Neigh­bours back to life

They come, they go – even a dead char­ac­ter will re­turn to the street

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - PLAY / FREE TV -

EIGHBOURS is re­turn­ing to tele­vi­sion af­ter its sum­mer break. A host of old favourites are set to visit Ram­say Street in the New Year.

Vis­i­tors who drop in in­clude Ni­cola Charles’s Sarah Beau­mont, Carla Bon­ner’s Steph Scully and Scott McGre­gor’s de­tec­tive Mark Bren­nan, the lat­ter pre­sent­ing a real chal­lenge for the show’s writ­ers since his char­ac­ter is thought to have died in ac­tion. Former Make Me a Su­per­model win­ner Rhys Uh­lich also joins the cast as a young farmer who fol­lows his high school sweet­heart Ge­or­gia Brookes (Saskia Ham­pele) to Erins­bor­ough.

A new fam­ily – the Turn­ers – also moves into Ram­say Street.

Stingers favourite Kate Ken­dall plays Lau­ren Turner, daugh­ter of Lou Car­pen­ter (Tom Oliver), re­turn­ing to her child­hood home ac­com­pa­nied by her hus­band, Erins­bor­ough’s newly ap­pointed po­lice sergeant Matt Turner (Josef Brown) and their teenage chil­dren Ma­son (Tay­lor Glock­ner), Am­ber (Jenna Rosenow) and Bai­ley (Calen MacKen­zie). Mak­ing their ex­its are Natasha Wil­liams (Valentina No­vakovic), An­drew Robin­son (Jor­dan Smith), So­phie Ram­say (Kaiya Jones) and Dr Rhys Law­son (Ben Bar­ber).

‘‘All the characters de­part­ing will leave a legacy on Ram­say Street which is tes­ta­ment to the ex­tra­or­di­nary tal­ents of the ac­tors play­ing them,’’ ex­ec­u­tive pro­ducer Richard Jasek says

‘‘Com­mu­ni­ties are con­stantly chang­ing and Neigh­bours is re­flec­tive of this.’’

Week­days from Mon­day, 6.30pm, Eleven.

Der­ren Brown: Apoc­a­lypse. Com­bin­ing his cus­tom­ary in­ven­tive, in­tel­li­gent mix of thought-pro­vok­ing, com­pelling en­ter­tain­ment, stunts and sug­ges­tion with ex­tra­or­di­nary psy­cho­log­i­cal tricks and ex­per­i­ments, Brown un­leashes his most au­da­cious plan yet – to con­vince one per­son that the planet has been dev­as­tated by a cat­a­strophic me­te­orite strike, that lethal in­fected zom­bies now roam the land and that he is one of a mere hand­ful of sur­vivors. Brown’s cho­sen sur­vivor is some­one who takes life for granted, and has yet to truly value what he has. The ad­ven­ture that awaits him is metic­u­lously crafted to give him the ul­ti­mate wake-up call and teach him valu­able life­lessons.

Mon­day, 8.35pm, SBS1.

Rhys Uh­lich; in­set Ni­cola Charles and Scott McGre­gor.
