Doctor Blake axing is ‘disrespectful to an audience so loyal’

Craig McLachlan has again taken aim at ABC’s decision to end The Doctor Blake Mysteries.

Telling News Corp he has colleagues on commercial shows that would kill for half of Blake’s audience, he added, “I will just say this, people vote with their remote.

“Take away the people’s show, when you are supposed to be the people’s network?

“I find it very, very disappointing. I find it exceedingly disrespectful to an audience that has been so extraordinarily loyal.”

The 5th season is said to be delayed to late 2017 following a decision to wrap up with a telemovie, tipped to shoot in the second half of the year.

A petition to stop the show’s axing has over 10,000 signatures.
