COLIN VICKERY OUT OF THE BOX
THE DOCTOR BLAKE MYSTERIES, ABC1, 8.30pm
TV quiz shows haven’t changed much over the decades if tonight’s episode of The Doctor Blake Mysteries is anything to go by. All of Ballarat is captivated by Game of Champions. Add a few bells and whistles and it could be Deal or No Deal or Hot Seat. Contestant James Holbrook dies from what appears to be a heart attack after winning the jackpot. Police surgeon Lucien Blake (Craig McLachlan) discovers something far more sinister. Suspicion falls on a past quiz champion upset by Holbrook’s windfall. To reveal any more would spoil what has become perfect Friday night viewing.
