New Bingeable Mysteries to Stream on Hoopla (or borrow on DVD)!: Queens of Mystery and Ms. Fisher’s MODern Murder Mysteries

22 Jan

As you know from several previous posts I love Hoopla, one of our library’s streaming services, because it provides so many amazing mystery TV shows from all over the world.  I’m excited to share with you two of my latest favorites.  You’ll be glad Hoboken resident patrons get 10 checkouts from Hoopla per month, because these are very bingeable.

In Queens of Mystery, English Detective Matilda Stone has just returned to the village she grew up in.  Despite being told not to involve them her three mystery novelist aunts Beth, Cat and Jane Stone can’t resist meddling in her cases. Each mystery spans two episodes of the six episodes in the first season.    An interesting insightful feature is that the narrator of the series occasionally gives us a peak into what characters are thinking, setting up romantic interests, or funny character personalities we wouldn’t otherwise get. It has the quirky charm that will attract fans of Pushing Daisies, Agatha Raisin, and USA classics like Psych and Monk. Queens of Mystery is also available on DVD from Hoboken and other BCCLS libraries.

Ms. Fisher’s MODern Murder Mysteries

Phryne Fisher is my favorite fictional detective and I’m a huge fan of the TV show adaptation of Kerry Greenwood’s books. So, I was excited to learn that there was a spin off series, Ms. Fisher’s MODern Murder Mysteries, featuring her niece Peregrine Fisher.  Peregrine decides to follow in the footsteps of her famous aunt who is currently missing.  It is fun to compare Melbourne in the 1920’s of Phryne’s era with the mod sixties setting of this series.  Peregrine gets assistance in her crime solving from her aunt’s friends at the Adventuresses’ Club.  If you are a fan of Phryne’s definitely check this one out.  There are four TV movies in the series. You can also borrow the series on DVD if you prefer.
