Murdoch Mysteries Wiki

Bobby Brackenreid is the son of Thomas and Margaret Brackenreid and younger brother of John Brackenreid.

As the younger son of the Brackenreids, Bobby exists in the shadow of his older brother John. Unlike John, he has been a kidnap victim but the trauma he might have experienced has not been dwelled upon – nor acknowledged. He has been more his mother's son – growing up closer to her apron strings than to his father, even suffering disappoints from promises his father had made to him. Bobby has never been the center of his family's focus since that kidnapping.

Season 14 reintroduces Bobby Brackenreid (Christopher Jones), an older more complicated young man...
