Aljin Abella & Nicholas Bell on "The Doctor Blake Mysteries" (2013)

Taking place in the 1950s, the Australian drama "The Doctor Blake Mysteries," follows police surgeon Dr. Lucien Blake, as he gets drawn into the cases baffling the police department, using his skills of deduction to find the culprits. The eighth episode "Game of Champions," finds Dr. Blake helping to investigate the murder of a contestant on a popular television quiz show. Aljin Abella (Theo, Jungle Fury) plays a major role in the episode, as Simon Lo, the show's very unpopular champion. On the night of the murder, the audience is shocked when Simon gets a question wrong, losing his status as champion to the more popular, good-looking James Holbrook. Simon appears just as shocked as the audience. Backstage, he confronts the show's married hosts, Alan & Verity Coleman, claiming the show was rigged so that he would lose. Later, James Holbrook is found dead. Simon becomes the top suspect, but when he reveals to a sympathetic Dr. Blake that he's been the subject of bullying by Alan Coleman and James Holbrook since their days in school together, Dr. Blake pays a visit to their teacher, Professor Robert Waterman, played by Nicholas Bell (Zordon, MMPR: The Movie). Waterman reveals that Simon was a problem student. He shows Blake a file of Simon's work, including essays where he tore apart the professor, claiming verbal abuse and harrassment. Waterman tells Blake that he shamed Simon, so that other students would have a chance to excel, something Simon's smart, yet arrogant attitude prevented. Dr. Blake then discovers that Waterman is one of the contributors to the show that provides the questions, including the one that played on Simon's past of bullying, causing him to lose focus and answer incorrectly. Given the rules of the quiz show, Simon is invited to return as champion, with Waterman as his opponent. After helping Blake gather more possible motives, Simon decides to go back, to defeat his professor. While on the live show, however, Simon gets electrocuted and dies, helping Dr. Blake realize he was the intended target all along, but James was killed instead by accident.
