The Doctor Blake Mysteries



This is a new period drama that has recently started to air on the ABC. Set in Ballarat in the late fifties, Craig McLachlan plays Doctor Lucien Blake who has returned to his home to take over his late father’s practice. There are mysteries, murders and the like, and Dr Blake works with the police to find unlikely solutions.

I don’t mind it, although it does feel a bit like a poor man’s Phryne Fisher. I like it being an Australian period drama, and there is a great cast. Although having said that, I find that much of the cast, even including the wonderful Nadine Garner, fall into overacting. But, I think I’ll persevere. It’s just a bit of fun.
