Phryne Fisher comes to TV

I don't watch a lot of TV. Don't get me wrong. It is always on, but usually just in the background. Even when there is something I think I would like I tend to record it and never actually get around to watching it! I am however sure that will not happen when Kerry Greenwood's Phryne Fisher is shown after being  adapted for TV as a series! I have been trying to find a dedicated trailer but haven't been able to. Instead, you can see a short glimpse of the series in this clip, starting at 1:50.

As soon as there is a proper trailer I will be sure to share it.

Based on just that glimpse the casting seems pretty good, it looks good so hopefully it is!

Along with the TV series, the books in the series are all being rereleased with tie-in covers. Over the years there have been a lot of different cover incarnations for this series. Some have been good, some not quite so! I thought it would be fun to do a bit of a comparison of a couple of the books showing you the cover that my book had when I read it, then my favourites which are the cartoon style covers (oh so much fun and totally fitting the series in my opinion and then the TV tie in.

The first book in the series is Cocaine Blues and here are the three covers:

And here are the covers for the fourth book in the series, Death at Victoria Dock:

  1. Oh, maybe this will make my library buy the rest of the series. They only have 2 of the books.

  2. Depends if it makes it anywhere other than Australia I guess!
