Wealthy but plain heiress Stephanie Harper marries handsome tennis player Greg Marsden, and thinks she has found true love. That is, until her husband makes a play for her best friend and plots to get rid of Stephanie so he can take her money by pushing her off a boat and into the waiting jaws of a crocodile. However, she survives the attack and, although horribly disfigured, spends months undergoing surgery to have her face repaired by a brilliant plastic surgeon. However, the now beautiful Stephanie no longer looks like the woman she once was. She returns to the city under the name Tara Welles to seek vengeance on her husband, who has told everyone she was taken by a crocodile, and is now waiting to inherit all of her money. Now, she can have revenge... Written by

Return to Eden is a film of rubber and wood. Rubber faces and crocodiles and wooden acting. It is hilarious. The story is as follows: Rich lonley heiress Stephanie Harper (Rebecca Gilling)falls in love with a gold digging tennis star Greg Marsden (James Reyne). They marry, and not long after this he attempts to kill her by pushing her into crocodile infested waters where she is mauled. She is rescued by a kindly hermit (isn't this always the case) who nurses her back to health and gives her his life savings, consisting of a bag of opals which she sells for $2000. Stephanie then goes to a plasic surgeon who falls in love with herand has her appearance changed, no mean feat for that sort of money. After this she changes her name to Tara wells, becomes a 'Supermodel',and seeks her revenge. The funniest thing about this is that nobody recognises her. As stephanie, she wears a grey Putty nose and jowls, which makes her look as though she has done 2 rounds with mike tyson. As Tara she is the most graceless, unattractive 'Supermodel' i have ever set eyes upon. (the 80s' fashions are hilarious). James Reyne, as Marsden, said in an interview on a DVD i purchased that he wanted to make his character look and act as though he has a rod up his arse. He was succesfull. Although he looked like a man with terminal piles, with a rod up his arse. I was expecting the revelation the he was an android, alas this never came. The plastic surgeon, Dan Marshall, is an actor of fine quality, or would be if this were dinner theater. From the sound of his voice he acts by day and does the top 40 on the radio by night. This mini series is absolutley hilarious try to get a copy, but have a box of tissues with you!
