The Great White Moose” is the fourteenth episode of eleventh season and the one hundred sixty-fourth of the Murdoch Mysteries series. It first aired on February 5, 2018.


When Theodore Roosevelt sneaks into Canada for a hunting trip, Murdoch discovers the American President is the quarry.

Terence Meyers is back! Murdoch and team delve into the underbelly of government operatives and National (“bloody”) Security one more time when an agent for Spanish Intelligence is found dead. Meyers wants Murdoch to find out who killed him and why.

As usual Meyer’s information is not forthcoming and Murdoch must disseminate what is real verses what is not and how much danger everyone is going in, including the visiting American President.

Character Revelations

Historical References

  • The War of 1812 (1812–1815) was a conflict fought between the United States, the United Kingdom, and their respective allies. British historians often consider it as a minor theatre of the Napoleonic Wars. While Canadian militia units had played instrumental roles in several engagements, such as at the Battle of the Chateauguay, it was the regular units of the British Army which ensured that Canada was successfully defended against several attempts to invade Canada by the United States.
  • USS Maine, launched in 1889 as an armored cruiser, whose sinking by an explosionon on 15 February 1898  precipitated the Spanish–American War.
  • The Battle of San Juan Hill (July1, 1898) was a decisive battle of the Spanish–American War. It was also the location of the greatest victory for the Rough Riders, as reported  by the press and its new commander, Theodore Roosevelt, who eventually become, first, vice-president, and then U.S. president, and who was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor in 2001 for his actions in Cuba.
  • The rare and elusive white (piebald) moose has been sighted (and video captured) most recently in Newfoundland and Sweden.
