Storyline

A journey into the twilight world of silent movies. Hollywood has a stranglehold on the Australian industry and with 'talkies' on the way, the exotic 'Bride of Babylon' production is in serious jeopardy. With one of Phryne's oldest friends producing the movie, she has no choice but to get involved when the lead actor is murdered on set. She steps in to solve the crime and save the production - juggling the roles of principal investor and private investigator. The show must go on, and when the director is also killed, Phryne takes the reins. Written by Every Cloud Productions

End of episode 9 season 2
10 October 2015 | by See all my reviews

Liked everything in episode till Phrane was shown in bed with a black , an in an ankle chain. I am an African American woman, and I am insulted by the depiction of a man of African descent in chains. The story did not do anything of that nature with any of her other lovers, including an Asian man. In other period shows, such as "The Murdock Mysteries",depicted, racism of the period including Black on Black crime, but did not give a sense that racism is OK, by making a tongue in cheek joke as may have been meant in the scene. I did not find it funny or cute. I like the series, and recommended it to my friends, but no more. I will miss watching the series, and I will recommend my friends stop watching as well.
