I wish Tumblr had a larger Murdoch Mysteries following. Because for a show set in the victorian/edwardian era, it deals with sexism, racisim, homophobia. It has female doctors, diverse female characters. It features cameos from famous people of the day or younger versions who would become famous. It’s not that off historically. The biggest thing would be that Murdoch didn’t invent everything he does. But since he doesn’t patent it, thats why it still works.
And I mean Doctor Ogden is amazing. And she fought for the reproductive rights of herself and her charges, for women to be able to vote, her word is respected by the police in the later 1800’s and early 1900’s.
It’s just….I feel tumblr would really get behind it. I mean there was a scene in one of the most recent ones and it has a very…i don;t know what to call it, but one woman slowly removing corset from the other and she sort of leans into it and I wouldn’t be surprised if something develops between them as they’ve become closer since she’s no longer with Crabtree. who is adorable.
Sherlock Holmes was recurring character and so was his creator! (long story)
So if you haven’t seen it, but like period tv shows, like mystery shows, and/or are canadian, check this out! In america I think it’s called the Artful Detective. Idk why, it’s Murdoch everywhere else.
There’s also a little web series set in the modern day which is very amusing.
