Summary Edit

The police investigate the murder of Howard Rookwood, a well-known Toronto industrialist and philanthropist who was struck on the head just outside of his house. Rookwood was an active supporter of Baker House, a home that specializes in relocating underprivileged children from England to Canada and his own daughter was adopted. As Detective Murdoch examines the forensic evidence, he and Doctor Ogden conclude that a child, or children, may be the culprit. The true motivation and solution to the crime however is far darker.

Character RevelationsEdit

Continuity Edit

  • Murdoch and Ogden enjoy working as a team to solve the case, making good partners in crime solving.

TriviaEdit

  • This episode is unique in that there are no "Guest Star" credits. The supporting cast is only credited at the end of the episode.
  • "Me Ol' Mucker" Count: 0

Errors Edit

  • The telegrapher is using the telegraph key incorrectly. Simply tapping on the key with the index finger would not give the control needed to distinguish between dots and dashes.
