Garnering more than two dozen Gemini® nominations and the sole 2016 'Fan's Choice Award' at the Canadian Screen Awards for Yannick Bisson, MURDOCH MYSTERIES: Once Upon a Murdoch Christmas makes its DVD/Blu-ray debut on October 10, 2017 from Acorn TV, an RLJ Entertainment, Inc. (NASDAQ: RLJE) brand. Set in Toronto in the late 1890s and early 1900s during the age of invention, Murdoch Mysteries (aka The Artful Detective) centers on Detective William Murdoch (Bisson), a methodical and dashing detective, who enlists radical new forensic techniques to solve some of the city's most gruesome murders. This DVD/Blu-ray 1-Disc features a feature-length episode and bonus behind-the-scenes featurettes (24.99, Amazon.com). Murdoch Mysteries: Once Upon a Murdoch Christmas made its U.S. debut in July 2017 on Acorn TV. Called a "glorious streaming service... an essential must-have" (The Hollywood Reporter), Acorn TV is North America's most popular and largest streaming service focused on British and international television.
Days before Christmas in Edwardian-era Toronto, Detective William Murdoch (Yannick Bisson) is called to investigate a daring train robbery. When witnesses insist the culprit exhibited SUPERHUMAN abilities, Constable Crabtree (Jonny Harris, Still Standing) realizes the robber bears a striking resemblance to the title character of his new graphic novel, Jumping Jack. As more robberies targeting gifts from Eaton's luxury department occur around Toronto, Murdoch and his team are forced to consider the possibility that Crabtree's character has come to life.
As Station House No. 4 contends with the real-life Jumping Jack, Inspector Brackenreid (Thomas Craig, Coronation Street) orders the formation of a police choir, and Dr. Julia Ogden (Hélène Joy, Durham County) tries to help two orphans who mistake her for a fairytale heroine. Can Murdoch and his team stop Jumping Jack from stealing Christmas?
