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!

The Honorable Miss Phryne Fisher disembarks the Orient at Victoria Dock, returning to Melbourne after years abroad.

Her adventure reaches its steamy end in the Turkish Bath Palace off Little Lonsdale Street. Directed by Tony Tilse and guest stars Miranda Otto, Maria Mercedes and Kristof Piechocki.

Murder on the Ballarat Train (#102H) Duration: 55:28 STEREO TVPG-V

The glamorous Phryne Fisher, accompanied by her maid Dot, decides to travel to the country by train to collect her new Hispano-Suiza motor car. The charm of rail travel soon evaporates though, when Phryne unexpectedly has to use her trusty pearl-handled pistol to save a young woman's life and solve the disappearance of her fellow passenger's mother. Her train trip derailed by a gruesome murder, Phryne speeds home in her Hispano-Suiza to her new abode in St Kilda where she works through the clues until she discovers her unassuming murderer. Directed by Kate Dennis and guest stars Maeve Dermody, Abbe Holmes, David Berry, Dale March and Jacek Koman.

Upcoming Broadcasts:

The Green Mill Murder (#103H) Duration: 56:20 STEREO TVPG-V

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.

Upcoming Broadcasts:

Death at Victoria Dock (#104H) Duration: 57:22 STEREO TVPG-V

A young man with a blue tattoo lies cradled in Phryne's arms. Sadly, it's not another scene of glorious seduction. This time it's murder. Outraged by this brutal slaughter, Phryne promises to find out who is responsible. But Phryne doesn't yet know how deeply into the mire she'll have to go - bank robbery, anarchists and the kidnap of her beloved maid Dot. Her investigations lead her into the arms of the delicious yet dangerous anarchist, Peter the Painter. Directed by Tony Tilse and guest stars Jack Finsterer, Talia Zucker, Robert Grubb, Renai Caruso and Penne Hackforth-Jones.

Upcoming Broadcasts:

Raisins and Almonds (#105H) Duration: 56:42 STEREO TVPG-V

When a young man is found dead in a bookshop at the Eastern Market, Phryne Fisher is plunged into the diverse worlds of Jewish politics, alchemy, and poison. She works her way through the mystery with help from the old faithfuls - Bert, Cec, Dot, Dr Mac and Detective Inspector Jack Robinson. Ultimately, though, it's her stealth and wit that solve the crime - and all for the price of a song. . . . Directed by David Caesar and guest stars Kat Stewart, Tim Draxl, Brian Lipson and Adam Schmerl.
