Storyline

Phryne Fisher is a glamorous and thoroughly modern woman of the 1920s. She sashays through the back lanes and jazz clubs of Melbourne, fighting injustice with her pearl handled pistol and her dagger-sharp wit. Leaving a trail of admirers in her wake, Phryne makes sure she enjoys every moment of her lucky life. But behind the façade of elegance and charm are the scars of the past which drive Phryne to find justice for those who can't help themselves and to pursue the truth of her own dark history. Based on the novels of Australian author Kerry Greenwood.

Essie Davis
17 July 2019 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

She is...the spice. Her Miss Fisher is provocative, and modern and fancy and...cool. And this is the most important fact because, in many episodes, she is...the story. Short, a serie reminding many others in large lines. More British than Australian. But seductive. For smart performance of Essie Davis, first.
