Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries

Show Summary

The series is based on author Kerry Greenwood's Phryne Fisher Murder Mystery novels and was created by Deb Cox and Fiona Eagger. Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries revolves around the personal and professional life of Phryne Fisher (Essie Davis), a glamorous private detective in 1920's Melbourne.

Miss Phryne Fisher, an adventurous flapper girl of the 1920s, returns to her home in Australia after traveling around the world to prevent the alleged murderer of her sister, Jane, from being set free from prison. She solves a murder (and several attempted ones) revolving around the home of her cousin and decides to become a 'lady detective'. She has a few servants (two chauffeurs, a butler and a maid whom she treats as her companion) that help her to solve the crimes.

A beautifully made detective series in the tradition of the famous crime novels of the Detection Club (Agatha Christie, G. K. Chesterton, Dorothy L. Sayers, etc.).

  • So Easy to follow!

    The show is absolutely gorgeous in so many ways. the wardrobe is immaculate, the style pieces, furniture, architecture and the mannerisms in which the people around Miss Fisher adopted its right on the spot. The only person out of this era is Miss Fisher herself and that's what makes her so charming and attractive.

    Furthermore the plots! You couldn't even predict what was going to happen halfway through the show, in the end there's always a twist! So I always hang to the last second. and the end credits always has a good song that could have been played in the 20-30's playing to finish it off.

    Definitely recommended for femmes of all ages and genders :Dmoreless
  • Thank you PBS!

    I don't have cable TV, but some of my local PBS channels air a nice selection of mystery shows. Last year I was lucky enough to discover season 1 of 'Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries'. I instantly fell in love with the show and all of the characters. I'd say that Miss Fisher is my favorite sexy and sassy sleuth since Emma Peel of 'The Avengers'. Now I'm just hoping that they'll air season 2 (and crossing fingers for more) soon.moreless
  • A favorite!

    I love this show!! And they are thinking of cancelling it! Pleeease don't!! sign the petition for a third season! And for Gods sake - have the leads come together already - If they end this show without them having gone to bed, or at least kissed properly I think my head might explode!

  • Someone read my mind...
