Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries
The Honorable Miss Phryne Fisher (Essie Davis) is a thoroughly modern woman of the late 1920s operating in a mostly male world. The glamorous "lady detective" goes about her work with a pistol close at hand - and, more often than not, a male admirer even closer. To the dismay of Detective Inspector Jack Robinson (Nathan Page), Phryne's investigations take her through the back alleys, jazz clubs, and shady markets of Melbourne. Ignoring the dangers all around her, she seems to glide through life determined to enjoy every moment. But beneath her devil-may-care attitude, Phryne hides ghosts from the past that continue to haunt her.

Phryne, gorgeous in her sparkling evening gown, had thought she would dance the night away at the hottest dancehall in town, the Green Mill. That was before death spoiled the evening. In jazz-mad 1920s Melbourne, Phryne finds there are hidden perils lurking in the smoky shadows - like a mystery man from her past - and it takes all her ingenuity, and her rusty flying skills, to unravel the trail of blackmail and murder. Directed by Kate Dennis and guest stars Toby Schmitz, Deni Hines, Wendy Hughes, Arthur Angel and Simon Lyndon.
