About the Series
In an era of corsets, bonnets, and rigid patriarchy, Eliza Scarlet is England’s pioneer female private detective, and a credit to her sex since she is arguably the nation’s finest sleuth. For his part, Duke is a natural-born crime-buster, destined for high office at Scotland Yard. Along with the help (or hinderance) of Duke, Eliza is aided by her underworld odd-job man, Moses (Ansu Kabia, World on Fire); her sage housekeeper, Ivy (Cathy Belton, Hidden Assets); and her young friend and protégé, Hattie (Jessie Cave, Harry Potter).
The new season opens a few months after the conclusion of Season One: Eliza has solved her father’s murder, her relationship with William (the “Duke”) continues to slowly simmer, and she continues to face the challenges of being a female private detective in male-dominated Victorian London.
