Storyline

It's 1959 and Dr. Lucien Blake has recently returned to his hometown of Ballarat and taken over his deceased father's medical practice. He's also the local police surgeon. Blake is scarred by his experiences as a prisoner of war in Japanese-occupied Singapore during World War II and as a result engages in self-destructive behavior. After the police find 17 year-old Ann Fitzgerald floating in Lake Wendouree, Blake determines she was killed after being struck by a car. He also finds that she was pregnant. Ann was a resident at the Ballarat Reform School for Girls and Blake suspects the handsome teacher Phillip Morrisey may have been the father. Phillip may have also been manufacturing amphetamines for some of the locals. Chief Supt. Lawson charges Morrisey with murder but Blake believes the culprit to be someone else. Written by garykmcd
