"Witty and elegant" - Australian (UK)
"Blockbuster hit" - Sydney Morning Herald

Follow the Honorable Phryne (fry-nee) Fisher through the back alleys, shady markets, and jazz clubs of late 1920s Melbourne. A glamorous lady detective in a mostly male world, she goes about her work with a pearl-handled pistol and dagger-sharp wit, leaving a trail of male admirers in her wake. Essie Davis (Girl with a Pearl Earring) stars in the stylish series based on the best-selling novels by Australian writer Kerry Greenwood. 13 episodes, 11 ¾ hrs, 4 DVDs/3 Blu-ray discs, SDH.

Disc 1

Episode 1: Cocaine Blues

Invited to a relative’s home where a murder has just occurred, Phryne soon finds herself in a world of drug smuggling and illegal abortion. As she sets about solving the first crime, she ends up getting embroiled in the other two.

 

Episode 2: Murder on the Ballarat Train

On a train ride to the country, Phryne saves the life of a fellow passenger—but can’t prevent the death of the young woman’s mother. In tracking down the killer, she picks up a couple of runaway girls and begins to earn the respect of Inspector Jack Robinson.

 

Episode 3: The Green Mill Murder

Phryne goes out for a night of dancing at Melbourne’s top club, but the fun comes to an end after one of the patrons is stabbed to death. When a friend becomes the chief suspect, Phryne not only has to prove he didn’t do it—she has to prove who did.

 

Episode 4: Death at Victoria Dock

The shooting death of a Latvian anarchist sets Phryne off in pursuit of the dead man’s fiancée. In the process, she enters a dangerous underworld and puts not just herself in danger but her maid, Dot, as well.

 

Disc 2

Episode 5: Raisins and Almonds

Phryne investigates a murder in Melbourne’s Jewish community, where the motives are masked by politics, romance, and religion. Though the police make a quick arrest, Phryne believes the key to the case lies in an ancient Hebrew text.

 

Episode 6: Ruddy Gore

Two deaths onstage at a Gilbert and Sullivan show are followed by an attempt on Phryne’s life and, eventually, a new romance in Chinatown. At first Phryne thinks the killings are connected with the modern-day opium trade, but soon she turns her attentions to explanations from the past.

 

Episode 7: Murder in Montparnasse

The widow of a French painter visits Melbourne, reawakening in Phryne memories of her time in Paris after the Great War. When the woman disappears, Phryne begins to fear for the safety of her two assistants, Bert and Cec.

 

Disc 3

Episode 8: Away with the Fairies

When a magazine columnist dies under mysterious circumstances, Phryne finds petty jealousies, deception, and, perhaps, a motive for murder among the dead woman’s colleagues. Following the paper trail, Phryne searches for clues in the writer’s unpublished files.

 

Episode 9: Queen of the Flowers

A leisurely walk along the beach leads to Phryne’s newest case after the body of a young woman washes ashore. Meanwhile, an unexpected visitor shows up at her house—the supposedly dead mother of one of Phryne’s wards.

 

Episode 10: Death by Miss Adventure

A female night-shift worker dies when her hair gets caught in the factory machinery. The police suspect accidental death, but Phryne smells foul play and Dot goes undercover to get at the truth.

 

Disc 4

Episode 11: Blood and Circuses

Phryne joins the circus to investigate a murder the police have little chance of solving—and takes a journey into a dark part of her own past. When Phryne gets some unexpected news, she fears the case closest to her heart may now be closed forever.

 

Episode 12: Murder in the Dark

Suspicion falls on the entire household when a body is found in the pool at Phryne’s aunt’s house on the eve of a lavish party. While Jack Robinson investigates the case, Phryne discovers a link to her sister Janey’s death.

 

Episode 13: King Memses’ Curse

With a madman on the run, Phryne throws caution to the wind in order to find answers she has been seeking since childhood. However, she may have to put herself in the clutches of her nemesis in order to finally lay her ghosts to rest.

Arlene Cozzi from CO on 2/14/2014 1:21:00 PM wrote:

In the books Phrynne has a Chinese lover, whom most of us fell in love with. Why did the producers of the series get rid of him and have Jack Robinson divorce the wife he loved and leave his children to possibly give Miss Fisher a new person to love? Also, I'm not happy about some of the changes made to the stories that kept only the title. The stories (novels) are good in themselves and didn't need to be altered. And if the producers didn't want stories about a woman who practiced free love in the '20's they shouldn't have chosen this series to televise.

Most of the earlier ones were enjoyable, but the last three in the series were scarier than expected, because they revolve around a person who is killing girls for black magic purposes and is uncaught at the end of Series 1.

Loved the books. These were good stories with excellent period costume and sets. Some liberties taken with some of the characters and original plots from the books to streamline them for TV. However, I enjoyed them all!

I have read all the books. When I heard they made a series of the books in Australia, I wanted to obtain a copy. When they became available through Acorn, I was happy and purchased them. The series is good, well done, with good acting. But I do like the books better because they go into greater detail. The TV series also changed a few details in telling of the stories.

The Australian Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries:Series 1 is top-notch. The production's settings and clothing as well as all other production values are some of the best ever. I have read all of the books and was delighted by their transformation to the screen with just a few exceptions. The casting of Phyrne herself is the most important thing for the series and they got it just right. Bravo! I am looking forward to subsequent seasons.

The Quality of Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries Isn't a Mystery

JHAWK from NC on 2/6/2013 12:00:00 AM wrote:

I often forget that the 1920s occurred in every country, not just in the U.S. The Australian Broadcasting production of this series is impeccably done. Miss Fisher is a very liberated woman in the 21st century sense. I also greatly admire the fashions from that area, it still appears so chic. The mysteries are riveting although the outcomes are at times predictable. Melbourne in the 1920s appears to be an exotic place on another planet at times. Overall, it's more than worth the effort to view the entire series. I have a sinking feeling that there won't be subsequent series. Add that, if my prediction becomes true, to another one of life's major disappointments.

I have read all of the Phryne Fisher books and loved them. The TV versions are pretty good too although the stories themselves were somewhat changed. For instance the two taxi fellows, Burt and Cecil, weren't really introduced, so that "non readers" of the books might not understand their relationship with Phryne. A few other "picayunish" things also semi-bothered me. On the whole I enjoyed the videos. By the way, I wanted to get in touch with the author re her other character, Corinne Chapman, the baker supreme! A Britcom actress, Dawn French, would be perfect in that role! She's the "Vicar of Dibley" on PBS. Love that one to pieces, too!

I bought"Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries" simply out of curiosity. I love murder mysteries! And, a surprising little gem it turned out to be. Miss Fisher is a likeable character and she eventually surrounds herself with a formidable cast of characters who assist her in her endeavors. The story lines are very good with challenging turns of events, and with conclusions that often have surprising results!

Disc 1

Episode 1: Cocaine Blues

Invited to a relative’s home where a murder has just occurred, Phryne soon finds herself in a world of drug smuggling and illegal abortion. As she sets about solving the first crime, she ends up getting embroiled in the other two.

 

Episode 2: Murder on the Ballarat Train

On a train ride to the country, Phryne saves the life of a fellow passenger—but can’t prevent the death of the young woman’s mother. In tracking down the killer, she picks up a couple of runaway girls and begins to earn the respect of Inspector Jack Robinson.

 

Episode 3: The Green Mill Murder

Phryne goes out for a night of dancing at Melbourne’s top club, but the fun comes to an end after one of the patrons is stabbed to death. When a friend becomes the chief suspect, Phryne not only has to prove he didn’t do it—she has to prove who did.

 

Episode 4: Death at Victoria Dock

The shooting death of a Latvian anarchist sets Phryne off in pursuit of the dead man’s fiancée. In the process, she enters a dangerous underworld and puts not just herself in danger but her maid, Dot, as well.

 

Episode 5: Raisins and Almonds

Phryne investigates a murder in Melbourne’s Jewish community, where the motives are masked by politics, romance, and religion. Though the police make a quick arrest, Phryne believes the key to the case lies in an ancient Hebrew text.

 

Disc 2

Episode 6: Ruddy Gore

Two deaths onstage at a Gilbert and Sullivan show are followed by an attempt on Phryne’s life and, eventually, a new romance in Chinatown. At first Phryne thinks the killings are connected with the modern-day opium trade, but soon she turns her attentions to explanations from the past.

 

Episode 7: Murder in Montparnasse

The widow of a French painter visits Melbourne, reawakening in Phryne memories of her time in Paris after the Great War. When the woman disappears, Phryne begins to fear for the safety of her two assistants, Bert and Cec.

 

Episode 8: Away with the Fairies

When a magazine columnist dies under mysterious circumstances, Phryne finds petty jealousies, deception, and, perhaps, a motive for murder among the dead woman’s colleagues. Following the paper trail, Phryne searches for clues in the writer’s unpublished files.

 

Episode 9: Queen of the Flowers

A leisurely walk along the beach leads to Phryne’s newest case after the body of a young woman washes ashore. Meanwhile, an unexpected visitor shows up at her house—the supposedly dead mother of one of Phryne’s wards.

 

Disc 3

Episode 10: Death by Miss Adventure

A female night-shift worker dies when her hair gets caught in the factory machinery. The police suspect accidental death, but Phryne smells foul play and Dot goes undercover to get at the truth.

 

Episode 11: Blood and Circuses

Phryne joins the circus to investigate a murder the police have little chance of solving—and takes a journey into a dark part of her own past. When Phryne gets some unexpected news, she fears the case closest to her heart may now be closed forever.

 

Episode 12: Murder in the Dark

Suspicion falls on the entire household when a body is found in the pool at Phryne’s aunt’s house on the eve of a lavish party. While Jack Robinson investigates the case, Phryne discovers a link to her sister Janey’s death.

 

Episode 13: King Memses’ Curse

With a madman on the run, Phryne throws caution to the wind in order to find answers she has been seeking since childhood. However, she may have to put herself in the clutches of her nemesis in order to finally lay her ghosts to rest.

I had never heard of this series but was intrigues by the "look" which immediately brought memories of Lord Peter Wimsey. It was a happy experiment. The Wimsey look is there but it has its own flavor with a delightful heroine, wonderful costuming and attractive Australian scenery. Highly recommended.

Beautiful! Love Phryne Fisher!

Mystery Mom from CA on 2/2/2013 12:00:00 AM wrote:

Very enjoyable, and my only dislike is that she often becomes romantically involved at the drop of a hat. Sometimes it makes sense with the story, and sometimes not. Seems a little gratuitous, but if you think of her as a female James Bond character, then perhaps it is not as out of place as it seems. After all, she is an independent woman of means in the late 1920s, in the wild and crazy country of Australia. It just sends mixed messages, as she is seen truly caring for people, and then bedding some man when we barely know who he is in the story. I watch these with my teenage daughter, (who writes her own stories), and we discussed this while watching. We are avid "period" mystery fans, Poirot, Miss Marple, Tommy and Tuppence, Mrs. Bradley, Lord Peter Whimsey, Murdoch Mysteries, Nero Wolfe, Castle, Hitchcock, and other films and novels. The wardrobe for Miss Fisher, in particular, is amazing - gorgeous and accurately designed for the period. The acting is good, and the characters real.
