Great companion to the series!

If you love the show, you'll enjoy hearing Detective Murdoch's secret diaries. I, especially, like the addition of audio clips from the television episode that relate to the particular entry.

Good stories, some better than others

Great narration. We Two, My Father's Son and Two Ways of Knowing are my favorites. These explore the tension of human heart.

Perfect Recaps and Insights

I am really enjoying this series - the ‘inside’ look into Murdoch, the man. Yannick Bisson does great narration and the observations are like re-living television episodes from a new perspective. I truly hope this series continues.

Entertaining

Being my first audio book I didn't truly appreciate it at first. However, after sampling some others, it is now one of my favorites. Yannick is a great narrator and I loved the sound effects and "reenactments". It gets rather philosophical but I suppose that is what you should expect from someone's diary. The first couple chapters were rather depressing but the adventure picked up after that. Overall, extremely entertaining and I would definitely recommend.

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.

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!

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).

Engaging summary of favourite Murdoch Mysteries

Yannick Bisson does an amazing job to refresh and review many of our favourite Murdoch Mystery episodes, keeping the listeners engaged with his skilled and enjoyable voice. The writers have added in summaries, pulling themes and stories lines together, to create these audio-versions, thereby offering listeners more insights than we have available to us by just watching the TV shows. Thank you to all those involved in bringing these audio-versions to Murdoch Mystery Fans. Definitely five stars to Yannick Bisson for his excellent audio performances.
