Dr. Blake, a keeper of secrets, a solver of mysteries
10 x 60 minutes
The Dr Blake Mysteries is an original, period murder mystery series, starring one of Australia’s favourite, most versatile actors Craig McLachlan as the maverick town doctor Lucien Blake – a risk-taker, he’s impulsive and not afraid to upset the status quo.
Dr Lucien Blake left Ballarat as a young man. But now he finds himself returning to take over his dead father’s medical practice. And one of the unwanted duties his father left him is the on-call role of police surgeon.
Set in the gothic gold rush town of Ballarat in 1959. The wealth that built its grand architecture is long gone – but not the mysteries, murder and deceit that linger beneath the surface of its faded glory.
Starring Craig McLachlan as Dr Lucien Blake and Nadine Garner as his housekeeper/receptionist Jean joined by Joel Tobeck (Sons of Anarchy, Tangle), Cate Wolfe (Australia on Trial) and Rick Donald (Blood Brothers, Underbelly).
‘The Dr Blake Mysteries’ premiered Friday 1 February 2013 8.30PM on ABC1.
Season 1 is now available to buy on DVD via the ABC Shop.
