Fri­day THE DOC­TOR BLAKE MYS­TER­IES

Geelong Advertiser - TV Guide - - PROGRAMS -

ABC1, 8.30pm

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.
