The Mystery Of A Hansom Cab (ABC-1 2012, John Waters, Shane Jacobson)

Period crime drama Mystery of a Hansom Cab takes us to Melbourne in 1886 and follows the investigation into the murder of a young man who was riding in a hansom cab with a friend, Brian Fitzgerald, who of course becomes prime suspect. When he refuses to provide an alibi, the girl he loves, Madge and his lawyer Duncan Calton, decide to discover what really happened.

Full of fabulous period flavour and with a top notch cast. Watch out for Chelsie Preston Crayford and Anna McGahan, last seen together in that other period crime piece Underbelly Razor.
