Set in 1895 Toronto, Murdoch Mysteries explores the intriguing world of William Murdoch, a handsome young detective using radical forensic techniques, like fingerprinting and trace evidence, to solve some of the city's most gruesome murders.
A native of Sheffield in South Yorkshire, England, Thomas Craig studied at the prestigious Academy of ...
Brackenreid (Craig) is a married man of about forty, fond of the theatre and a good drink. He is the head of the stationhouse and does most of the interrogating, often forming opinions on a suspect because of personal impressions or their social standing. Quick to anger and tenacious, with a sarcastic sense of humour, he is better at traditional "coppering" and is very proud of his job, and what he feels is his duty to protect the city.
While he often disagrees with Murdoch's methods, he uses them when he feels they have merit, though he has little time for Crabtree. He is shown to care for Murdoch and know his mannerisms well enough to know when he is pining, and advises him to do something about it.
Throughout the second season Brackenreid is forced to hide his drinking habits from his wife who joined the temperance movement.
Brackenreid is from Yorkshire. Before becoming a policeman he served in the British Army.
