#20 - Murdoch Mysteries

In a future blog post, I will be discussing the fact that the site of Nova’s Canadian office also functions year round as a movie set.

In July 2011, one of the episodes of the show ‘Murdoch Mysteries’ was filmed on our site. Murdoch Mysteries is a Canadian-produced television series about an eccentric detective working in Toronto in the 1890’s. He solves his cases using advanced methods of detection that would have been unusual in that era. I’ve never watched the show, but I hear it’s quite good. The fifth season of the show is due to begin airing in the spring of 2012.

The Murdoch Mysteries website is also interesting.

The film set was constructed on-site to take advantage of the historic aspects of our buildings while hiding any clues of modernity. During the filming days, the street and adjoining site were filled with actors and extras in period costumes. There were even horses and carriages brought on set. Unfortunately, it happened to be the hottest July days in Hamilton since 1936 apparently. So the comfort level on the set was probably not too high, although lots of water and shade where made available.

I have no idea how to segue this discussion from Murdoch Mysteries to gas analyzers except to say that a Nova gas analyzer sounds like something William Murdoch would have liked to use somewhere in his detective work. He just sounds like that kind of guy.

We make gas analyzers for oxygen, hydrogen, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, methane, and many other atmospheric gases. We provide gas analysers for syngas, landfill gas, purity gas, biogas, and others.

If you could use a gas analyzer in your detective work, give Mike or Dave at Nova a call, or send us an e-mail.

  1. Excellent post, Dave! We're Murdoch Mystery fans and I'm sure Nova's site would have made an excellent location for the show's filming!

    I'm also sure several companies could "use a gas analyzer in (their) detective work!:)
