Often assisting their investigations are Detective Inspector Jack Robinson (Nathan Page, The Secret Life of Us) and Constable Hugh Collins (Hugo Johnstone-Burt, Cloudstreet). Jack finds Phryne’s eager interest in his cases exasperating, but he comes to rely on her crime-solving instincts—and is increasingly captivated by her other charms. John Noble (Fringe, Sleepy Hollow) guest stars in this series of the hit Australian drama.

Self-indulgent flapper Miss Fisher and her world are Hotsy-Totsy. Nifty! Kerry Greenwood, who's novels are adapted, calls this TV series "Perfect". Sets -locations- costumes -props, all the Bees Knees. Worth more than 5-stars, like Poirot, Downton Abbey, and Midsomer Murders. Ritzy 1920s Jazz included.
Flapper Period Bliss! I'm hoping for a ten-season run.
Phryne Fisher was a dame, brisk, but also innately kind, wealthy but hasn't lost the memory of her past poverty. She was heartwarming, sexy, funny, gutsy, intelligent, and late 29s modern-lady perfection. This arrogant, brash, flirt carried a .38, a diaphragm, and was a kleptomaniac with crime scene evidence items. Phryne (pronounced Fry-nee) was spiffily played by Essie Davis (Girl with a Pearl Earring). A PI, always a step ahead of the local cops, not unlike Poirot, Miss Marple, and Sherlock. Cops DI Jack (Nathan Page) and Constable Hugh (Hugo Johnstone-Burt -`Cloudstreet'); both deserved "Hugo" accolades. The last of the every episode cast was Dot (Ashleigh Cummings) a darling maid. All Aussies, like the production, but it was NOT Outback stereotyped.
SDH SUBTITLES FOR 13 new episodes as well as nearly an episode-length of bonus.
1 Murder Most Scandalous -PI Phrynbe's undercover fan dances while the Dep.Comm. is investigated for floozy murder.
2 Death Comes Knocking -A seance is 1st clue to 2 WWI murders but Phryne asks vets for 1916 battlefield accounts.
3 Dead Man's Chest - Burglary case turns to triple homicide and secrets beyond 'who-dun-it.'
4 Deadweight -Fight throwing and illegal bets is sure to lead to a murder. See it ringside.
5 Murder a la Mode -More to it than just murder via hairpin at a high fashion salon.Read more ›
Now that I’ve encouraged you to start with Series One, I’ll turn my attention to this product – I don't see the BD version listed on Amazon yet - The actual release date is May 27th - I was provided a review copy by the distributor - but Amazon usually combines DVD and BD versions anyway. The Bluray of Series Two. There are a few reasons to get the BD versus the standard DVD and watching it on Amazon Instant or one of the streaming services. The BD has great images and you’ll probably hear the great 20s jazzy score better via BD. But, if you need to settle for the DVD, that’s fine too. I know a lot of folks stream, but in this case you will miss nearly an hour of bonus material on the DISC version. More about that in a minute.
As for the murders in the 13 episodes this season, they really take a back seat to the relationships of the main characters. Each episode starts by showing a murder. Then comes the opening credits and then it’s time for Phryne Fisher to get involved. And is every case the screen writers have had Phryne be “connected” to the victim or their family. This year there are murders in fancy dress salons, at a race course, at a vineyard and- my favorite – a radio station. (I don’t consider the previous sentence a “spoiler”.Read more ›
"There's been a murder, Mr. Butler."
"Does that mean there'll be one less for dinner?"
or how about:
(referring to Phryne [that's FRY-nee] on the telephone)
"It's Miss Fisher. She's on holiday again."
"Any murders yet?"
"Just one, sir."
I love it.
The first series of MISS FISHER'S MURDER MYSTERIES was an absolute delight. The Greta Garbo/Jean Harlow hybrid that IS the ineffable Essie Davis as Miss Phryne Fisher is back and in this reviewer's opinion, Series 2 is even better!
This outstanding Australian series is a breath of fresh air in the Detective/Mystery genre for a number of reasons: the acting, the scripting, the wit and taste in every aspect of production. If I had to single out one element that is perhaps the defining feature of this program, it would be the absolute perfection of the costuming, particularly the endless display of style and elegance that comprise Essie Davis' wardrobe. This might seem like an unusual emphasis when discussing a mystery series but it is apt in this case. Clothes define the character and the period (remember, this series is set gloriously in the 1920s). It also helps that the wonderful Ms Davis is a natural clothes horse, with the perfect figure for '20s fashion, matching her sexy, fine china-like beauty.
Of course there is plenty of action, too, with Phryne's reliable colleagues on the police force, namely Detective Inspector Jack Robinson and Constable Hugh Collins, both providing plenty of testosterone when needed (as do Phryne's two reliable "gofers", Bert and Cec--a great pair).Read more ›
