Dead Air (#211H) Duration: 55:05 STEREO TVPG-V

There's a new wireless in the Fisher household - but there's murder on the airwaves when Dot's favorite show is interrupted by an on air panic. The radio station's bookkeeper and budding announcer is found choked to death but when Phryne gets involved, she finds Jack already undercover as the newsreader. In an ironic turnaround, Phryne is officially engaged to investigate the death - as Jack resorts to more clandestine investigative strategies. In the cut and thrust of the investigation, Dot suffers the terrible realization that she doesn't want to relinquish working for Miss Fisher when she marries and takes up her wifely duties.

Framed for Murder (#209H) Duration: 53:31 STEREO TVPG-V

A journey into the twilight world of silent movies.

She steps in to solve the crime and save the production - juggling the roles of principal investor and private investigator.

Death on the Vine (#210H) Duration: 56:25 STEREO TVPG-V

When Phryne arrives at an idyllic vineyard in the countryside to investigate a suspicious death in the past, she lands in the middle of an annual Wine Festival and the recent murder of her own 'client'. She feels obligated to investigate his death and continue with her original case, but the hostile townsfolk decide she's outstayed her welcome and do everything they can to drive her away. Phryne realizes that the scenic town has harbored grief over the loss of nearly all their able-bodied men forever a decade - but their loss has turned to anger, directed squarely at the German family who has run Voigts winery since the turn of the century. Hugh happily rescues dot from the threatening town as he nervously prepares for the most perfect, poetic proposal he can muster.

Unnatural Habits (#212H) Duration: 52:56 STEREO TVPG-V

Based on Kerry Greenwood's book 'Unnatural Habits'. The gothic world of the Magdalene Laundries - a halfway house for pregnant and wayward girls, run by Catholic nuns - sets the scene for the tragic death of an escaping teenager. AS Phryne becomes more suspicious of the goings-on behind the convent walls, she and Jack realize the threads of this crime lead higher up and closer to home than they ever suspected? The return of Jack's father-in-law - now Chief Commissioner Sanderson - his ex-wife, Rosie and her dashing beau - offers a chilling insight into extent of police corruption in Jack's hometown.

A Christmas Murder (#213H) Duration: 54:14 STEREO TVPG-V

Phryne, Dot and Dr. Mac happily accompany Aunt Prudence to a picturesque chalet to celebrate a white Christmas in July. The party arrives to find one of the residents dead - electrocuted while hanging festive lights. No more suspicious than the usual Miss Fisher investigation, until the body count starts to rapidly rise. Heavy snowfalls and harsh weather trap them all with a murderer in their midst - and any one of them the next victim. It's a race against time for Phryne and Jack to hunt down the culprit - and restore enough Christmas joy to take full advantage should they find themselves standing under that bunch of that mistletoe!
