With only two episodes of The Doctor Blake Mysteries left one must ponder if this new series will be commissioned for a second season. Not much has happened storyline wise in these past eight episodes but there have been many great crimes and many great killers caught by Lucien’s (Craig McLachlan) cleverness.
Guest starring Jacek Koman, best known for his role in Moulin Rouge as a narcoleptic leading man, this week Lucien (Craig Mclachlan) must find the killer and then let her go due to insufficient evidence. Jean (Nadine Garner) auditions for a play and after one meeting with a gentleman called Robert she is worried that he is going to ask for her hand in marriage!
Here’s the problem. Doctor Blakes Mysteries needs a good shake up. It’s as stale as Nice biscuit left out overnight. I want to love this show so much. Mclachlan is the best thing in it and on a weekly basis I find myself daydreaming about sexy Lucien and combing his beard as he wears way too many clothes for any woman’s liking.
