Phryne Fisher is some catch

SHE is the woman women want to be and men want to be with.

With a gun in her garter and murder in her mind, Phryne Fisher is a lady detective with a twist.

More Charlie's Angel than Miss Marple, she's a dagger-throwing, hatchet-hurling, wall-scaling action figure and impeccably glamorous to boot.

A powerhouse of sex appeal and pearl-handled firearms she knows exactly how to get her way in almost any situation and she looks good while doing it.

For Australian TV darling Essie Davis, the role of Fisher in Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries was a delight to play.

"She's fantastic. She's witty and funny, sexy and flirtatious, and would do anything to solve a mystery," Davis gushes.

Based on the series of novels by Kerry Greenwood, this sleuthing show is a 13-part series set in late 1920s Melbourne.

Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries - ABC1 - premiered Friday February 24 at 8.30pm.
