Yeah, I wonder if Ruby will be in S5. So far nothing has mentioned her. I would predict that Ruby and this new asst coroner (Dr. Emily Grace) will be rivals for George's affection. I wonder if Tess will reemerge and maybe get in the mix or be a love interest for Higgins. I still hope we get a murder at a ballet. Queen Victoria died very early in 1901, so we may see her death in S6.
Victoria died in mid-January of 1901, if memory serves. So perhaps it's in the papers or something.
Murdoch walking past the Inspector's office to see him hanging up a portrait of Edward VII and taking down the portrait of the Queen that he always has in his office. I'm reminded of the inspector's words about the Queen and eugenics, now.
"Pure bloodlines? We already practice it!" *Points to portrait*, "Now, if that's bettering the human race, I want no part in it!"
--- --- ---
Historical titbit I thought I'd add:
While Edward became king in 1901, as is normal in royal circles, his coronation took place a year later, in 1902.
He very nearly didn't make it. The king was struck down with appendicitis two days before his coronation and it was feared he wouldn't survive (appendicitis being largely untreatable at the turn of the century).
Surgeons working on the king carried out the operation under the strict and careful eye of Joseph Lister (who pioneered antiseptic surgery). With his guidance, the surgery was a success and the coronation went ahead after the king had recovered. He personally thanked Lister for his assistance, saying that he would've died without his help.
I would like season 6 to take place in the winter. I quite enjoyed the darker look of some of the episodes of season 4. I would like to see some of that again. I find winter settings acheive that look well.
I would also like to see Julia's father. We have heard about him since season 1 and we have yet to see him!!!
I think we wil see lots of H.G Wells ideas opening up and I would love Murdoch to meet Jules Verne. he met Maigret so why not Jules Verne.! HG Wells and Jules Verne are the pionners of Science fiction , so I think i would love to see for example Murdoch going to a submarine or to the centre of the Earth( in real or in a dream), if he can meet Jules Verne before he dies (1905) but I think we will meet HG Wells a lot more in season 6 because he dies in 1946 (1866-1946) and H G wells had the idea of the time machine, he wrote a book on the island of Doctor Moreau which is very similar to the doctor Zhivago Island about battering animals species but not human species yet (Eugenics society), the invisible man and the war of the worlds....so Science-fiction was not unknown in the 1900 . HG Wells and Jules Verne were around to let people know that's possible, I bet Murdoch is already aware of all those ideas in season 6, which makes it the turn of the century and up for sci-fi grab like the time machine that we would have seen in final season5. Now, in season 6, the writers can play on all other famous writers from early 1900 (H G Wells, Jules Verne....... but do u know any others sci-fi related writers or not related because Wells and Verne were the only sci-fi pionners of that time) but what about romantic, drama famous writers of that time...any ideas!!!!!) because I think the show will go to anything which happened early 1900.
Ooh Jules Verne and the submarine would be fun. Anything that's plausible and not actually treading into science fiction. Seeing H.G. Wells again might be fun although he was a little creepy in his advances toward Julia. I think the last 2 episodes of S5 take place in the snow. I would like to see that again in S6. I was really disappointed with the opera episode so I am gunning for a good murder at the ballet. I wouldn't be surprised if Emma Goldman shows up again to help Julia out with her contraception and women's health clinic. She was an advocate for birth control. Perhaps we'll meet Margaret Sanger, as well. She set up the 1st birth control clinic in the U.S. in 1916 but was already active in this period. I really hope Ruby is back in S6. I want her to get a job at a Toronto paper and be a regular cast member but I don't think the actress would agree to that. She has too many other projects going on.
"The year 1900 in literature involved some significant new books and publications, as well as the deaths of several highly prominent writers, including among them the late Irish poet Oscar Wilde and the German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche.
The highly influential American author L. Frank Baum wrote the first and most famous of his Oz books, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, in 1900. The book would later go on to be translated into hundreds of languages, distributed worldwide, and come to be part of American popular culture for decades, as well as inspire an equally successful and memorable 1939 screening, along with numerous other adaptations.
The year marked several publications on the literarily influential Boer Wars: Winston Churchill, the future Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and a major Allied political figure in World War II penned a memoir, Ian Hamilton's March, describing his experiences accompanying the British army during the Second Boer War, and Arthur Conan Doyle (famous as the creator of Sherlock Holmes) wrote on the subject in his The Great Boer War.
Zelda Fitzgerald, the future American novelist and wife of fellow writer F. Scott Fitzgerald was born on July 24 of 1900. Margaret Mitchell, who would become known as the author of Gone With the Wind, was born little more than 3 months later."
I need to reseach more about the names mentionned above but Oscar Wilde, Friedrich Niezsche, L. frank. Baum(the wonderful wizard of Oz) and Windson Churchill could all be people who may see interact with station 4 in MM SEASON 6. Arthur Conan Doyle may even come back to share his other ideas like the lost world ( a plateau high in the mountains of Amazons where dinosaurs still live there and where explorers could go and find out about it.. but that was set in 1920) and Margareth Mitchell(Gone with the wind).
Oscar Wilde would be a good one. He could be hanging out with Geoffry at the tennis club (or wherever the group moved after that). Geoffry actually mentioned Oscar Wilde in that episode. Nietzche would be awesome. He and William would have very different views on the world. Thomas would find him an abomination. He and Julia would probably get along very well. He could really cause a rift between William and Julia if the difference in their beliefs became more dramatic due to his influence. Or he could really challenge William's beliefs. Frank L. Baum would be a good one, too. Esp if there is a young child in William's future. I'm not sure I'd want Doyle to come back. The others were only just born in the year, so you wouldn't be able to do much with them as babies
Ha, that's interesting about Mark Twain. He would be a fun guest character.
Dont know!!! PROS or CONS!!!
I am sure somehow sometimes Julia will hear the word" surrogate"!!! When she keeps hearing all the women being pregnant one after another, may be one of them will say"I wish someone else could get pregnant, and I just can get the baby!!!!!! surely some of the women she meets r gonna say something like that one day, so Julia will have to deal with "Surrogacy" afterwards if she stays in the practice for too long. Just a thought!!!!!

whathaveyougeorge: Does anyone know when they actually tape at the Scarborough set? I live only 5 minutes from the set but have never been around when they are actually taping on set. I have HUGE Murdoch friends who would LOVE to at least see the set in action.
