Friday THE DOCTOR BLAKE MYSTERIES
Craig McLachlan and his speckled- grey beard return tonight with series two of this winsome and moody 1960s drama set in the Victorian town of Ballarat. Tonight, the World War II veteran returns from China with an underlying sadness – his reunion with his daughter wasn’t what he hoped for. Yet, his inner woes and complicated relationships with housekeeper Jean ( Nadine Garner) and nurse Mattie ( Cate Wolfe) are quickly put on the backburner when he is thrown straight into a murder investigation involving the town’s newly- elected mayor. This smart series has proved a hit and now has the honour of being the first Aussie show to be picked up by BBC One.
