Season 9 premiere  
Just a quick note for those still following this comm since I haven't seen an announcement yet, Season 9 of Murdoch Mysteries premieres on CBC at 8 pm on October 5th. (Check your *ahem* "local listings" for accessibility in your region ;-D)

Let the 'Oh George'-ing commence!

ETA - CAUTION: Comments contain discussion of Season 9 episodes.

The CBC seems to have taken the adoption of the series a few years ago whole-heartedly. It's their Monday night anchor, and the current PM here is a fan (and had a tiny part in one episode, as well as having an episode involving the history of hockey dedicated to him) so it's been quite safe. However it is an election year this year and I have no idea what any of the other potential incoming candidates think of the show!

Well, that's one way to guarantee votes!

I'm not sure what's going to be happening between Dr. Grace and Lillian, but I get the feeling Doctor Grace won't be straying far from Toronto and I also have a very bad feeling of foreboding about Lillian's future.

I was quite nervous about how it would all turn out, and of course the cliche is regrettable, but it could have been handled far worse than it was, I think.

Much as I'd love to have seen Dr. Grace stay, the choice to carry on and go to London seems to spring naturally from her character, and from the grieving process, so it worked for me. I'd love to see her come back of course, though I don't know how soon or how likely that is. Her character was so bright and fresh with her attitude to everything she dealt with, and Lillian's death will be quite a sea change for her to deal with.

The acting was amazing, I was riveted by Georgina's work in this (the scene where she sees the body, I knew what was going on and still it was a very viscerally horrifying scene with great verisimilitude) and everyone else was brilliant as well. Crabtree's goodbye at the station was exceptionally heart-wrenching because they've both lost so much recently, with Edna and Simon gone too, you kind of hope even if there is no romance there, that they would be there and support each other through the emotional times. I imagine they'll be writing a lot of letters back and forth though. :-)

George has a way of talking himself around to an enlightened or at least more modern perspective that's always charmed me about the character. I was also pleasantly surprised that Brackenreid's attitude towards Dr. Grace's love life seems to have softened considerably from his stance last season, and that he showed respect for her grief.

Sorry for babbling! It's rare to find people who watch this show, so I kind of bubbled over. :-)

There are some behind the scenes videos up at the CBC site, I don't know if they are region-locked or not but if they are, try YouTube. The behind the scenes video for this episode has a pretty clear picture of what's happening with regard to Georgina. It could be considered spoilery.
