KEPT WAIT­ING

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Front Page -

LIKE many other Aus­tralians, Michala Banas is wait­ing for Chan­nel 9 to play the fi­nal se­ries of McLeod’s Daugh­ters. Nine an­nounced last Novem­ber that the eighth se­ries of the show, which has aired since 2001, would be the last.

McLeod’s re­turned in late July but lasted only three weeks in its new times­lot— Wed­nes­days at 8.30pm— and was re­placed by Cold Case. Nine is plan­ning to play the re­main­ing episodes over sum­mer.

‘‘I think it’s a real shame that they haven’t let it run its course so the fans can see the beau­ti­ful epic fi­nal,’’ Banas says. ‘‘I have peo­ple com­ing up to me in the street say­ing, ‘What’s hap­pened to it? Why can’t we see the last episodes?’

‘‘ McLeod’s is such an iconic Aus­tralian show and it has done so well around the world. I’m sure Nine has its rea­sons for tak­ing it off.’’
