Miss Scarlet and the Duke

Post by princess garnet » Thu August 26th, 2021, 6:35 pm

Meet "Miss Scarlet and the Duke" for crime solving in 19th century in London.
After her father's sudden death, Eliza Scarlet takes over his detective agency. William Wellington aka the Duke was Henry Scarlet's employee before joining the Scotland Yard. The show was a hit on both sides of the pond and production has started for season 2!
Here's an interview with series creator Rachel New about what's next for the pair:
