Doctor needs treatment
I AMunashamedly a nostalgia devotee, particularly with respect to Australian television productions. However, in the case of the Dr Blake Mysteries no amount of local nostalgia is sufficient to mask the significant blemishes in the series. For a start, the plot is totally unbelievable. AnMDdisapproved of but employed by police authorities virtually singlehandedly conducting all investigations while the gendarmerie sits around idly. Both the writing and the acting leave much to be desired. We can be proud of a significant number of local productions. Rake and East-West are recent examples of this. Unfortunately, the Dr Blake Mysteries is not.
