Maureen Jennings’ novels come to life with “Murdoch Mysteries.” The show follows a man by the name of William Murdoch, a young detective solving crimes in Toronto during the late 1800s. He uses unconventional techniques that often leave people doubting him, but they shouldn’t doubt the mastermind that is William Murdoch. It’s like “House” if it was about murders and set in the 1800s. You wouldn’t doubt Gregory House, would you?
