If you are a fan of traditional murder mysteries such as the 80s film Clue or the more recent Knives Out you will enjoy Queens of Mystery.  Queens of Mystery is an entertaining piece of fluff that pays homage to old school murder mystery novels and television whilst adding its own unique charm. Every costume, every set piece seems meticulously chosen, adding to an overall whimsical feel. Incredible female characters who are similar enough to be believable as sisters but nuanced enough to be entertaining make an already entertaining premise work fantastically well. There are only 6 episodes so the show doesn't overstay its welcome. Don't expect anything too challenging - this definitely isn't Sherlock Holmes or Ellery Queen. It is, however, very well made and highly entertaining.
