Blake probes wedding murder
The Doctor Blake Mysteries telemovie: Family Portrait, ABC, Sunday at 8.30pm
IT’S 1961, and wedding bells are in the air ... but not for Blake and Jean. Not yet anyway.
A few weeks ahead of their own nuptials they’ve been invited to what promises to be Ballarat’s society wedding of the season.
The night quickly turns ugly, and Blake and Jean make a hasty retreat, glad to have put all that nastiness behind them.
But the next morning a prominent member of the bridal party is found dead at the reception venue.
Blake, of course, is still forbidden from working the case, as he’s no longer the police surgeon.
Instead, he’s tasked by an estranged relative to investigate a seemingly innocuous missing persons case in Melbourne.
