The wealthy aristocrat detective that is Phryne Fisher — she with the to-die-for wardrobe, red Hispano-Suiza automobile, and pearl-handled gold pistol — is up to her cheekbones in new mysteries when the second series of Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries begins screening on local public television stations starting tomorrow.

Based on the series of Phryne Fisher Mysteries novels by Australian author Kerry Greenwood, and starring Aussie native Essie Davis (whom you may remember from the last two Matrix movies), the thirteen new episodes will have Phryne investigating murders amongst showgirls and spiritualists and in the worlds of Australian football and French haute couture.

As always, conducting the official police investigations are Detective John Robinson (Nathan Page, Underbelly), better known as Jack to Phryne, and Constable Hugh Collins (Hugo Johnstone-Burt, Home and Away) — both of whom get to see a side of Phryne they had never seen before (ahem) in the Series 2 opener.
