A new exhibition opens today, in Ballarat about the ABC and BBC TV series “The Doctor Blake Mysteries”
Designed by Carrie Kennedy, the showâ€™s production designer, it includes vintage costuming worn in the show and sets and is set against a backdrop of Ballaratâ€™s most visited locations.
There are two parts; â€˜Cast and Crewâ€™, providing a sneak peek behind the camera of everyone involved in bringing the series to life; and â€˜On Locationâ€™, looking at the Ballarat locations involved in the show.
– A recreated loungeroom from the Doctor Blake series, including Doctor Blakeâ€™s highly recognised lounge suite.
– A dressing table used by one of the characters in an episode
– Doctor Blakeâ€™s desk, where visitors can sit behind the desk for a photo
– Doctor Blakeâ€™s â€˜Blakemobileâ€™ – a 1937 Coventry Standard automobile, that will welcome visitors at the Gold Museum entrance
What: Doctor Blakeâ€™s Ballarat exhibition
Where: The Gold Museum, Bradshaw Street, Ballarat
When: April 11th 2017 to September 3rd 2017

There’s also an accompanying program of events – you can see them here. I’ll be hosting a panel discussion with Louise McCarthy (costume designer), and John Logue (hair and makeup designer) as they talk about creating the vintage look for the show, on May 27th.
Can’t wait! I love Ballarat and Circa has supplied a lot of costumes for this show too.
