Days before Christmas, Murdoch and his wife, Dr. Julia Ogden (Gemini® winner Hélène Joy, Durham County), travel to Victoria, British Columbia, to spend time with Murdoch's eccentric brother. But instead of a relaxing holiday with Jasper (Dylan Neal, Dawson's Creek) and his family, they end up investigating a murder at an archaeological site.
