Trivia

Review from The New York Times, 10 October 2018 (by Maria Theresa Hart): "A whodunit series from Australia, "Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries" is ideal background TV for fans of old-fashioned thrillers. Set in Melbourne in the late 1920s, the show follows Phryne Fisher (a sparkling Essie Davis), a self-described "lady detective." Each episode follows a basic formula and is self-contained, kicking off with a murder and closing with the captured killer, which is a snap to follow no matter how many browser tabs you have open. And a huge part of the show's appeal comes from Miss Fisher's spectacularly glamorous flapper ensembles, all topped off with coordinated cloche hats. These outfits, like Miss Fisher's quippy one-liners, can be appreciated as isolated diversions by even the most distracted viewer." See more »

Goofs

Although set in the 20s, at least two songs used for background mood, "My baby Just Cares for Me" and "Minnie the Moocher" were written in the 30s. See more »

Sultry and Stunning Period Mystery Series
30 November 2013 | by robin-72-718219See all my reviews

As a life long mystery buff,I find "Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries" to be a real treat. The series is very reminiscent of Agatha Christie's "Marple" (with Geraldine McEwan ) and "Poirot" (with David Suchet). There's just something special about period murder mysteries, perhaps it's the lack of high tech machines that do our sleuthing for us, a la CSI, or maybe it's the romanticism of the period itself. Regardless, Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries is expertly produced from exquisite wardrobe & makeup, to lush shooting locations and breathtaking cinematography. Every element of the production is done with such attention to detail, you loose yourself in the story. The two leads, Essie Davis as Miss Phryne Fisher and Nathan Page as Detective Jack Robinson are perfect in their roles. Having watched each episode thus far, I cannot imagine anyone else portraying these delightful characters and their chemistry is undeniable. The entire cast is great, the characters are well thought out and multi-dimensional. The episodes are also well done, peppered with historical information and accuracy. I would highly recommend "Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries" to any mystery buff, it's a modern classic done in the period style of the roaring 20's.
