Bravo/CHUM is currently developing a series based on the character of Detective William Murdoch for broadcast in 2007.
Three of the novels have been adapted for television, and four seasons of a television series, "The Murdoch Mysteries," based on the characters from the novels, have been produced by Shaftesbury Films forCITY TV/Rogers, UKTV in Britain and distributed internationally by ITV/Granada international.
Born in the U.K., Jennings now lives in Toronto."
“The portrayal of Victorian life in Toronto rings true. We feel the chill of the poorly heated rooms and sympathize with all those at the margins of society. . . . This is a well-written, tightly plotted mystery.”
— Quill & Quire
“Jennings has . . . a fine eye for telling details and good characters.”
