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 from the shadowy lanes of Melbourne to the halls of academia, from high-class brothels to haute couture. Ignoring the dangers all around her, she seems to glide through life determined to enjoy every moment.
