The Doctor Blake Mysteries (2013)
Thereís a new TV series here in Australia called The Doctor Blake Mysteries (itís also going to be shown on UK television). Itís about a police surgeon in the regional city of Ballarat in the late 1950s who solves various police cases.
I do have some positive things to say about the series, but it has to be said that this is a show with a liberal message. You get a sense, in fact, of how the makers of the show imagine a liberal hero: he is a figure people respect and look up to, but he is outside of the establishment, and he has to battle the corruption within the conservative institutions of the city, such as the police, the army and the church.
