Murdoch Mysteries - Corrected Street Date, Plus Details and Extras for Acorn's Season 2 DVDs


4-disc set is still coming in May, but several weeks earlier than original listed at Amazon

    Winner of two Gemini Awards, this sassy-smart Victorian-era whodunit stars Yannick Bisson (Sue Thomas: F.B.Eye) as Detective William Murdoch, a police investigator who employs emerging science to solve Toronto's most dreadful murders. He experiments with ballistics, psychological profiling, and other newly developed techniques, despite the doubts of his tradition-bound boss (Thomas Craig, Where the Heart Is).

    Together with a beautiful pathologist (Gemini-winner Hélène Joy, Durham County) and an able protégé (Jonny Harris, Hatching, Matching & Dispatching), Murdoch encounters some of the era's most famous - and infamous - figures, from Buffalo Bill Cody to Jack the Ripper. Guest stars include Nicholas Campbell (Da Vinci's Inquest, Cinderella Man), Sarah Strange (Men in Trees), and Alastair Mackenzie (Monarch of the Glen).
This past Monday we let you know that Acorn Media is preparing a DVD release of Murdoch Mysteries - Season 2, and based on Amazon's pre-order listing we passed along a release date of May 25th. Since then, Acorn has gotten in touch with us and let us know that Amazon's date was incorrect (it's now been updated with the right info), and that you can expect this a bit sooner than that: May 4th.

Acorn also filled us in on some further details about this 4-disc set. It will contain 13 episodes running 598 minutes, which are presented in anamorphic widescreen video. Sound will be in English stereo, and it will be accompanied by English subtitles as well. Bonus material consists of a Behind-the-Scenes Featurette on the first disc, and on the fourth disc you'll find Character Bios, Cast Filmographies, and a Photo Gallery. We already passed along that the list price will be $59.99 SRP in the USA, but Acorn also informs us that the cost in Canada will be CA$74.99 SRP (for fans north of the border). Package art has been finalized yet, but stay tuned for that!
