"The Curse of Beaton Manor" is the tenth episode of the third season of the Murdoch Mysteries and the thirty-sixth episode of the series. It first aired on April 20, 2010 (UK).
Detective Murdoch investigates the suspicious death of Chauncey Beaton who has fallen, or was pushed or jumped, off his balcony. The servants claim the house is cursed and it is responsible for his death. The dead man's brother Ronald was in the house and another brother, Byron, was en route to a business meeting. Some of the servants heard Chauncey shouting his half-brother Timothy's name but Timothy had killed himself the previous February. Several of the household staff claim to have seen Timothy's ghost. The Beaton family has a long history of suspicious deaths and Murdoch believes one of the remaining brothers is responsible, presumably eliminating the other brothers in order to inherit the estate. Soon however, even the police start to see ghosts in Beaton Manor.
