Dr. Darcy Garland was a fellow doctor in a Buffalo hospital who later married Dr. Julia Ogden.
The two doctors first meet at the Children's Hospital in Buffalo, where Julia has decided to start afresh. A mysterious death of a child promotes her to ask for Murdoch's help. Murdoch arrives to help solve a mystery and with ring in hand. Despite Julia and William's past, the two of them seem to get along quite nicely. However before William can propose to Julia, she reveals that she is engaged to Dr. Darcy Garland.
At first Darcy supports and shares Julia's progressive ideas but when it jeopardizes his social status and promotion, his subtle requests become demands– she is his property now. This strains their relationship in Stroll on the Wild Side part 2. Darcy seems to care about his job more than Julia at times, especially in Season 5. In the finale, “You don’t want to do this, do you?” asks Darcy, “It’s the eve of the new century…I think, you should be with whom you wish when it begins,” asking Julia to choose. After Darcy turns from being the enchanted suitor to more the chagrined Victorian husband, Julia takes this opportunity to leave him.
In Season 6, the plot arc involves their divorce in an era when it is nearly impossible for a woman to gracefully exit a marriage. Darcy is a product of his breeding and ambition, behaving as a man of his time.
Darcy appears several times in the later episodes and makes his final appearance in Crime and Punishment when he is shot through the head and killed by James Gillies. Julia is framed for the murder. With the help of Station House 4, Dr. Grace and even Giles, Murdoch saves her.
