Goofs

Although the producers have obviously gone to some trouble to use period firearms suited to the 1920s era, nevertheless Miss Fishers trademark revolver is a Chiefs Special model that was introduced in America on 1950. Similar American revolvers by Smith & Wesson from the 20s era were distinctly different on appearance. See more »

Production Values are fantastic
22 March 2012 | by (Florida, USA) – See all my reviews

I am not familiar with the series of books; I am looking at this as a TV show. The camera work and editing are top notch. This should be purchased and run "as is" on US television. So much of the TV in the USA is frankly bad TV--as is the stuff from Canada (much of which is on USA also.) Is it perfect-award-winning stuff? Possibly not. Does it draw me to watch just as much as the first years of Midsomer Murders? Absolutely yes.

BTW: The main character would have to be older to have had so many adventures and skills. Everything took a bit longer in the 1920s. And, while it is true that many women (all over the world) in the 1920s would be considered to be old maids at 21-years-old, there were a few who scandalously didn't marry until their 30s. The actress is a tad older, but she carries it off rather well--people looked older in the 1920s. She doesn't look hard or wrung out, just lived in.
