Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries, adapted from Australian author Kerry Greenwood’s beloved book series, and its spin-off series, Ms. Fisher’s Modern Murder Mysteries, follow, respectively, the honourable and always fashionable Phryne and Peregrine Fisher as they commit themselves to righting injustice and solving Melbourne’s most perplexing crimes.
Making an audacious generational leap from the late 1920s to the swinging sixties, the original series will have you hooked – and the spin-off will reel you in like a murderer on a Fisher’s rod!
Both seasons of Ms Fisher’s Modern Murder Mysteries and all three seasons of Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries are available to binge ad-free and on-demand on Acorn TV now.
MS. FISHER’S MODERN MURDER MYSTERIES – SEASONS 1 & 2
The swinging sixties crime series, Ms. Fisher’s Modern Murder Mysteries, follows the fearless and spirited Peregrine Fisher (Logie Award-nominated Geraldine Hakewill, Wanted, Wakefield), the niece of the world-class adventuress and private detective Phryne Fisher, as she inherits a windfall from her famous aunt and sets out to become an exceptional sleuth in her own right.
As murders continue to plague the streets of 1964 Melbourne, daring detective Peregrine Fisher tackles her trickiest assignment yet: juggling her career, the busy life of an Adventuress and her romance with Detective James Steed (Joel Jackson, Peter Allen: Not the Boy Next Door, Deadline Gallipoli). Playful but never mocking, exuberant but never naive, Peregrine Fisher continues her mission to do the legacy of her famous aunt justice, to find her way in changing times and to make a difference in the world.
Ms. Fisher’s Modern Murder Mysteries also stars Louisa Mignone (Rake), Toby Truslove (Utopia), Catherine McClements (Tangle) and Greg Stone (Blue Heelers).
MISS FISHER’S MURDER MYSTERIES – SEASONS 1-3
Based on the popular detective novels by Kerry Greenwood, the gorgeously costumed and evocatively shot Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries stars Essie Davis (Girl with a Peral Earring, Cloudstreet) as the honourable Miss Phryne Fisher, a thoroughly modern woman of the late 1920s operating in a mostly male world. The glamorous “lady detective” goes about her work with a pistol close at hand – and, more often than not, a male admirer even closer.
Over three seasons, Phryne Fisher burst the boundaries that still confined women after the Great War and committed herself to solving the city’s evermore confounding murder cases, challenging conventions and redressing injustices wherever she could.
Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries also stars Hugo Johnstone-Burt (Cloudstreet), Ashleigh Cummings (Tomorrow, When the War Began), Miriam Margolyes (Little Dorrit) and Nathan Page (Escape from Pretoria).
