The Artful Detective Season 14 Plot: What Can It Be About?
Based on Maureen Jennings’s bestselling Detective Murdoch series of novels, ‘The Artful Detective’ is set in Toronto between the late 1890s and early 1900s. This was the age of invention and the series revolves around Detective William Murdoch and Dr. Julia Ogden as they employ path-breaking forensic techniques to get to the roots of horrific homicides.
Season 13 follows Murdoch as he tackles another series of gruesome murders while using radical, new techniques like the “searchizer” device. He is still suspicious about the intentions of Violet Hart and has to deal with new arrivals, including Special Constable Robert Parker, who progressed from a murder suspect to a person who helped in solving that case.
Season 14 will take up another bunch of mysteries from Maureen Jennings’s books and will continue to follow Murdoch and the team as they solve several more intriguing crimes. For instance, the new season transports us to 1908 and introduces us to a fresh slate of cases for the squad to solve.
