"Operation: Murder" is the second episode of the twelfth season and the one hundred seventieth of the Murdoch Mysteries series. It first aired on October 1, 2018.

Summary

Ogden enlists Murdoch to investigate a possible operating room sabotage when a patient dies after a routine procedure.

Character Revelations

  • George Crabtree has an epiphany moment with Murdoch when discussing why every woman he loves eventually leaves town (more often than not from Union Station), but the revelation poses more questions for George than resolving his penchant for choosing ambitious women.

Continuity

  • Dr. Ogden is practicing her surgical residency at The School of Medicine's affiliate hospital.
  • When Ann Ryand (ep.1201) had asked Dr. Ogden if she is going to be a surgeon. Julia shares with her, “Yes, I'm almost there much to the dismay of certain male students in my class” – a forshadow of a conflict in this episode.
  • William Murdoch invents a robotic vacuum cleaner (iRobot Roomba forerunner), which works but when it turns about it doesn't stop.
  • George Crabtree has another farewell at Union Station (off-screen).

Historical References

Trivia

Errors

  • The use of 'inebriant' as a synonym for 'alcoholic', as an adjective for a person (rather than a object) is not grammatically correct, as its antonym is non-alcoholic.
