From within the walls of a maximum-security prison to the outer atmosphere of the earth, Season nine explores new worlds and mystifying cases. 1903 begins with Detective Murdoch, Dr. Julia Ogden, Inspector Brackenreid and Dr. Emily Grace still reeling over the arrest of Constable George Crabtree. Then a shocking death brings great change to the world of Station No. 4. Through it all, Murdoch and his colleagues continue to solve the unsolvable, coming face-to-face with everything from an impossible bank robbery to a threat to destroy Canada, confronting each case with wit, wisdom and innovation. The team also welcomes a new addition, Rebecca James, a recent arrival in Toronto and young woman of humble origins who Dr. Ogden takes under her wing. Season nine upholds the series' tradition of bringing historical figures to Toronto, including the likes of Mark Twain, Lucy Maud Montgomery and Prime Minister Wilfred Laurier.
