Trivia

In March 2017, the Australian Broadcasting Corporation announced that they were canceling The Doctor Blake Mysteries and the fifth season would be its last. This was despite the fact that it was consistently their highest-rated Australian-made program. Star Craig McLachlan (Dr Lucien Blake) said in an interview with Australian reporters Prue Bentley and Tony Allan that the network never told him the reasoning behind their decision: "The biggest disappointment was trying to find the logic in it. I'm not blowing smoke up the show's derriere when I say that when the numbers are crunched, it is the most popular global drama on Australian television. The decision didn't make sense. When you're on a good thing, stick to it. The current regime at the ABC, they had their reasons [but] I don't understand them and it's never been articulated to me what their thinking is."

Classic gentle nostalgic who done it, consistently good quality great actors.
7 January 2016 | by See all my reviews

I first came across this series a couple years ago and since then have looked forward to each new series and have not been disappointed every episode has hit the mark.

Craig McLachlan breaks away from his likely lad image and makes a brilliant job playing the maverick police surgeon Dr Lucien Blake. The wonderful Nadine Garner plays his housekeeper Jean Bezley to perfection. Equally brilliant is Joel Tobeck as the police inspector and former school mate of Dr Blake.

The inter play between Dr Blake and his housekeeper is major source of amusement running through the series. Both characters have back stories that put obstacles in the path of a romantic outcome. Joel Tobeck's police inspector has the tricky job of managing Dr Blake he admires Blake's brilliance but has to reign in Blake when breaks procedure and takes the investigation of at a tangent.

Watch and enjoy every episode is a gem.
