Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries is one of our favourite imported Golden Age crime shows, and a little while back we brought you news that a sequel series – based in the 1960s and titled Ms Fisher’s Modern Mysteries – was being made.
Now we know when it will air in the UK.
Ms Fisher’s Modern Mysteries is set in 1964 and follows Peregrine Fisher (Geraldine Hakewill) inherits a windfall when the famous aunt she never knew, Phryne Fisher, goes missing over the highlands of New Guinea. Peregrine sets out to become a world-class private detective in her own right with the unerring guidance of The Adventuresses’ Club, a group of exceptional women of which her celebrated aunt was a member.
A natural rule breaker, Peregrine is fearless, fun, and charmingly down-to-earth, as well as having a keen instinct for solving crimes. With newfound wealth and The Adventuresses to hone her rough edges and become the family she’s never had, Peregrine is unstoppable.
Here’s a trailer…
