LO­CAL DRAMA HITS HOME

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

THIS is one of those Aussie dra­mas that come along every now and then and makes you feel glad there is still money left in the bud­get to tell good home-grown sto­ries. If you haven’t watched this show yet, the con­cept is sim­ple: five sort-of sin­gle adults are seated to­gether at a wed­ding and de­cide on im­pulse to buy a home to­gether and move in as house­mates. Sim­ple, but full of promis­ing sto­ry­lines and with a strong cast in­clud­ing Stephen Pea­cocke, Kat Stewart (pic­tured), Doris Younane, Katie Robert­son, Roy Joseph and Hugh Sheri­dan (

With such a di­verse cast, the tales that are told are so re­lat­able – un­re­quited love, car­ing for an ail­ing older par­ent, midlife re­la­tion­ship com­ing to a cross­roads and chang­ing ca­reers – plus all the hi­lar­i­ous high jinks that comes with five adults shar­ing a home. In tonight’s episode, Younane’s char­ac­ter Heather dom­i­nates the script as she turns 50. She’s left her hus­band and kids to live in the share house and is hav­ing a steamy on-again­off-again af­fair with the res­i­dent hot tradie Ben (Pea­cocke). As she tries to get through the day with as lit­tle no­tice on her birth­day as pos­si­ble, Ains­ley (Robert­son) plans a sur­prise party at the house – what could pos­si­bly go wrong? And if you’re a

fan, you’ll love see­ing Celia Ire­land in a to­tally dif­fer­ent role to in­mate Liz Birdsworth.
