Development is underway between the ABC and December Media on a telemovie, that will be the final installment of The Doctor Blake Mysteries.
Since its debut in 2012, The Doctor Blake Mysteries starring Craig McLachlan and Nadine Garner, has been the top rating Australian Drama series on ABC TV. Fans are eagerly awaiting Series 5, which will launch later in the year on ABC and ABC iview and which will conclude with a movie-length finale.
ABC Head of Scripted Production Sally Riley says, “Dr Blake has had a sensational run on the ABC and we feel that the time is right to go out while we are still on top. We have a fantastic final season still to come and we look forward to wrapping the series up with a satisfying movie-length finale, as we bid farewell to an Australian TV icon.”
Series Co-creator and show-runner George Adams says “Having been the ABC’s number one returning Australian drama year on year we felt that we wanted to go out on a high and to give our loyal audience around Australia and the World, through the telemovie, answers to many of the remaining mysteries between Blake and Jean.”
The Doctor Blake Mysteries final telemovie will air later in the year following Series 5.
