There is speculation Seven will pick up The Doctor Blake Mysteries.
TV Tonight hears whispers the show may be picked up for two seasons of 13 episodes. On a commercial network the show would feasibly run for around 42 minutes, down from its current running time of around 55 minutes, a significant cost saving.
Seven picking up the show would be a win for fans who mounted a campaign to rescue the show, and contrast that of A Place to Call Home, axed because it was too expensive and skewed old.
With ABC still home to the show there is probably little chance of any confirmation at its “AllFronts” event this Friday. Otherwise expect news after the season finale on November 12….
December Media declined to comment.
