August 1, 2013 – Filming of the second season of The Doctor Blake Mysteries has commenced last Monday. Production will take place in Melbourne and Ballarat during the next 6 months and the audience will
see the maverick country town Doctor Lucien Blake (Craig McLachlan) return to their TV screens in early 2014.
In a statement announcing the second series, McLachlan said: “I can’t
even begin to express how thrilled I am to be traveling back to late 50’s Ballarat for another round of The Doctor Blake Mysteries. My heartfelt thanks to everyone for tuning in.”
December Media’s head of drama and series creator, George Adams, said: “The audience response to the show has been overwhelming and we are delighted ABC TV want more. Tony Wright and I are beyond pleased the show has found such a loyal following so quickly. The show has been blessed with wonderful stories, a great cast, a tremendous crew and memorable locations. All of these elements plus Craig McLachlan’s finely-tuned performance as Doctor Lucien Blake have helped create a classic murder mystery series for a Friday evening on the ABC.”
