fantasy frolics

A lingerie-clad Katie answers her door to Wyatt, who’s dressed as a pizza delivery man! There’s no doubting that Katie and Wyatt’s relationship is as strong as ever but that doesn’t mean that it doesn’t need some extra spice from time to time. Given their already playful sex life, some fantasy role-playing is always a good source of the required spice. Putting the idea into practice, a lingerie-clad Katie (Heather Tom) answers her door to Wyatt (Darin Brooks) who’s sporting a fake moustache and dressed as a pizza delivery man! He’s come to delivery Ms. Logan’s “extra-large” and exclaims “mama mia!” upon spying her attire. Feigning dismay at having no money for the order, Katie wonders how she should pay him. Wyatt responds by kissing her, leaving his moustache clinging to her lips.…

NEIGHBOURS There’s an uneasy time coming up in Ramsay Street for longtime favourite STEPH (Carla Bonner). She had hoped her return to Erinsborough in recent years would give her the peace she so desperately wanted after so many tough times, but the truth is it’s been hard work every step of the way to be back. Having survived the recent opening of Flame Tree Retreat, and the constant interference of her well-meaning mum LYN (Janet Andrewartha), Steph hopes that it now will just be easier days ahead with her hunky young lover JACK (Andrew Morley) by her side. But Steph knows something is just not right, and it concerns the relationship between Jack and PAIGE (Olympia Valance). As the father of baby GABE, Jack will now always be connected with Paige — whether…

where it started

A small beachside community. A young couple from the city wanting to make a new start. A group of foster children from the wrong side of the tracks that needed help and love. They were the three main ingredients that a network executive and a drama scriptwriter had in mind in late 1987 as they began work on a new series they hoped would capture a nation’s heart, and be a response to the juggernaut of Neighbours that dominated the TV screen on another network. The TV executive was Alan Bateman, who wanted a teen-themed drama to attract a new generation of viewers. The scriptwriter was Bevan Lee, who had already created drama gold on the earlier hit Sons and Daughters . It was up to Lee to take the rough outline of…
