‘The Doctor Blake Mysteries,’ Series One – An Australian Murder Mystery Series with Complex Characters and Puzzles

July 13, 2016 4 Comments

One of the things I probably spend way too much time searching out are new BBC-esque dramas. My latest find was picked up for distribution by BBC, but is actually an Australian series. Fortunately, I stumbled across this one and therefore didn’t have to invest time searching it out.

This latest find is The Doctor Blake Mysteries, a crime drama that our friends, the Aussie’s do up right.
