Ma­tron

TV Soap - - Prime Time -

Ma­tron is a woman on a mis­sion. Fu­ri­ous that Stan­ton House has been closed leav­ing young un­wed moth­ers nowhere to go, Ma­tron is de­ter­mined to get it re­opened. Her rst step is to get a spot on the hospi­tal board but when McNaughton dis­misses her in­ten­tions be­cause she’s “just a nurse”, Ma­tron is forced to step things up.

Af­ter ex­plain­ing the plight of aban­doned ba­bies to a group tour­ing the hospi­tal, Ma­tron (Mandy McEl­hin­ney) man­ages to move one of the women so much that she re­turns to ex­press in­ter­est in adopt­ing a baby. Ma­tron of­fers to sort out an adop­tion for her if the woman’s hus­band rec­om­mends Ma­tron for a spot on the board.

Later McNaughton is sur­prised to see Ma­tron sit­ting in the board­room ready for her rst meet­ing. Un­for­tu­nately Ma­tron hits an­other hur­dle when her mo­tion to have Stan­ton House re­opened is de­feated.

It be­comes ever more ur­gent and im­por­tant for Stan­ton House to be saved af­ter Joan checks on Mag­gie (Tiarnie Cou­p­land), a girl who had run away to Kings Cross to look for her birth mother, at Tar­ra­mar Girls Home. When Joan dis­cov­ers the girls are be­ing sex­u­ally abused she turns to Ma­tron for help, lead­ing to a deal be­tween the un­likely al­lies.

Ma­tron tells Joan that the girls will only have some­where safe to go if Stan­ton House is re­opened. So Joan pre­pares to charm the unco-op­er­a­tive hospi­tal chair­man at his re­tire­ment party to per­suade him to green-light the ven­ture. Will Joan’s per­for­mance be enough to get Stan­ton House up and run­ning again? TVS JUN 13-JUN 27, 2016
