Murdoch Mysteries Wiki

Aldous Germaine is a bigwig in the world of antiquities, introduced in Season 12 of Murdoch Mysteries, portrayed by Jeremy Legat.

Appearances and Mentions

Pirates of the Great Lakes

  • Aldous Germaine does not associate with perpetrators of violence for he is a pacifist of the highest order.
  • Aldous Germaine admits that he can not account for every trade, but if a treasure trove of "...that size had occurred, I would likely know about it, yes".  He suggests, without a specific buyer, the Sunday auction would be the most likely place to sell the stolen antiquities.
  • Every third Sunday of the month, a private auction is held in a different location but it is by invitation only and Aldous Germaine offers the young man who "has the eyes of a doe" (Crabtree) to attend as his guest, pointing out to the both detectives, "you have the hardened look of policemen who've been lied to their entire lives".
  • Upon Murdoch agreeing to George going undercover as Germaine's companion, Aldous transforms George into the well-heeled Boston Rhodes from New York City.

The Philately Fatality

  • Aldous Germaine is delighted to introduce George Crabtree to his fellow members of the Toronto Philately Society and is flattered to assist "one of this city's most amiable law enforcement officers".

Things Left Behind

  • Germaine is brought in for questioning by Detectives Watts and Edwards regarding stolen MacAuley paintings. While the detectives do not believe he had any part, they think he may know who did. As he's leaving, Germaine says to Watts, "it was good to see you the other evening, detective." The nature of what he is talking about remains uncertain at this time.
  • Germaine's knowledge of the collector's world comes in handy when he discovers one of the stolen paintings being put up for auction.
