Miss Fisher MM.jpg

The death of Dr. Mac's university colleague draws Phryne and Jack back together to solve a murder involving a smart but understandably paranoid female student.

9pm Tuesday MISS FISHER’S MURDER MYSTERIES Crime Drama - Amateur detective Phryne Fisher is known for her sharp wit and pearl-handled pistol, which she uses to fight injustice in Melbourne during the 1920s. The glamorous sleuth makes her way through the city's alleyways and jazz clubs while she fights crime.

The death of Dr Mac's university colleague pulls Phryne and Jack from their estrangement to untangle a murder that involves a brilliant but rightfully paranoid female student.


Dr. Mac asks Phryne and Jack to work together when the body of Professor Katz turns up in an anatomy lecture. While trying to solve the murder, Phryne and Jack also investigate the disappearance of a valuable manuscript.

When the fresh corpse of Professor Katz turns up in place of a cadaver in Dr Mac's anatomy lecture, she demands that Phryne and Jack - now estranged - work together in her interest. As they step around each other to investigate the murder and the disappearance of a valuable manuscript - the Book of Hours of Juana the Mad - a web of college pranking, politics and eugenics theory looks set to unravel. Not only do they solve the crime, but Jack and Phryne accept they work better together - in the interests of 'law and order'.
