The Death Of Dr. Ogden (Season 7) – 8.6
There were a lot of episodes that tied for the bottom spot on this list with an 8.6, but this season finale remains a fan favorite that just had to be included on the list.

The Murdoch Identity (Season 3) – 8.7
In the season premiere of the third season, Murdoch is in Britain – surrounded by professional killers who try to uncover what he knows about a pending assassination. However, Murdoch can’t remember a thing.
This episode certainly kept fans on their toes, and is the only episode from the first three seasons to make this list. For OG fans of the show, this one is certainly for them.
Twentieth Century Murdoch (Season 5) – 8.7
On New Year’s Even, this season finale certainly blew the socks off every fan watching. A man, claiming to have time-traveled, claims that he knows how to prevent a murder.
The season finales of this show certainly do pretty well with critics and with fans, and this riveting episode is certainly no exception. Plus – it’s wonderful to watch and celebrate the holidays.
Raised On Robbery (Season 9) – 8.7
The latter seasons of the show have surprisingly only gotten better, according to IMDb and the fans who voted for these episodes. In the ninth season, Murdoch continues to face some real career roadblocks.
This one follows the story of a bank heist that turns out to be risking Murdoch’s reputation. With high stakes and a mystery to solve, this episode is certainly full of suspense.
Hell To Pay (Season 10) – 8.7
In the finale of the tenth season, Murdoch investigates a case with a burlesque dancer who has been conspired against in order to maintain her silence. However, this puts the entire station house in danger.
The last few seasons of this show certainly proved their worth, and every season finale is riveting enough to re-watch over and over. However, the tenth season is certainly a fan favorite.
Bl**Dy H*Ll (Season 9) – 8.8
Season 9 strikes again with the third last episode of its season. In this episode, Murdoch and Brackenreid are investigating police corruption – and find their jobs at jeopardy.
This episode is full of high levels of corruption, and makes this one totally infatuating and well-deserving of being in the top ten episodes. Murdoch usually works alone, but fans loved this partnership for a twist of events.
Darkness Before The Dawn Part 2 (Season 12) – 8.8
The season finale of the twelfth season is one that fans will always remember. John is being charged with murder, but Murdoch suspects he is being framed by an Inspector.
With a corrupt copper in the mix, this episode is nail-biting and is certainly one of the best season finales from the entire series, and of course, of all the episodes.
Dead End Street (Season 4) – 8.9
This episode did extremely well for a middle-of-the-season episode. In this one, Murdoch visits a large diorama of a Toronto street, which leads to realize that a murder took place on that cul-de-sac.
With a whopping 8.9/10, this early episode from the series takes the bronze medal on the list, and should definitely be re-watched immediately for a creative plot and intense mystery.
Up From Ashes (Season 11) – 8.9
Season 11 takes the top two spots on this list, making two of the best episodes out of 207! In the second episode of the season, Murdoch is accused of murder, Julia is kidnapped, and a new chief arrives from the United Kingdom.
This episode is jam packed full of drama and intensity, and certainly deserves the silver medal on this list. Everyone loves Murdoch and Julia, and both of them at risk is enough for everyone to remember this episode.
The Accident (Season 11) – 9.2
The best episode of the series comes from season 11, and scored a whopping 9.2/10 on IMDb. In this episode, Murdoch is investigating a car accident, but it turns out the case reveals some incredibly foul motives.
Fans can enjoy re-watching this episode at any time, because it’s the best one out there from this riveting and brilliant Canadian series. Fans can hardly wait for another season, with hopefully even higher-rated episodes.
