DIANNE BUTLER OUT OF THE BOX
YOU won’t mind seeing this again, I’d say, knowing how some of you feel about this show. This was the first one, the one where there’s the fantastic bath house at the end. And Miranda Otto plays Phryne Fisher’s friend whose husband’s dead. Terrible tragedy, yes. But she still manages to dress herself in beautiful clothes. As does Phryne and Aunty Prudence and even the ‘‘ I’m a lady’’ doctor Mac. Phryne’s only just off the boat and encounters phlegmatic detective Jack Robinson for the first time, but then has that rumble with the Russian dancer instead.
