Great show­case for Vic­to­ria

Herald Sun - Switched On - - On The Couch -

I have been pleas­antly sur­prised by the ABC se­ries The Dr Blake Mys­ter­ies, based in Bal­larat and filmed all around Vic­to­ria. It is a great in­sight into the 1950s in Vic­to­ria and a won­der­ful ve­hi­cle to show­case the tal­ents of Craig McLach­lan, Na­dine Gar­ner and the great John Wood among many oth­ers. The at­ten­tion to de­tails is amaz­ing; we are con­stantly say­ing ‘‘ I re­mem­ber those’’. The show prob­a­bly won’t get a look-in among the rat­ings, as it is not on the big chan­nels, but some­times that en­sures qual­ity not just quan­tity. Al­ready sold to the BBC, and a sec­ond se­ries is in pro­duc­tion. A great show­case for Aus­tralian tal­ent in front of and be­hind the cam­era.
