Stephanie Harper has it all - beauty, riches and a loving husband. That is, until her husband falls in love with her best friend. In order to get her money he pushes her off a boat and into the waiting jaws of a crocodile. However, she survives the attack and, although horribly disfigured, spends months under the operating table to have her face restored to a different beauty. Now, she returns to the city under a different name and with a different face to seek vengeance on her husband, who has told everyone she was taken by a crocodile, and is now waiting the 7-year legal waiting period until he can gain her money and marry her best friend. Now, she can have revenge... Written by

The impossible has been achieved; Aaron Spelling now seems like Norman Rosemont.
Norman Rosemont specialises in extremely classy television productions; Aaron Spelling... doesn't. But "Return To Eden," a daft but successful bid to show Australian TV could produce glossy trash just as well as its US counterpart, makes everything he's ever done seem like a gem in comparison (with the exception of "Charmed," which is quite good in its own right).
The three-part miniseries ended with the now transformed Tara triumphant alongside the plastic surgeon who became her lover, and her villainous ex dead and gone; the subsequent and sub-standard series saw most of the cast return, with Peta Toppano replacing Wendy Hughes as the scheming Jilly. Cue riches, boardroom backstabbing, fantastic scenery, beautiful people (well, sort of...), and jaw-droppingly bad writing and acting. And crocodiles in the pool(!).
The miniseries, by the way, was produced by Hanna Barbera Australia. That explains a lot.
