What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

Dr. Blake returns to Australia after World War II. He takes over his deceased father's medical practice and becomes the Ballarat area police surgeon. While serving in the British Army as a medical officer he falls in love with and marries a Chinese woman and they have a daughter.

When Singapore falls, he looses them both. He finds his daughter, but her life has been rough as a mixed race child and she wants nothing to do with him. Later his wife turns up in Australia, but all is not as it seems. She's being used by others, but to what end? And where has she been and what has she suffered at the hands of others?

Ah, yes, I love this series and can't want for season 5! And season 5 will be the last. There will be a finale movie to tie up all the loose ends. Going out as Australia's number 1 drama. Will miss it, but glad it's getting a proper send off!
