Doctor Blake Mysteries TV Series Information
OVATION TV TO AIR SEASONS THREE AND FOUR OF "THE DOCTOR BLAKE MYSTERIES" STARTING ON AUGUST 11
Los Angeles, CA - August 3, 2022 - Ovation TV, America's premier arts network, will begin airing the third and fourth seasons of The Doctor Blake Mysteries later this month. The original, period murder mystery series stars Craig McLachlan as the maverick town doctor Lucien Blake, an impulsive risk-taker who's not afraid to upset the status quo.

With four episodes airing back-to-back every Thursday, season four will then begin airing on Thursday, August 25 at 8am ET.
Dr. Blake has returned to this place he once called home to take over his dead father's medical practice. The dry, yet very human Dr. Blake undertakes his other role as Police Surgeon with precision and gusto - yet many find his unpredictable and unconventional manner unnerving. Ahead of his time, Blake looks to the science of forensics and his own understanding of the human heart and mind to help solve the mysteries that inevitably come his way. Beside Blake, helping and at times hindering, are his housekeeper Jean (Nadine Garner); her nephew Danny (Rick Donald), a young Constable; District Nurse Mattie O'Brien (Cate Wolfe); and Chief Superintendent Matthew Lawson (Joel Tobeck).
