More detail has emerged on The Blake Mysteries which sees Jean (Nadine Garner) turn mystery-solver …but fans who were pivotal in the show’s future are not happy.
The Blake Mysteries: A New Beginning, understood to be the first of 4 telemovies, begins shooting in Victoria on May 28 for the Seven network.
A synopsis indicates:
It’s been almost three years since we last saw Jean and a hell of a lot has happened in that time. Jean and Blake were married for only 18 months when Blake went missing. Since then Jean has taken on her husband’s mantle as, a solver of mysteries. Murder, mayhem and Jean Blake are a potent mix and anything can and will happen.
In ABC’s finale Nadine Garner’s housekeeper married Lucien Blake (Craig McLachlan) but in the months that followed its screening McLachlan has been at the centre of allegations he is currently fighting in court.
The December Media production appeared to be derailed but producers found a path to forge ahead around the newly-married Mrs. Blake, as a way of contractually retaining key cast & creatives.
But is this a one-off to buy more time whilst McLachlan addresses legal matters, or a sign of more?
The very vocal Blake Army, whose campaign was pivotal in the show being rescued after the ABC axing, are torn by the “New Beginning” to keep the show alive and are speaking out on social media.
No charges have been laid against McLachlan.
NB: Please note no comments will be published in relation to allegations.
