In this spin-off to the wildly popular Australian mystery series, Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries, Phryne Fisher’s long-lost niece, Peregrine (Geraldine Hakewill), decides to follow in her stylish footsteps as a lady detective for a new era.

Sister Boniface Mysteries
Season 2 premieres 7 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 3
The acclaimed light-hearted murder-mystery series returns, along with its eponymous Vespa-driving, crime-solving Catholic nun.
It’s the 1960s and Sister Boniface, with her aptitude for detective work, is an invaluable asset to the Great Slaughter Police Department. Her faith in forensics is only rivaled by her passion for investigation. If there’s evidence to be found, Boniface will find it. In this series, the sister forces a murderer into checkmate at a chess tournament, takes a spin at a pirate radio station, confronts a coven of witches and defends her own reputation as the conviction of her greatest adversary, “The Good Samaritan,” comes into question.
Final season premieres 8 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 8

But does the Doc truly never want to practice medicine again?
