Stratford’s historical city hall will serve as a backdrop in an upcoming episode of the CBC’s Murdoch Mysteries.
For three days next week — Oct. 2-4 — a production crew from Shaftesbury Films, the company responsible for the hit CBC drama, will be shooting in the area of city hall and Market Square.
Between 7 a.m. Tuesday and 11 p.m. Thursday, the nine parallel parking spaces on the north side of Market Place and the six spaces on Downie Street between Albert Street and Brunswick Street will be reserved for crew members and unavailable to the public. The accessible space at the corner of Downie Street and Albert Street will be unaffected.
On Wednesday, between 7 and 9 p.m., there will be intermittent traffic stops on Downie Street between between Albert Street and George Street, and on Wellington Street between Downie Street and St. Patrick Street while filming is underway.
While St. Marys has hosted the show — which just started its 12th season — several times in the past, next week will mark the first time Murdoch Mysteries has been shot in Stratford.
