The Doctor Blake Mysteries returns to television screens tonight

BALLARAT’S own mystery drama The Doctor Blake Mysteries returns to the small screen tonight.

The series, set in the late 1950s, follows doctor Lucien Blake, played by actor Craig McLachlan. 

Filmed in Ballarat, the show used a Webster Street house in November, where they filmed internal and external shots for the series. 

Filming has also taken place at Lake Wendouree on Wendouree Parade, the Art Gallery of Ballarat and The Old Colonists Club, and at the Botanical Gardens. 

Earlier in the year, the crew went to the Ballarat Airport, Reid’s Guesthouse and the Ballarat Railway Station. 

The show returns for the second series at 8.30pm today  on the ABC.
