I am not the best at reviewing the plots & characters so I would just refer you to the many reviews available for the individual series which give you the good reasons for getting this.
This complete set also includes the Ghost Stories episodes that, at the time of writing, I don't think have been aired in the UK. These 2 episodes contain some of the core characters - led by Jean but not Doctor Blake himself - you may need to look on the net for further details.
Like many TV series, although broadcast in HD, does not seem to be released on Blu-Ray - which I would prefer - but I can report the image quality on the transfer is very good. (possibly as good as we can get for DVD)
Sound wise Series 1, 2 & 4 only have a Stereo sound track but I am pleased to say that from Series 3, 5 & Ghost stories also get a 5.1 Surround Sound track (which is the default) as well as the ordinary Stereo track. Only Stereo is mentioned on the packaging. It is a shame & a disappointment that S1,2 & 4 did not also have the 5.1 surround track - I certainly don't understand why S4 does not when S3 does! (hence 4 rather than 5 stars)
For those that need it they all come with subtitles for the HOH.
One minor comment to end with - due to the number of DVDs in the set most dvds are doubled up on the internal holders which can make it slightly awkward but is probably the only way to get so many dvds into limited space.
I saw a couple of these on TV years ago and quickly got into it when I finally opened the box set.
Dr Blake gained a lot of experience in his travels before settling at his home town. He is the local Dr and Police surgeon, and is not bothered about ruffling feathers to make things right.
The series shows his exploits as he settles into life in his home town, making friends and enemies on the way.
The majority are single episodes, lasting less than an hour. The last 2 discs however are for 2, 2 part specials.
If you like mysteries, this is definitely something to try.
