As good as the show

It is almost better than the show since Murdoch has only words and no acting to tell us his story.

So deep

Excellent look into the psyche of a deeply humbled man. You will definitely look at Murdoch Mysteries in a new and revealing light.

Very Enjoyable

I thoroughly enjoyed hearing from Murdoch reading from his diary. An intimate look at the detective, performed perfectly by Yannick Bisson.

More than entertaining pastime!

These "diary entries" bring to light a depth of character and evolution unavailable in the video episodes. By "watching/listening over his shoulder" to Detective Murdoch we are inviting ourselves to descend into moral/ethical/philosphophical inquiry that is both gentle and remarkably profound in its simplicity!
Keep them coming!

overview

I enjoyed this overview - especially as it was narrated by the TV Series actor. I am sure if I can catch any of the episodes on Ovation now, I will be a lot more oriented to what is going on in the episode. ....looking forward to more of both.... I might even look for the book(s).

Engaging summary of favourite Murdoch Mysteries

Yannick Bisson does an amazing job to refresh and review many of our favourite Murdoch Mystery episodes, keeping the listeners engaged with his skilled and enjoyable voice. The writers have added in summaries, pulling themes and stories lines together, to create these audio-versions, thereby offering listeners more insights than we have available to us by just watching the TV shows. Thank you to all those involved in bringing these audio-versions to Murdoch Mystery Fans. Definitely five stars to Yannick Bisson for his excellent audio performances.

Interesting episode synopses

Felt as if I was watching the TV Series. If you haven't seen the series this is a good lead in as it is read by the actors who appear in the series

Spoilers!

I've only just started watching Detective Murdoch. I'm in Season 2. And in the first 3 minutes of this I heard some massive spoilers about character arcs. A little context about WHEN to listen to it would have been helpful. As for the stories themselves - no idea - I had to stop listening.

Engrossing

Thoroughly enjoyed each story. All in all each chapter flowed really nicely yet kept the strories interesting by being different. Loved the occasional reference to modern technology.

Disjointed

The premise of the story is good and the performance excellent. The way the story is told is disjointed and you never really feel a sense of narrative. Perhaps if it was put into chronological order that would be better.
