It seems like every Australian actor or actress has been in this series, passing through on their way from The Young Doctors (Another long running Aussie soap). Although decidedly camp in places, it was highly watchable when shown in England during the mid '80s, and I couldn't believe that actors could portray such ceaselessly vindictive characters like Patricia Morrell. Her married truck driving 'lover' David Palmer, would always say something stereotypically Australian like 'Cobber', or 'Grab us a couple o' tinnies.' while holding his stomach inside a pair of tight jeans. And Patricia's son Wayne, played with an over the top performance by Ian Rawlings, kept up the pace nicely
