Tyler gets a shock when Hamish shows up on the family’s doorstep.
Tyler meets his biological dad Hamish who seems to have a secret agenda, on Neighbours.
It’s been an emotional rollercoaster for the Brennan brothers after the death of their father Russell. But Tyler has struggled the most with the revelation that Russell was not in fact his biological father and now his real dad has come to town.
However, things just don’t completely add up about Hamish (Sean Taylor) who seems to be playing at something. Tyler (Travis Burns) and his brothers are none the wiser though and there’s an instant rapport between Tyler and Hamish when they meet over a game of pool.
Unaware that the man he was playing with was actually his father, Tyler gets a shock when Hamish shows up on the Brennans’ doorstep and reveals who he is. Tyler is reluctant to get more involved with Hamish because his emotions over the whole situation are so painful but his brothers give him a push.
Tyler decides to try hanging out with Hamish again and they get along like a house on re. Hamish tells the boys he never met Russell (the late Russell Kiefel) but later during another chat with Tyler reveals the opposite and quickly covers his tracks.
The slip-up isn’t noticed by Tyler but increasingly there’s a sense that all is not quite what it seems. And that is the case when Tyler shows Hamish the

boat he and Aaron (Matt Wilson) inherited from Russell.
As they bond with each other Tyler admits that he is still questioning how he feels about Russell. Hamish suggests that Aaron’s method of calling Russell’s lost phone and leaving messages isn’t quite as silly as Tyler thinks.
So Tyler gives this method a shot and vents his turmoil over Russell to the phone, not realising that Hamish is in possession of the mobile and listening to every word Tyler has said.
Things get even weirder when Hamish makes some subtle hints about Tyler’s management of the garage’s nances. Then Hamish tells Tyler and Aaron not to go through with their plans to sell the boat to cash in their inheritance. The boys take his advice on board not realising there might be something else going on. Just what is Hamish up to?
