A CBC Family Dinner: Inside the Cracked and Murdoch Mysteries Season Premiere

"For all of us to view it together, it was very sentimental." Ade was minutes from re-living the experience when he said that. September 30, the same night as Cracked and Murdoch Mysteries' premieres, Filler Magazine invited the casts of both shows for dinner at Toronto's Daniel et Daniel. Sort of a CBC family dinner, really - a "Mystery Monday" of back-to-back dramas. read more »

David Chilton Tells Steven and Chris Why He's The 'Anti-Dragon' in the Den
How did you get so rich? David Chilton gets that one a lot. Bet you 12 per cent of our paycheque it's one of his most frequently asked questions -- right up there with "Didn't I see you on Dragons' Den?"
