Set in Victorian-era Toronto, Detective William Murdoch (Yannick Bisson) is a man of science, who is far ahead of his colleagues. He goes about solving crimes in a scientific way and is greatly admired by others, including Constable Crabtree (Jonny Harris), who works hard to impress the detective. Murdoch also works alongside Dr. Julia Ogden (Hélène Joy), with whom he has a romantic relationship, and often has to appease his tough-as-nails boss, Inspector Brackenreid (Thomas Craig), who prefers to do things the old-fashioned way.
While dealing with crimes, Murdoch and his team encounter historical figures such as Nikola Tesla, Arthur Conan Doyle, Harry Houdini, Canadian Prime Minister Wilfred Laurier, Alexander Graham Bell, Thomas Edison, a young Lucy Maud Montgomery (before she wrote her classic novel Anne of Green Gables) and Mark Twain.
