Murdoch.com - S2-E10

Factual error: Enid, the telegraph operator, exclaims that "He is sending an SOS." However, in the 19th century, distress calls did not include the letters "SOS," It was not until the early 20th Century that SOS was chosen as the international distress call.

Suggested correction: The show is set in the early 1900's, which is the early 20th century. By the time this event transpired, SOS would have been established as a universal distress signal.

The show starts in 1895 and by season 2, it was still the 19th century and before Germany adopted SOS in 1905.

Revealing mistake: Near the end of the episode, when Dr. Ogden and Murdoch look closely at Lukas' dead body (right before the candle scene), the "corpse" takes a deep breath.

Suggested correction: It's actually "After the Ball is Over"! I believe it was written sometime in the 19th century.

Question: Can someone tell me the brand of wall clock that hangs so conspicuously in the Inspector's office? Thanks.
