Veronique, the widow of famous French painter Pierre Sarcelle visits Phryne to ask her if she has any of her husband's paintings. Phryne does, including a nude portrait of Phryne that Pierre had done just after the First World War. Soon thereafter the visit Veronique mysteriously disappears. Bert and Cec meanwhile witness the hit and run death of a friend. Like them, he was a war veteran. They go to Detective Robinson and Officer Collins and tell them that they think their friend's death was no accident but that he was deliberately run down. When they look into it there's really no evidence that it was anything but an accident so Bert and Cec go to Phryne and ask her to investigate. The episode's plot is pretty thin and not really that interesting. It tries too hard to make clear what a free spirit Phryne is; we already knew that. And the resolution to the mystery itself was pretty lame. The best part of the episode were the scenes between Dot and Mr. Butler. Dot's parish priest is giving her a hard time because she's dating a Protestant. Mr. Butler gets Dot to call the priest's bluff because she is so important to the success of an upcoming church fête. A very amusing couple of scenes. But overall this is the weakest of the episodes I've seen thus far. However, it certainly is still worth a watch.
