What’s on TV Monday: ‘Ms. Fisher’s Modern Murder Mysteries’ and ‘The Show Must Go On’

An Australian crime series gets a new spinoff on Acorn TV. And a documentary about Queen and Adam Lambert is on ABC.

MS. FISHER’S MODERN MURDER MYSTERIES Stream on Acorn TV. The Australian crime show “Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries” — about an elegant heiress-turned-detective in 1920s Melbourne named Phryne Fisher — got rave reviews in the land down under when it debuted in 2012, and gained a global following with distribution by Netflix, Acorn TV and PBS. This spinoff takes place in the ’60s and focuses on Phryne’s audacious niece, Peregrine (Geraldine Hakewill), who inherits Phryne’s fortune after she disappears and is presumed dead. And — shocker! — Peregrine becomes a sleuth, too, chasing murderers with the help of a hunky detective (Joel Jackson) and women from her aunt’s Adventuresses’ Club.
