At last they could be happy, right? Overcome with bitterness, he refused to give Julia an easy divorce, saying "If she's going to act like a whore, she may as well be labelled as such.

The thing I think about the "Murdoch" series that actually has legs is Murdoch is a man of science, a man ahead of his time. You have this fabulous thing to figure out, that, "Something is going on here. You find that a lot of things we take for granted now actually had their beginning in the Victorian era. There are great stories there. How far in advance did you plan for Murdoch and Julia to become this formidable couple?
You start these things and they are very organic. Did we really know back in Episode 1, Season 1, that Julia and Murdoch were truly going to become that fundamental relationship that was going to almost be like a "Moonlighting," like a "Castle" or "Bones"? Those are the relationships in television where the audience is just dying for them to get together.
The problem is once you get them together, you have to be careful. You enter a more slightly domesticated world, so there are always challenges.
For the first seven seasons, we did our best to keep them apart, including getting Julia married. It did feel like it was time to get them together. But even in this episode, they almost didn't get together. What have you enjoyed about the slow burn of Murdoch and Julia's relationship, as opposed to them hooking up in previous seasons? What's amazing is it is quite possibly unrealistic that it's gone on this far. However, what that does show us is how willing the audience is to go with us.
We are not a conventional couple whatsoever. The longer we don't get married, the more unconventional our relationship becomes. It deepens though, because we don't marry for reasons that are essential to our personalities. It's not like, "I don't think you love me enough or I'm interested in somebody else.
It's about our morals, principles and situations in life. Was a part of you thinking, "It's about freaking time? There's only so long you can make people wait. It's been humourous, some of the ways we've been able to stretch it out. There's a point where people go, "Enough already.
There's always a certain amount of in trepidation in doing this. If that's the case, will they become disinterested when we're married? I think we've come far enough that's not the case.
In this particular case, there was a lot of public opinions about them getting together. It's the right time. Before it didn't seem right. We're going to make the most of this. There's one that says, "Oh, you have to get them together.
How could you carry on any more without them being together?
You have to kill someone. Of course I've thought about that. I've thought about that for a number of years now. Should they get together?
'Murdoch Mysteries' 100th Episode: Do Murdoch And Ogden Finally Get Married?
What we have going for us is Julia. This is a woman who is taking on marriage on her terms. That is going to continue to build -- that wonderful banter and spark between them.
We have something up our sleeves that will certainly work through the rest of the season, and into next season, that complicates their lives. That's what you need. You need to bring them together, but keep them a little bit apart. What can you tease about the wedding ceremony? It's going to be beautiful. The truth is a Catholic Victorian wedding would have been quite extended and Latin would have been spoken.
The writers found this genius way to get to the point. Also, in perfect character for them both, Murdoch and Julia are willing to run away from their wedding in a second for justice to be done. Julia is hardly a bridezilla, either. It's romantic in itself, that they're a couple of geeks and there's no vanity in the normal sense of, "Oh, it's my wedding day. We're both in court right up to the point when we're going to get married, fighting for the things we believe in.
It's really excellently written. They did an amazing job making it fun. There's a moment where they almost don't get married.
