As good as the show

It is almost better than the show since Murdoch has only words and no acting to tell us his story.

overview

I enjoyed this overview - especially as it was narrated by the TV Series actor. I am sure if I can catch any of the episodes on Ovation now, I will be a lot more oriented to what is going on in the episode. ....looking forward to more of both.... I might even look for the book(s).

More than entertaining pastime!

These "diary entries" bring to light a depth of character and evolution unavailable in the video episodes. By "watching/listening over his shoulder" to Detective Murdoch we are inviting ourselves to descend into moral/ethical/philosphophical inquiry that is both gentle and remarkably profound in its simplicity! Keep them coming!

LOVED hearing from Murdoch

Such a treat to hear from Murdoch himself and get a stroll down memory lane of some of the best episodes from the series. You also journey thru the developing relationship between Julia and Murdoch. The best thing..... a glimpse into the complex mind of the brilliant Mr Murdoch!
