Ms Fisher’s Modern Murder Mysteries
(Seven) Peregrine ( GERALDINE HAKEWILL), replacing her Aunt Phryne who’s gone missing in New Guinea, is the leading lady in this Sixties-set spin-off of the much-loved Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries. Flushed with her inherited wealth, the gorgeously reckless Peregrine finally stumbles on the right career when she becomes a world-class private eye with the help of Phryne’s old mentors from The Adventuresses’ Club. With Detective James Steed ( JOEL JACKSON), a smart, ambitious cop who’s instantly attracted to her as her sleuthing partner, no case will be beyond Peregrine’s grasp as she takes instruction and guidance from her aunt’s old friend, the steely-minded, World War II vet Birdie ( CATHERINE MCCLEMENTS). The first of four telemovies airs early in the New Year. Can’t wait!
