Doctor Blake Mysteries, The - Season 1-5
Doctor Blake is ready to solve a series of strange and shocking crimes. But he's about to discover that each and every one of his actions has consequences. And no good deed ever goes unpunished...
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 old gothic gold rush town of Ballarat in 1959. The wealth that built its grand architecture long gone-but not the mysteries, murder and deceit that linger beneath the surface of its faded glory.
Doctor Blake returns to Ballarat after a failed bid to reunite with his long lost daughter. But this is no longer the safe haven he left behind: Danny has been transferred to a police station in Melbourne, replaced by a new Senior Constable who seems hell bent on making Blake's job as police surgeon as difficult as possible.
Blake's 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, the mysteries around every corner--in the church, politics, art, rock 'n' roll. Nothing is sacred--no one is safe.
Doctor Lucien Blake is back, but Ballarat is no longer the safe haven he has come to call home. A new Chief Superintendent is on the way, a man who will not be won over by the Doctor's strange but effective methods as Police Surgeon. There is a lingering awkwardness with Jean, his assistant and housekeeper and a new mystery that goes back almost 40 years, a cold case that will cut to the very heart of Blake. There will be murder and intrigue, police politics and espionage. Rowing on Lake Wendouree, echoes of the Eureka Rebellion, the Stolen Generation and the mysteries of the Masonic lodge.
Mysteries that, as always, only Doctor Blake can solve.
Doctor Lucien Blake and his housekeeper and confidant Jean Beazley (Nadine Garner) have returned to Ballarat, ready to finally pursue their romantic feelings towards one another. But their arrival coincides with the attack on someone extremely close to them, creating a life-threatening situation that will shake them both to their very core. And just as they're trying to recover from this, Blake is shocked by the sudden appearance on his doorstep of a mysterious figure from a life he can barely remember.
Doctor Lucien Blake and his long-suffering housekeeper and confidant Jean Beazley now face a new future together, full of possibility, but life has a few more surprises in store for the both of them. Once again they'll be confronted by murder and mystery at every turn. From the boxing ring to a new French bistro, from an exotic camp of travelling Romani gypsies to the local Debutante Ball. Doctor Blake is ready to solve a series of strange and shocking crimes. But he's about to discover that each and every one of his actions has consequences. And no good deed ever goes unpunished.
