A British inspector is transferred to Saint-Marie's police department, but he hates the sun, sea, and sand. The series follow his investigations into murders on the island. Later series see another British DI head the investigative team.
With the help of DS John Bacchus, Inspector George Gently spends his days bringing to justice members of the criminal underworld who are unfortunate enough to have the intrepid investigator assigned to their cases.
Set in the 1960s, the show follows Endeavour Morse in his early years as a police constable. Working alongside his senior partner DI Fred Thursday, Morse engages in a number of investigations around Oxford.
This show was both set and filmed in the city of Ballarat, which was founded as a gold rush-era boomtown in the Central Highlands of Victoria, Australia. The filming locations were popular tourist attractions, and there was a "Doctor Blake Series" section on Ballarat's regional tourism marketing and development website. See more »
After seeing this show wondered why we don't have more types of TV like this made in Australia.
I so love the production on this new Aussie show, which is made in Ballarat and set in the early 50s.
A worthy partner of Miss Fisher Murder Mysteries, another fabulous, beautiful looking period piece.
I really really liked this show. I was worried thinking of my memories of Craig McLachlan singing Mona in the 80s with a mullet and all those terrible shows he was in like Neighbours etc but he does a great job as Dr Blake and I really love his house set up and rather eccentric personality!
Can't wait for the next episode.
