Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries: Series 1 Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

IMDb lists the shooting format of Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries as the Sony CineAlta HD camera, which is consistent with the look of the final product. The series' cinematographer is Australian veteran Roger Lanser, whose varied credits include numerous films with Kenneth Branagh. In the extras, Lanser says that he looked at sources including HBO's Boardwalk Empire and various films by the Coen Brothers to develop the period look of the series.

Acorn Media's 1080i, AVC-encoded Blu-rays for Miss Fisher offer a generally superior image, with a few minor negatives that I'll get to in a moment. As with most digitally acquired projects, the image is generally sharp, clear and detailed, with good black levels and nicely balanced contrast. The color palette is consistent with the distinctive credit sequence in which drips of water (or is it blood?) expand into delicate watercolors of the main characters. Digital color grading has cast a cheerful historical sheen over much of the scenery, even when the subject matter turns dark. Stronger, more saturated colors are used for some of Phryne's more daring outfits, although the alert viewer will notice that, when Phryne wants to be noticed, her signature hue is white.

The minor negatives in the picture are slight but recurrent video noise, primarily in long shots, which may be a function of the 1080i formatting, and a few fleeting "combing" artifacts that would almost certainly be eliminated by 1080p treatment. The latter should not discourage anyone from acquiring the series, because they are so infrequent and flash by so quickly that most viewers will not see them. As the spouses and families of reviewers will confirm, we sometimes (as Horatio said of Hamlet) "consider too curiously".


Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries: Series 1 Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

The original stereo mix for Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries is presented in lossless DTS-HD MA 2.0, and it sets exactly the right tone for the series, because it's most important constituent is the period soundtrack consisting of original tunes from the 1920s (pops and static included) and the stylistically complementary score composed by Greg Walker, who is also responsible for the catchy opening theme. Dialogue is clear and centered, and as seems to be typical of Australian TV, no heavy accents are heard. There is occasional gunplay in Miss Fisher and a few events that might qualify as action sequences, but most of the sound cues are environmental in nature, and the soundtrack handles them capably and gracefully.
