Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries: Season 3 Reviews

  • Jun 26, 2021

    Based on Kerry Greenwood's excellent crime novels, it is historically absolutely accurate while still being fast, glamorous and funny. Phryne is one of the best written lead characters on television (male or female) and the costumes are as stunning as she is: she shines throughout while the writing and direction allow the ensemble their own grace notes.... The mystery plots, humour and pace are excellent, the characters have genuine accents of their class and time, and perhaps best of all, it's wonderful to see 1928 Melbourne, Australia particularly St Kilda portrayed perfectly.

    I love this show, the 1920s setting, the glamorous and super-cool heroine, the charming police inspector and other good supporting characters, the twisty whodunnit plots self-contained in each episode. It's a lot of fun to watch. Ps. she doesn't 'moonlight'; being a private detective is her job, although it's true that as she has independent means she seems to spend more time just investigating things because she gets mixed up in murders in her daily activities among her acquaintances... and to help out the police, than actually being paid for it. It's not exactly realistic how she just comes across murders all the time by accident, but it's fine to suspend your disbelief about that ! :-)
