I N THE NEIGH­BOUR­HOOD

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - TV Guide - - Front Page -

THERE’S ro­mance brewing on this Aus­tralian drama, and it just hap­pens to be be­tween two in­dus­try stal­warts – Mar­cus Graham as Pav and Roz Ham­mond as Clau­dia. He’s a for­mer cop, she’s a sin­gle mum and a nurse. They’re de­ter­mined to keep what­ever’s go­ing on a se­cret – mainly be­cause ev­ery­one has a big mouth, and pos­si­bly be­cause it seems ev­ery­one lives in the apart­ment block this se­ries is set in. Poor old Pav can’t even buy pro­tec­tion at the lo­cal store, just in case, with­out the shop­keeper Iris try­ing to work out what’s go­ing on. Pav rocks up for the date, and Clau­dia’s teenage daugh­ter Sabine is shocked when the cook­ies he’s mak­ing are both medic­i­nal and herbal. Sabine’s got some re­la­tion­ship dra­mas of her own. But a bet­ter sto­ry­line is when Iris re­cruits one of her gay son’s friends to help her set up an on­line pro­file to help him find a date. With­out his knowl­edge. She’s so clue­less about the whole thing she thinks she can use a baby app and tell po­ten­tial suit­ors he doesn’t like oc­to­pus or cel­ery. And soon she’s get­ting a quick ed­u­ca­tion about emo­jis and on­line acronyms. Back at Pav’s house, he’s help­ing out ex-wife Leonie (Shari Sebbens, pic­tured with Graham), who is hav­ing a long over­due mo­ment with her fa­ther, mak­ing him fi­nally tell her why he tried to hide her indige­nous his­tory from her all her life. Could Pav’s his­tory with Leonie get in the way of some­thing hap­pen­ing with Clau­dia?
