Amazon is about to have a huge presence in Australia. Because of this, our next campaign will be to contact Amazon Video to request that they Save Doctor Blake. This coming Wednesday, June 21st, is the day for us to all post, email, call, Tweet and make ourselves heard! Amazon picked up Ripper Street when it was cancelled by the BBC, so we are hoping they will help us.
We know that some of you are hesitant about Pay TV but please participate. We have to remember that our goal is to Save Doctor Blake. If Amazon picks up our show, they will produce DVDs that can be purchased or checked out from your library for free. That way everyone will have access to the show. It would be a winning solution for everyone. If another network doesn’t pick it up, there will be no more Doctor Blake.
Our chancres that a free-to-air channel will pick up Doctor Blake are slim ABC won’t reconsider, Channel 10 is in terrible financial trouble and we have contacted Channel 9 with no response from them. There is a rumor that Channel 7 might be picking it up but, until we get an official statement about it, we need to keep our momentum going! The more noise we make with our posts, emails and Tweets, the more chances we have that other networks will hear us.
Please mention that The Doctor Blake Mysteries has been the ABCs #1 show for four years, watched by 1.7 million every week, worldwide fans and that viewers of all ages (that is very important) love the show. Mention the huge fan base etc. Add other things from our previous email blitzes that you think are important. Please include the link to our website. Everything is on the website but you can also add the petition link, too.
Contact information is below. Please post on both Amazon Australia/ New Zealand and Amazon US Facebook pages, so that we cover all the bases. If you Tweet, please do that, too. Because Doctor Blake fans are located around the world, and there is a time difference, contact them as close to Wednesday as you can. We want to try to get our Facebook posts there on the same day to make them notice us.
Thanks everyone and let’s Save Doctor Blake!
