Have you seen Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries, based on Kerry Greenwood's series of books? Phryne Fisher is a rather well-to-do and very independent woman who is a private detective and friends with a female coroner and the local police inspector in 1920s Melbourne, Australia.

I wonder if this inspired CBC to make Frankie Drake.

Indeed I have seen and love 'Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries'.

I'm just waiting, and hoping, that when Essie Davis finishes her current filming commitments we'll finally get to see the movie.

Or trilogy of movies if we're really lucky. Smiley
