Welcome to Melanie's Magical Christmas Movies! Every day in December, leading up to Christmas, Melanie will present one of her favorite Christmas movies complete with a trailer (and hopefully where you can watch it!)
Day 5- A Very Murdoch Christmas
Many of you have heard me mention the Murdoch Mysteries, in fact Greg and I were William and Julia last year for our big Halloween show! Despite this technically being a TV series, the Christmas episodes are actually movies in their own right. They are even released as theatrical DVD's thus making this entry valid, (plus my site, my rules!)
Even if you have never watched an episode of the show, a little like classic Agatha Christie stories, you can jump in and enjoy this simply for it being a Christmas movie. There are 3 but I chose this one because it was the first, but also because to me it really brings the magic of Christmas of the days gone by (with just a little murder). Guest star Brendan Coyle will be familiar to many as the lovely Mr. Bates from Downton Abbey, adding another layer to the reasons that you should watch.
So take a step back in time, and see if you can solve it before they do!
**Note if you are getting it on Amazon it says 2 Episodes - the 2nd episode is behind the seasons so don't be tricked into paying for that unless you want it lol**
