I am really taken aback. I have just realised that the writers of Dr Blake have plagiarised ideas from another programme.
In Dr Blake, he got very close to Mrs Beazley but at the moment of proposing to him, the door knocker went and it was his Chinese wife, who was thought to be dead.
I am just watching an episode of Soldier, Soldier, made decades ago, called “Divided Loyalties” and in this episode, after one of the lieutenants got married in the previous episode, the wife’s original husband, who was also thought to be dead, turned up.
My goodness; doesn’t anyone have any shame anymore
But if the writers can set up Craig Mclaughlan for a fall, I am sure that they would not blink an eye by stealing ideas from another programme.
