Disc 1

Episode 1: Murder Most Scandalous

Jack's ex-father-in-law—the deputy commissioner of police—is implicated in the murder of a prostitute, and Jack and Phryne combine their efforts to get to the bottom of the case. While Jack plays it by the book, Phryne goes undercover as a showgirl at a gentleman's club, where her fan dance starts to make the feathers fly.

 

Episode 2: Death Comes Knocking

A séance to contact a soldier killed in World War I leads to two murders in Melbourne a decade after the war's end. Despite the claims of the spiritualist conducting the séance, Phryne prefers to rely on the memories of three army veterans to find out what really happened on the battlefield in France.

 

Episode 3: Dead Man's Chest

Phryne begins by looking into a burglary at the home of an establishment family fallen on hard times—but ends up investigating three murders. Although a local ring of smugglers seems implicated in the crimes, Phryne finds the family has more than a few secrets that it's desperate to keep hidden.

 

Episode 4: Deadweight

The police try to channel an outbreak of gang warfare into the boxing ring, but when someone stabs a gang member to death, Phryne and Jack get embroiled in the dangerous world of fight-rigging and illegal betting. Constable Collins goes a step further, pulling on a pair of gloves and stepping into the ring himself.

 

Disc 2

Episode 5: Murder à la Mode

Phryne goes for a fitting at an exclusive fashion salon and finds that another customer has been killed with her own hairpin. It's the latest in a series of disasters for the salon, but Phryne finds that while haute couture is facing hard times, another profit-making enterprise is on the rise.

 

Episode 6: Marked for Murder

The captain of a local football team is found hanged before a game against the crosstown rivals, who appear to be the likely suspects. However, Phryne and Jack find evidence that the man may have killed himself and have to figure out why someone might want to make a suicide look like a murder.

 

Episode 7: Blood at the Wheel

A pioneering female racing driver dies after her car is tampered with, and the race against a rival men's team looks set to be abandoned. When it emerges that she was strangled after the accident, Phryne decides to get behind the wheel of the investigation into the woman's death.

 

Disc 3

Episode 8: The Blood of Juana the Mad

Medical students assembled for an anatomy lecture are shocked to find the cadaver they expected is actually the fresh corpse of one of their professors. The mystery deepens after a valuable 16th-century manuscript belonging to the professor vanishes. Now estranged, Phryne and Jack step around each other as they try to diagnose the case.

 

Episode 9: Framed for Murder

The on-set death of the leading man jeopardizes the future of The Bride of Babylon, an Australian silent movie trying to fend off competition from Hollywood. As an investor in the film, Phryne is called in to investigate. When the director is also killed, Phryne decides to direct the proceedings herself.

 

Episode 10: Death on the Vine

A vineyard owner hires Phryne to look into a suspicious death, but by the time she gets to the remote town, he's dead, too. The locals are hostile to her inquiries, especially the town's police sergeant, and Phryne calls a certain detective inspector from Melbourne for help.

 

Disc 4

Episode 11: Dead Air

A bookkeeper and budding announcer at a city radio station is found choked to death, the latest in a succession of incidents threatening to put new stations out of business. In a reversal of roles, by the time Phryne is brought in to investigate, Jack has already established himself as an undercover newsreader.

 

Episode 12: Unnatural Habits

When the body of a drowned and bound young woman is traced to a nuns' home for “wayward girls,” the new chief commissioner—stressing the need for diplomacy in dealing with the church—takes Jack off the case. It's left to Phryne to expose the goings-on behind the convent walls.

 

Episode 13: Murder under the Mistletoe

Phryne and company head to a chalet to celebrate “Christmas in July,” but when they get there they find one of the residents dead, electrocuted while hanging festive lights. Two other deaths quickly follow, though not before Jack and Constable Collins arrive on the scene and Phryne begins to figure out which of the chalet's residents might be the next victim.

Disc 2

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.

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.

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!

This is a truly excellent Australian Mysteries series. The BD was a nice collection with some nice special features. Looking forward to Series 2 and on. Maybe PBS or someone will pick this up and give it a change here. I'd love more people to get to know this wonderful show.

A HAPPY SURPRISE

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!

I love the P Fisher books, so I was so excited to see they have made a series! I have viewed the first of the three dvd's. They are so well done, Beautiful costumes and scenery. True to the books. For those of us who love the books, the dvd's are too short and don't go as deep into the story as one would wish. Still, I love Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries!

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.

I'd never heard of this series before, and ordered blindly. Loved every episode. It is a delight to the eye, (set design and costuming) and stories are charming.

We love this series. We have now watched nine of the thriteen episodes and are sad we're coming toward the end. We can't wait for the next installments. The mysteries are solid and they make sense. The two leads are charming and attractive. The production values are excellent. It is politely sexy and very witty. What more can we say. We bought it from the photo on the ad and we are thrilled with it. How come PBS hasn't discovered this series. It's the best mystery, comedy, charming series ever.
