Miss Fisher, I presume?

It is set in the Roaring Twenties (albeit in Melbourne, Australia), with a feisty flapper heroine of independent means. It has the most beautiful Art Deco settings, costumes and music. It has hunky men, moody policemen, and preposterously unbelievable murder mysteries that would make Agatha Christie blush - it even has Miriam Margoyles, for heaven's sake!

It's as camp as tits - our latest televisual obsession, Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries:

According to the blurb: "Phryne (pronounced Fry-nee) Fisher is a glamorous and thoroughly modern woman of the 1920s. Our lady sleuth sashays through the back lanes and jazz clubs of Melbourne, fighting injustice with her pearl-handled pistol and her dagger sharp wit." And that's just the half of it...

The show is currently showing on (of all places - we never usually watch it) Alibi TV channel in the UK. Catch it if you can!

  1. Well dear, great minds think alike. I have been watching since 2014 when they started airing it here. It is quite the eye candy.
