It’s easy to see why this charming local series has won over a legion of fans. The high quality home-grown drama is brimming with a talented cast, a fun ’70s wardrobe and tearjerker stories paired with heartwarming situations. Then there are the babies – who can resist? The drama gets about as high stakes as is possible tonight as Jim (Matthew Le Nevez) decides he’s not going back behind bars and does a runner. Worse still, he’s taken the baby with him, leaving a devastated Joan (Jessica Marais, right) behind. Meanwhile, Viv (Sophie Hensser) has her own heartbreaking separation when she has to leave her nephew behind in Vietnam.
