Just got thru binge-watching Seasons 1-3, and I absolutely LURVED it! :snoopy:

I hear seasons 4 and 5 will begin airing on Netflix in June - Can anyone confirm that? :Shrug:

Seen 'em all I think. I very much like the program.

Isn't there an ending special coming?

I'm on season 3 so I'm thrilled to here there will be more.

I've wondering, does anyone know the name of the instrumental title track? I've had no luck finding it and itunes is woefully lacking in showtunes anyhow. (I am sad there's no apparent market for it, there are so many show title tunes that I'd love to buy!)

I don't know what season I'm on. I watch it on PBS.

Yessss! Why didn't it show when I searched for it?! Many thanks, Helix!

No worries! I realised -- an embarrassingly long time after posting the link -- that it's to the Aussie iTunes store. But I remember that I turned up some alternative sources, so you should be able to get it locally.

I want to put Doctor Blake and Miss Fisher in the same universe.

As colleagues, not as lovers, right? - I couldn't bear to see him with anyone except Jean.

Not like that, they are in two different decades.

Are you not writers? Alternate-universe fanfic, people... it exists for just such an emergency as this.

I was thinking that Miss Fisher came first and then Blake came afterwards in the same universe.

They're separated in time by more than 30 years.

They're separated in time by more than 30 years.

Which would make it even more possible to be in the same universe.

Ehhh, I watched a couple of Miss Fisher episodes, but they didn't grab me the way Midsommer Murders and Dr. Blake did, so I'm not feeling any type of collaboration at all. :Shrug:

It doesn't have to be a collaboration, just have them in the same universe at different time periods.

OK, I just heard that the series is possibly returning, but without Dr. Blake - What the Heck???!!! :flag:

IIRC - and this is coming secondhand from my mother, a big fan of Blake - there is an Issue with the actor playing Doctor Blake that was holding up production, so the decision was made (with his consent, apparently) to go on without him. The character is not dead, and may return if things clear up. It's possible the season arc will be dealing with his disappearance (abduction?)...

(I believe there was some manner of harassment claim or other legal problem, but don't quote me on that.)

Oh, yes. There's quite a legal problem: https://www.buzzfeed.com/lanesainty/christie-whelan-browne-craig-mclachlan-defamation

I hope it gets cleared up soon.
