It’s time to bid a teary good­bye to the Blighs on A Place to Call Home

A MOD­ERN woman Pub­lished au­thor Anna (Abby Earl) con­tem­plates a glamorous life of wealth and pres­tige as she pre­pares for a po­ten­tially lu­cra­tive meet­ing with Hol­ly­wood stu­dio ex­ecs! They’re in­ter­ested in turn­ing her novel into a movie! How­ever, Anna’s starry-eyed prospects are shaken by her pub­lisher’s warn­ing that the movie mak­ers won’t look favourably on an un­wed and heav­ily preg­nant woman; the stigma would be too in­sur­mount­able to tol­er­ate! Will Anna let shame de­stroy her dreams or will she ght to be recog­nised and ac­cepted for her tal­ent – and her per­sonal lifestyle choices?

MA­TRI­ARCH with a dif­fer­ence

End­ing her ten­ure at the hos­pi­tal, Sarah (Marta Dus­sel­dorp) steps into the role of mis­tress of Ash Park with aplomb. Fig­u­ra­tively box­ing up her past life as Nurse Sarah Adams, she fully trans­forms into Mrs Sarah Bligh, lling her life with ev­ery joy­ful mo­ment she can nd. Warmed by David’s (El­liot Domoney) care­free, child­ish laugh­ter and shar­ing a Shab­bat din­ner with Ge­orge (Brett Climo) and El­iz­a­beth (Noni Ha­zle­hurst) to cel­e­brate the Jewish Sab­bath, she in­sti­gates change within the Ash Park house­hold. She’s de­ter­mined to con­vert the grand, mono­lithic house on the hill into a home that’s wall-to-wall love and hap­pi­ness.

The SWISS mis­sus

Ven­tur­ing into un­charted ter­ri­tory and un­veil­ing a brave out­ward trans­for­ma­tion – as well as bury­ing old prej­u­dices, El­iz­a­beth con­tin­ues on her mis­sion to be a new woman. Vow­ing to be “Switzer­land” in all mat­ters of fam­ily-re­lated fric­tion, El­iz­a­beth as­sures her amazed loved ones that she’ll now help, rather than hin­der, their ef­forts to solve their prob­lems. Her rst or­der of neu­tral­ity is to set up a meet­ing to aid Jack (Craig Hall) in his quest to bet­ter serve his pa­tients’ needs at the hos­pi­tal, and then step back and let her son-in-law nd the so­lu­tion to get­ting what it is he wants...

Mak­ing MEN talk

Mo­ti­vated by all the trauma he’s wit­nessed in In­ver­ness, Jack ve­he­mently pushes ahead with his brave plan to open the Dawn Briggs Com­mu­nity Clinic in the hope of en­cour­ag­ing the town’s men to talk about their prob­lems. Hav­ing had great suc­cess with the women’s ver­sion, Jack thinks a male ver­sion should fol­low suit; his bu­reau­cratic su­pe­ri­ors in Syd­ney feel oth­er­wise! De­spite

the fail­ure of the clinic’s rst group meet­ing, Jack won’t con­cede de­feat and, gal­vanised by Henry’s (Tim Draxl) warn­ing that Neil Bur­ton (Ni­cholas Bell) is bent on de­lib­er­ately ru­in­ing the clinic’s chances, he con­fronts his neme­sis, aware that his per­sonal pride and rep­u­ta­tion as the top doc is on the line if he doesn’t safe­guard the com­mu­nity’s wel­fare!

OUT and about

Once con­tent in her mar­riage, Carolyn (Sara Wise­man) dives head­long into the bo­hemian lifestyle she’s sought since mov­ing to Syd­ney to help James (David Berry) with his in­te­rior de­sign busi­ness. Re­con­nect­ing with Delia Craig (Maya Stange) for the rst time since their love af­fair in Lon­don years ear­lier, Carolyn’s over­come by re­newed feel­ings. She knows she still loves her hus­band Jack with all her heart... but Delia has stirred up pas­sions within her she thought she’d for­got­ten about! She loves Delia,

too! Tor­tured by the next step she knows she has to take, Carolyn ad­mits to Delia that she’s too much of a coward to tell Jack their mar­riage is over...

A han­ker­ing for HARRY

At­tend­ing a party at the Swanson man­sion with Anna, Henry has only one thought in his head: Harry Pol­son! Since shar­ing a noc­tur­nal kiss with Harry (Do­minic All­burn) by the glow of re­light on the Ash Park prop­erty, it’s been a strug­gle to fo­cus on any­thing but each other. Henry wants worka­holic Harry to re­lax and join him at the Swanson soiree, but re­mains un­sure whether he will – as he ur­gently keeps an eye on Pru­dence’s (Heather Mitchell) front door. Mean­while, Ge­orge is play­ing match­maker, en­cour­ag­ing Harry to loosen the reins and head to the city to spend time with Henry. As the party un­folds, will Henry’s heart’s de­sire nally ap­pear?

HAPPY FAM­ILY It’s a fresh start for Sarah and Co
