I adored Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries and this show certainly had big shoes to fill. Whilst I miss Essie's charm, beauty, and class, the casting for this new spin-off series is amazing! I have thoroughly enjoyed the plot both surrounding the murders and with the reoccurring characters' storylines. That being said, I need more episodes/seasons! Episode 4 left a lot open for the show to continue and it did not satisfy viewers I am sure!
This is a spin off of the Miss Fisher Murder Mystery show that has been on for a few years. The premise is that the now elder Miss Fisher is missing and presumed dead and her daughter has come of age and decides to take over the role of private detective.
The early 1960s setting is done extremely well, and the costumes and hair styles are spot on. The young Ms Fisher is the perfect actress and every scene is a gem. They simply could not have cast a more perfect actress.
The "club" of extraordinary woman, I will call it, is filled with strong female characters. The nerdy woman that sings in the second episode is amazing. They could have easily made the show about the club itself without Ms Fisher. The gadget man is an obvious homage to the James Bond "Q" character.
