This review is for the more current reboot of this Canadian series. Set at the turn of the last century this series is filled with all the murder and mysteries a fan can long for. Clean with little or no blood, this show is fine for the whole family. Set in Toronto we have a Victorian era detective who uses what is at the time cutting edge forensic techniques to solve crimes. He has the assistance of a female coroner who thanks to the times this is set in has to fight her own battle against the misconceptions that are leveled on women at the time.
A nicely integrated cast showing the difference in culture from the US to Canada. I found this show when I moved here and I can honestly say I do my best not to miss an episode. There is a lot of great story telling with lots, and I mean lots. of history tossed in. Now the history is of course from the Canadian viewpoint, which doesn’t quite match to the history I was taught in school but then that is to be expected. Another great show for the family.
