All ten episodes from the second series of the Australian drama about a doctor returning home to take over his late father's medical practice. Doctor Lucien Blake (Craig McLachlan) fled his hometown of Ballarat in his 20s to travel and study medicine in Scotland but after receiving news of his father's death he returned following a 33-year absence. Back in Ballarat, he finds himself not just taking on his father's medical practice but also a new role as the town's police surgeon. In this series Doctor Blake returns from China and is quickly involved in another murder mystery, this time involving the local council. Later, he must solve a murder in the nearby cinema and the death of a priest in his church's confessional. The episodes are: 'The Heart of the Matter', 'The Food of Love', 'A Foreign Field', 'Smoke and Mirrors', 'Crossing the Line', 'Mortal Coil', 'The Silence', 'The Ties of the Past', 'The Sky is Empty' and 'An Invincible Summer'.

Each of the stories are logically put together with no 'hidden' suddenly uncovered 'clues' that the viewer (or the players) could never have foreseen. Craig McLachlan has done even better with the character this series and, with the new police officer, there's been a slight change in relationships but always to the show's advantage. If I were to make a critisism, it would be one that's common among all series of this type and that is that the main character, who is nothing to do with the police other than as their doctor of choice, gets involved in all aspects of police
business from detecting to questioning, which makes me wonder, does he have no patients in Balerat?
**** WARNING : SPOILER ******
I thought the final scenes of the final episode, with a possible love interest between the Doc and Nadine Garner as Jean Beazley, the housekeeper, was well done and a real cliff-hanger for the future - will they, won't they???
Ignoring critisisms, I love the series and look forward to series 3
5 stars and recommended
I have also enjoyed the Australian accents, the attention to historical detail and the excellent dialogue.
May there be more of these series. I hope to aquire all of them
The DVD's are subtitled for each episode and the quality is very good. I will continue to purchase them from Amazon.co.uk as they are released. The Doctor Blake series is shown in my area on PBS, but they are always one series behind. I simply can't wait a year to see what happens next
Brilliant acting from all the cast and Craig McLachlan is on top form as ever. I thought some of the storylines were better than others but in all a very entertaining drama to watch. Definitely worth buying the DVD. Can't wait for series 3
