This is actually episode 13 of Season 2, but it was a great idea to hold it over as a Festive occasion. Very British tradition. We could do with a bit more of this, but commercial networks are reluctant because it’s non-ratings season.
The series is yet to be renewed so it’s unclear if this will be the final instalment or not. Hopefully not.
Phryne (Essie Davis), Dot (Ashleigh Cummings) and Dr Mac (Tammy MacIntosh) happily accompany Aunt Prudence (Miriam Margolyes) to a picturesque chalet to celebrate a white Christmas in July. The party arrives to find one of the residents dead – electrocuted while hanging festive lights. No more suspicious than the usual Miss Fisher investigation, until the body count starts to rapidly rise.
Heavy snowfalls and harsh weather trap them all with a murderer in their midst – and any one of them the next victim. It’s a race against time for Phryne and Jack to hunt down the culprit – and restore enough Christmas joy to take full advantage should they find themselves standing under that bunch of mistletoe!
