Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries Season 1

Tuesdays at 8 p.m.
Miss Fisher Murder Mysteries

On March 16, Murder In Montparnasse, Phryne is reminded of her days in Paris and confronts her past while tracking down a murderer..

The Honorable Miss Phryne Fisher (Essie Davis, Girl with a Pearl Earring) is a thoroughly modern woman of the late 1920s operating in a mostly male world. The glamorous “lady detective” goes about her work with a pistol close at hand-and, more often than not, a male admirer even closer. To the dismay of Detective Inspector Jack Robinson (Nathan Page, The Secret Life of Us), Phryne’s investigations take her through the back alleys, jazz clubs, and shady markets of Melbourne. Ignoring the dangers all around her, she seems to glide through life determined to enjoy every moment. But beneath her devil-may-care attitude, Phryne hides ghosts from the past that continue to haunt her.

The series is set in 1920s Melbourne, Australia.

The Bletchley Circle Season 2

Tuesdays at 9 p.m.

Season 2 starts on March 16. The Bletchley CircleĀ follows four ordinary women with the extraordinary ability to break codes. In the first episode of Season 2, a former codebreaker is accused of murder, and the women are persuaded to investigate.

Set in 1952, The Bletchley Circle tells the story of four ordinary women who have returned to their normal lives after working as codebreakers at Bletchley Park during World War II, work that produced crucial intelligence that helped the Allies to victory while shortening the war. Susan, a housewife and mother, has a steely determination that is not to be underestimated. After not doing anything adventurous for nine years, she decides to try to solve the unresolved murders of Jane Hart and Patricia Oakes, having spotted a pattern of behavior that no one else has discovered. But the police refuse to take her theory seriously when she approaches them. So Susan realizes she must take matters into her own hands and bring the culprit to justice with the help of her former friends and fellow code-breakers.
