We were looking forward to The Doctor Blake Mysteries Season 6, but were absolutely shocked to learn two things—that the next “season” will actually be four television movies—and that Craig McLachlan, who plays the title character Dr. Lucien Blake, won’t be starring in any of them!
Earlier this year, McLachlan was accused by several colleagues of sexual misconduct on the set of The Doctor Blake Mysteries. While McLachlan denies these allegations and was cleared of all charges against him, the show’s network ABC still decided to cancel the popular show. The show found a new home on the Seven Network, but it seems as though the scandal surrounding McLachlan’s behavior was too much to keep him for future seasons.
The Doctor Blake Mysteries without Dr. Blake? We’ll have to wait and see!
