Goofs

In "Cocaine Blues", Miss Fisher shows Murdoch Foyle one of Janey's hair ribbons. It is a remnant of satin cording, but in this episode, the ribbon Miss Fisher receives in the anonymous envelope that supposedly matches the one she possesses is much different, a long, flat, velvet ribbon. These same flat, velvet ribbons are shown in Phryne's hair, in Frayne's memories of her sister. See more »
