Miss Scarlet And The Duke
Miss Scarlet and The Duke is a British-Irish period crime drama series written for television and created by the talented Rachael New. Set in Victorian London, Eliza Scarlet has nothing left when her father dies. In a time where marriage was the only option for financial security for a woman, this is an especially complex problem, so Eliza decides to continue her father's detective agency. In order to do so in a male-dominated industry though, she needs to work with a male partner. Enter gruff womaniser Detective Inspector William Wellington, known as the Duke. The role of Eliza Scarlet is brilliantly portrayed by British actress Kate Phillips (Wolf Hall, Peaky Blinders), while the excellent Scottish actor Stuart Martin (Medici: Masters of Florence, Babylon) plays the role of Detective Inspector William Wellington.
