Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries

by

Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries is undoubtedly my favourite newly discovered costume drama. Set in 1920s Melbourne, portraying  adventures of the glamorous, fearless, sharp as a tack, boundary-breaking and at times outrageous, lady detective, the Honourable Miss Phryne Fisher, played brilliantly by Essie Davis. The ABC Australian TV show is based on the series of detective stories entitled  Phryne Fisher Mysteries written by Kerry Greenwood, and continues to be as much of a success now as it was in 1989 when “Cocaine Blues” the first novel of the series was published.
