THE KNIGHTS RIDE BACK I N

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - TV Guide - - Tv Guide -

THE ads have given away the sea­son re­turn plot shock, but need­less to say, it’s the long good­night for one mem­ber of the Knight fam­ily. It’s a com­pli­ca­tion our good doc­tor Hugh (Rodger Corser) wasn’t ex­pect­ing, just a month or so be­fore he’s eye­ing the end of his sur­gi­cal sus­pen­sion and penance in his bush home town of Why­hope.

There’s plenty to keep him from mak­ing a re­turn to his old life in the city, in­clud­ing all that un­re­solved sex­ual ten­sion with Dr Penny Cartwright (Hay­ley McEl­hin­ney) and the con­stant the­atrics of his fam­ily. His son Ajax (Matt Cast­ley) just mar­ried his childhood sweet­heart (Chloe Bayliss) and they are ex­pect­ing a baby. His brother (Ryan John­son) is still work­ing the farm and brew­ery, while Ni­cole da Silva, who plays his wife Char­lie, tries to hide her real-life preg­nancy be­hind bars, ta­bles and coats.

But you will gloss over much of that in episode one, mes­merised as I was by the per­for­mance of the wholly un­der-ap­pre­ci­ated Tina Bur­sill (pic­tured, with Corser). What a na­tional trea­sure she is and the ab­so­lute heart­beat of this won­der­ful series.
