Trivia

A chalk outline of the body on the bathroom floor. TV and movie writers love the chalk outline. However, in the real world the outline is only used if a body must be moved before the crime scene examination is complete. Prosecutors hate the 'chalk fairy', that never identified cop who can't resist tampering with a crime scene and thus calling into question any physical evidence present. See more »

Goofs

Before speaking to Sasha, Phryne picks up a glass containing red liquid. When she puts her glass on the mantel to dance with Sasha the liquid is golden. See more »

Quotes

Dorothy 'Dot' Williams: Miss, about the job. I don't know what my priest will think of your... guns and knives... and dancing.
Phryne Fisher: Considering your last employers were a drug baroness and a rapist, surely he'd find me a modest improvement.

why did she?... wait, what?!
12 January 2015 | by See all my reviews

I tried to give this show a chance, but I just couldn't manage it. I could almost forgive her snooping around at the death of her dead relative, but then she (inexplicably) follows her roommate around as she does her work as a doctor, and then (inexplicably) starts snooping around the lives of the random people that are admitted to the hospital. Naturally, the random hospital patient whose private life she injected herself into is linked in some way to the death that she had previously nosed into. At that point, I basically checked out. It was just too sloppy and contrived. Apparently some people like it, or perhaps it improves a lot in subsequent episodes. I thought it was awful, and I generally like all of the genres that it falls into (woman-lead, period drama, mystery).
