Season 3 also sees a developed relationship between Phryne and Jack that there is nothing standing in their way. This is until her father arrives from England (much to the annoyance of his sister-in-law Prudence played by Miriam Margolyes) and his wayward mess comes between her and Jack, threatening to push them to opposite ends of the earth. Series 3 is Phryne and Jack’s biggest test yet – just how far are they prepared to go to be together?
This season too Dot Williams (Ashleigh Cummings) is getting ever more involved in Phryne’s investigations, working alongside her as Watson does with Sherlock Holmes. Dot accepted Hugh’s proposal of marriage in Series 2 but on the condition of a ‘long engagement’ while they figure out how to solve a few issues – like the Catholic/Protestant divide and Dot’s desire to keep working.
