Miss Fisher and her fans: how a heroine on Australia’s small screen became a global phenomenon

Journal Article


Abstract


  • A heavily disguised Phryne (Essie Davis) is racing through the streets of Palestine, pursued by armed men. Excitement mounts. Having athletically eluded all attempts to capture her, Phryne sheds her indigo robes to emerge in a sparkling gold dress framed against the skyline like the superhero she has indubitably become.
