Product Description

The Honourable Miss Phryne Fisher is back!

 

The second series of Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries continues to follow the independent, glamorous and unflappable leading lady detective Phryne Fisher (Essie Davis) as she sashays among the fascinating and varied sub cultures of 1920s ‘between-the-wars’ Melbourne. From the shadowy lanes of the city to the halls of academia, from high-class brothels to haute couture, she defends the innocent and juggles admirers with her usual panache, all the while keeping up her delicious dance around Detective Inspector Jack Robinson.

 

Based on the novels by Kerry Greenwood, this DVD set includes all 13 episodes from the second series and a host of extras filmed on location with cast and crew.

5.0 out of 5 stars Even better than the first! 18 Feb 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have actually seen the series and it is absolutely brilliant.
There's never a boring moment with miss Fisher; gang warfare and ghosts and car racing are some of the things to look forward to. As well as Jack finally learning to let his hair down.

After watching the series on tv and being more than a little annoyed by the awful butchering of the episodes - entire scenes cut out that are referred to later in the episode- to fit the time I'm greatly looking forward to finding out what I missed.

I continue to enjoy the lively characters and fascinating mysteries offered by this show. I live in the UK and only heard of this Australian show through a friend, but the characters are easy to like and the show puts in a lot more effort than many other shows bother nowadays.

At the moment season three is hanging in the balance and probably wont be greenlit. If you enjoy the show please sign the petition at Change.org

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Series 20 Feb 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Loved both the series of Miss Fisher on TV and series 2 is even better than the first. This is a good quality drama with excellent production values and great acting.

Getting the DVD is must for anyone who has enjoyed the series on Alibi as some of the scenes they cut are really quite relevant to each individual episode and the whole story arc of the series.

I really do hope the ABC make a 3rd season - fingers crossed!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hooked on Miss Fisher Part II! 19 Feb 2014
By JANEITE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Already halfway thru the second series and realizing just how much Alibi messed with the series. All the bits that supplied continuity to the Phryne/Jack relationship were sacrificed - and the other important characters like Hugh/Dot, Bert/Cec. Miss Fisher's influence on Dot is becoming all to clear and Hugh is having to learn not to patronise her. She's not quite a 'modern woman', but she's on her way ... the burgeoning jealousy of Jack's ex adds dimension to the story - again this was ditched by Alibi. It says a lot for the two leads that viewers didn't abandon the second series but stuck with it in spite of often coming away with a sense of something not quite right with series 2.

Apparently, ABC are umming and ahhing about a third series. Their mindset is that only over 60's watch the series! How wrong they are. Many women today - young and old - would identify and approve of the choices Phryne makes. So go to [...] and learn how to petition them to make a third series.

Re Phryne and Jack's relationship: I think Jack is holding out for exclusivity, meanwhile, his association with Phryne is helping revive the career he had given up on ... which would make for a very interesting series 3.

My advice is the same for series 1: Sell everything, buy this DVD!

ps I've now viewed all four discs and has anyone else noticed that there is a scene missing? In episode 8 after the murder has been discovered and before Phryne arrives at the University, there ought to be a scene where she visits Jack and a quarrel ensues; hence her comments 'two steps behind' and 'I'm afraid I'm going to have to touch you'? Maybe mine is a duff disc. If not, I'll e-mail Acorn soonest. Thanks

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it! 20 Feb 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
My Season 2 DVD's have not arrived yet. However, I could not even wait until the end of February, so I am watching Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries on AcornTV here in the States. The stories are entertaining, costuming absolutely gorgeous, cast on point, and the air of the 20's beguiling. I have become a diehard fan. Australian TV has definitely produced a winner. After watching some of the more heady programming (which I love), it is nice to kick back watching Phryne at work solving crime. Essie Davis is doing a wonderful job with this role. I am looking forward to Season 3!!!!

Excellent entertainment, but not as dark as the first series. It's more lighthearted and centres on the relationship between Phryne and Jack.
