Trivia

When the recurring character of Alan Fisher (Simon Kay) was killed-off, the producers later regretted their decision due to a fan back-lash. Several ideas were penned where the actor could make a believable return, including one where a movie was made on Alan's novel, "The Crest of a Wave" (although the novel wasn't launched until 2001 in the show), and Simon would show up as another character "with a moustache" to audition for the lead, stunning other cast members with his resemblance to the dead Alan.

good show
20 March 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Even though I am nearly 26 yrs old, I must admit I find Home and Away is one of my favourite, if not favourite Aussie soap around.

I must admit though, one thing that DOES annoy me is how some things drag on and on (Like Project 56).

I live in Brisbane, and was down in Sydney last year, Although I didn't actually go to Palm Beach (where the beach settings are shot), I was glad to at least be in the same city as the show was shot. I do think though, they need a few more new characters in the show.

As for my most liked character.....Well hard to say, Kate Ritchie is now 27 and was only 9 yrs old when she first starred in the soap, in its debut in 1988. Her and Ray Meagher who plays Alf, are the only originals.
