January 17, 2014 – Heʼs tenacious and charming
with a knack for solving crimes and he is back on Friday nights from February 7 at 8.30pm.

After the phenomenal success of series one, series two of The Doctor Blake Mysteries starring Craig McLachlan has been fast tracked. Filming of the second season only finished December 2013.

Producer George Adams says, “We are delighted
that the ABC is running Season Two of The Doctor Blake Mysteries less than a year out from Season One. These days audiences of hit shows expect a
fast seasonal turnaround. The stories, the acting and our guest cast this season are even stronger than
last time and we canʼt wait for everyone to see it.”

This season in The Doctor Blake Mysteries, Doctor Lucien Blake returns to Ballarat after an attempt to reunite with his long lost daughter. But itʼs no longer the safe haven he left behind: Danny has been transferred to Melbourne, replaced by a new Senior Constable who seems hell bent on making Blakeʼs job as police surgeon as difficult as possible. Blakeʼs old nemesis Patrick Tyneman has called in the help of some powerful men to keep an eye on Blake. And of course there are the strange and baffling murders that come his way, there are mysteries seeping out of every corner – from political corridors and church vestries, to, art galleries and rockʼnʼroll halls. Nothing is sacred? And no one is safe?

Leading the cast is Craig McLachlan as the intriguing Dr Lucien Blake. Nadine Garner plays his reliable confidante Jean Beazley, Cate Wolfe is the headstrong nurse Mattie OʼBrien, Joel Tobeck the tenacious Chief Superintendent Matthew Lawson and a newcomer Charlie Cousins plays the inscrutable Senior Constable Charlie Davis.

The Doctor Blake Mysteries is a December Media Production in association with ABC TV, Screen Australia and Film Victoria. Producer George Adams and Executive Producer Tony Wright. ABC Executive Producers Christopher Gist and Carole Sklan.
