Days before Christmas in Edwardian-era Toronto, Detective William Murdoch (Yannick Bisson) is called to investigate a daring train robbery. When witnesses insist the culprit exhibited superhuman abilities, Constable Crabtree (Jonny Harris, Still Standing) realizes the robber bears a striking resemblance to the title character of his new graphic novel, Jumping Jack. As more robberies targeting gifts from Eaton’s luxury department occur around Toronto, Murdoch and his team are forced to consider the possibility that Crabtree’s character has come to life.
As Station House No. 4 contends with the real-life Jumping Jack, Inspector Brackenreid (Thomas Craig, Coronation Street) orders the formation of a police choir, and Dr. Julia Ogden (Hélène Joy, Durham County) tries to help two orphans who mistake her for a fairytale heroine. Can Murdoch and his team stop Jumping Jack from stealing Christmas?
After taking a career break to raise her children, Detective Sergeant Marcella Backland (Anna Friel) rejoins the London Metropolitan Police following the abrupt end of her marriage. She jumps right into one of her old cases when a serial murderer known as the Grove Park Killer seemingly resurfaces. But as Marcella dives deeper into the case, the devastating changes to her personal life leave her in a fragile state. Struggling to cope, she experiences blackouts and extreme rage. When someone close to her estranged husband (Nicholas Pinnock, Fortitude) is murdered, Marcella fears she may have been involved.
From internationally renowned screenwriter Hans Rosenfeldt (The Bridge), Marcella is “a fiendish puzzle…crafted to keep viewers guessing” (The Independent). The stellar ensemble cast also includes Laura Carmichael (Downton Abbey), Jamie Bamber (Battlestar Galactica), Maeve Dermody (And Then There Were None), Nina Sosanya (Love Actually), Ray Panthaki (Convenience), Sinéad Cusack (Eastern Promises), and Harry Lloyd (Game of Thrones).
