"Except the Dying" puts Murdoch (Outerbridge) on the case of a girl found naked and strangled near the homes of several prostitutes. An autopsy by coroner Dr. Julia Ogden (Keely Hawes) reveals that the girl was not only drugged with opium, but was pregnant.

In "Poor Tom is Cold," Murdoch is shocked by the apparent suicide of a bright young policeman. But when his fingerprint evidence is dismissed in court, he has to find new evidence to support the murder theory -- including a prostitute hired to act, a family with a madwoman who may not be mad, and a fiancee who was engaged to two men at once. Who had the means, motive and opportunity?
Finally, "Under the Dragon's Tail" has Murdoch discovering that an alcoholic woman's death may have been due to something else -- she was an illegal abortionist. Despite his revulsion, Murdoch begins investigating the many motives, including her religious neighbors and the one-off boyfriend of a pregnant girl. But his case goes into nasty territory when he learns of a connection to a wealthy, prominent judge and his family...Read more ›
