Filming has started in Victoria on a spin-off of The Doctor Blake Mysteries.

Four Doctor Blake telemovies were ordered by Channel Seven after the Ballarat-based show was cancelled by the ABC after five seasons.

'The Doctor Blake Mysteries: Ghost Stories' has Nadine Garner in the lead role, returning as Jean Blake who steps in to solve mysteries after her husband Lucien Blake vanishes.

December Media postponed filming in January after allegations of indecent assault and sexual harassment were made against lead actor Craig McLachlan (who played Dr Lucien Blake).

McLachlan is strongly denying the claims, and an investigation by the production company found no evidence of harassment, misconduct or bullying by him during the show's filming of season five.
