Set in early 20th century Toronto, The Artful Detective explores the intriguing world of William Murdoch, a detective who pioneers innovative forensic techniques to solve some of the city’s most gruesome crimes.

In series six of the one-hour drama, Detective Murdoch tries to clear the name of a young Winston Churchill after his visit to Canada goes awry; a dangerous madman threatens to unleash a deadly toxic gas attack; and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle makes an appearance when his supposedly fictional creation, Detective Sherlock Holmes, becomes entangled in a violent robbery. Murdoch also crosses paths with the Wright Brothers, and sees first hand the amazement of mechanical airplane flight when he delves into a high-flying, high-level conspiracy.
