Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries: Murder in the Dark

Murder in the Dark

Season 1, Episode 12

Phryne's cousins and Aunt Prudence's entire household come under suspicion when a young girl is found drowned in her aunt's fountain on the eve of a lavish fancy dress party. Phryne and her aunt work together to investigate -- until Phryne begins to doubt her own detecting skills. Was Murdoch Foyle really the man responsible for her sister's death or was it someone much closer to Phryne -- someone who was also there the day Janey disappeared from the circus all those years ago? When Foyle finally shows his hand, Phryne recovers her confidence -- only to have it replaced by terror when she fears Foyle now has Jane in his sights. Directed by Daina Reid and guest stars Felix Williamson, Kate Jenkinson and John Lloyd Fillingham.
