Death Comes Knocking (#202H) Duration: 55:37 STEREO TVPG-V

Phryne plays host to ghostly soldiers and exotic spiritualists. Aunt Prudence is swept up in the new spiritualist fad and enlists the famed Mrs. Bolkonsky to contact her dead godson, Lieutenant-Colonel Roland Claremont. The seance leaves Phryne certain there is something amiss - but it has nothing to do with the psychic realm. A message from beyond the grave leads to the death of a war veteran and Phryne uncovers a past murder that lay buried in the battle field for more than ten years - before returning to haunt the perpetrators.

In the fast-moving world of an all-women's motorcar garage, Phryne's mechanic Ailsa is preparing for an annual rally put on by the Victorian Automobile Association.

The crash deals a solid blow to the case for women drivers and has Phryne up in arms struggling to convince Jack that her friend's death was no accident. Jack has his own inner battle to contend with - coming to terms with the absolute desolation he experienced when he mistakenly thought the motorcar accident involved Phryne Fisher - and decides that he needs to step away.

As they step around each other to investigate the murder and the disappearance of a valuable manuscript - the Book of Hours of Juana the Mad - a web of college pranking, politics and eugenics theory looks set to unravel. Not only do they solve the crime, but Jack and Phryne accept they work better together - in the interests of 'law and order'!
