons. The video noise that I noted as an occasional distraction on the Season 1 discs was entirely absent on Acorn Media's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-rays for Season 4, but the depiction of 1890s Toronto (and, for one episode, Buffalo) remains as brightly lit, detailed and colorful as always. The show continues to be photographed in a style that's the opposite of a typical sepia-toned period piece, which strikes an appropriate visual balance with the city's dirt roads, horse-drawn carriages and vintage clothing. Murdoch's world is part of history, but it's also on the cusp of modernity.

Black levels on these discs were particularly good, I thought, and this is especially noticeable in several episodes, including episode 7, "Confederate Treasure", which includes a boat ride on a lake in the dead of night; episode 10, "Voices", set in a convent; and the final episode of the season, "Murdoch in Wonderland", which involves a Lewis Carroll-themed costume party and features several scenes of nightmares and hallucinations with solid black backgrounds.


Murdoch Mysteries: Season 4 Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

As with Season 1, the printed jacket copy lists PCM 2.0, but the actual sound format is Dolby Digital 2.0 at 256 kbps. Having used PCM on its first-issued set of Murdoch Blu-rays, Season 3, Acorn has apparently decided that DD is good enough. Having watched all of the seasons issued on Blu-ray to date, I have to say that I don't think viewers will notice the difference unless they convince themselves beforehand. Murdoch's stereo soundtrack is a serviceable one, with clearly rendered dialogue, effective underscoring by Robert Carli, essential sound effects for storytelling, and a few signature sounds to indicate scene transitions (notably a light bulb illuminating). Lossless encoding would be preferable, but I'm not sure how much it would really add to the experience.
