Friday Oct 26: Deb Cox & Fiona Eagger – The heightened world of the Murder Mystery
There is plenty to love about the ABC TV series Miss Fishers Murder Mysteries: a thoroughly modern, gorgeous
and glamorous leading lady detective (Essie Davis); the elegant period locations and costumes recreating 1920s
Melbourne; the sharp repartee between Phryne and her love interest Jack not to mention the fascination around
a succession of murder intrigues. It’s no surprise that this series has had Australian audiences tantalised by its
elegance, wit and the details of its period reconstruction.
Meet Deb Cox and Fiona Eagger, the talented creators of Miss Fishers Murder Mysteries, and find out how they
went about bringing Kerry Greenwood’s characters and the splendid period milieu to life
