YMMV: Murdoch Mysteries
  • Adaptation Displacement: The TV series is markedly different from the original series of novels, though as a character, Murdoch in the TV series is quite similar to the Murdoch in the novels. In the books, George Crabtree is described as having a large build and is a married father of five.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: There are many fans who are quite fond of Henry Higgins, and would very much like to see his character become part of the main cast.
  • Foe Yay: Some fangirls began to ship Murdoch and James Gillies together after the latter kisses the former on the mouth for a full three seconds in "Midnight Train to Kingston."
  • Holy Shit Quotient: Viewers all across the board were completely stunned when Gillies kisses Murdoch rather passionately in "Midnight Train to Kingston"; no one saw that coming!
  • The Woobie: Whenever Murdoch breaks down and is Not So Stoic, especially when Julia told him about her abortion and that it left her barren and implied that she wanted to break up their relationship.
  • Unfortunate Implications: In a number of episodes, Americans are portrayed as evil bastards, especially in "Murdoch Air."
