I love the Murdoch mysteries. I watched the first two series through Netflix. They are lighter than the three TV movies that were made staring a different actor. Those are darker, and follow the books more closely. Both are well worth it.
Why another Sherlock? For traditional we have Rathbone and Brett, for non-traditional we have the new ones from the BBC. Time to find another author to serialize.
