Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries

Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries (2012-2015) is an Australian television series starring Essie Davies as the wealthy feminist private detective, Phryne Fisher.

The show has been adapted from the 15 detective novels written by Australian writer Kerry Greenwood and is set in and around Melbourne.

There are some episodes which feature care experienced characters. For example, in Series 1, Episode 2, Miss Fisher takes in a girl who has been an exploitative foster care placement.

Unfortunately, in Series 1, too, is a stereotypical serial killer character - Murdoch Foyle -who was raised in foster care.

Apart from Murdoch Foyle, most of the conversation is on the side of girls and women oppressed by men, and in some cases, by other women.
