A plucky heroine and a gruff but lovable Scotsman? Yes please. #MissScarletandtheDuke – Coming soon to Lightbox


ETA (29 March 2020):

We now have a release date for New Zealand: the first episode will be available on 15 April 2020 according to the Lightbox website!


British fans of the murder mystery set in Victorian times can watch the series on Alibi TV next month while American fans will have to wait until September for the release on PBS (according to series creator Rachael New). We will update the List of International Distributors as soon as we find out more.

Miss Scarlet and The Duke follows the adventures of Miss Eliza Scarlet (Kate Phillips), the first-ever female detective in 19th century London who is forced to partner with Detective Inspector William “The Duke” Wellington (Stuart Martin) of Scotland Yard, a drinker, gambler and womaniser. Rupert Parker (Andrew Gower) is Eliza’s best friend and one of her few supporters.
