Enjoyable period drama detective program, like all those British mysteries I like (Campion, Marple), except Blake is Australian. "Cozy", that's the word in looking for. He examines the murder victim for the police, does some dangerous sleuthing on the side, and meanwhile makes slow progress each episode on some personal development while everyone drives a funny old car.

Clever, unique episodes set in an interesting period in history. Fun seeing/hearing music played on turntable record player and cool vintage cars. Quite enjoyable cast and wonderfully different dynamic of those lodging/living within the Blake residence. Season two even better than Season one. Well written and acted. Enjoyable to watch a murder mystery series that is lower on the violence scale and, so-far, the crimes/images are much less grisly than most Scandavian and American crime series.

The story lines in series 2 are an improvement over series 1 - the characters more fully developed and interesting. Looking forward to series 3.

Not sanctimonious like season one. Pretty good.

Lucien Blake is gorgeous and an excellent actor. The plots are tightly woven and unexpectedly droll.

I really enjoy this Australian version of "Sherlock Holmes." The times were slower than today, the crimes no less vicious and life no less conflicted. Well written, beautiful cinematography, god acting, interesting characters and plots. The only complaint I have is that the writers have plopped a 21st Century feminist male into an ere when feminism was not yet a word. It is a bit jarring at times, but I also appreciate the effort the writers are making to be timely in addressing today's issues.

The murder plots of this series are out of the ordinary. Kudos to the script writers. Looking forward to Series 3.
