Of the seventeen original cast members (one still remains today), all but five have reprised their roles on the show since their initial departures. All have reappeared at least twice, except for three (Ailsa, Bobby and Tom) who came back as "ghosts" when their characters were killed-off. The original characters who have not returned are Neville McPhee, Lynn Davenport and Justine Clarke as Roo Stewart (who is now played by Georgie Parker) and Vanessa Downing who played Pippa (the role was recast after her departure, and her successor has reappeared as the character, following her own departure, since). Neville McPhee was killed-off off-screen. See more »
When Carly Lucini had her baby in 1992, it was a girl. But when the Ross family tried to help Pippa regain her memory in 1997, they said Carly had had a boy! See more »
Well, it isn't hard to figure out what's going on, Maximus. I wasn't born yesterday!
You can say that again. I mean, you're very smart, Mrs. Smart.

In June 1996 the credits changed so Shane approaches from the other side of the screen, causing Angel to be confused. See more »
OK so its half way through the year 2004 and I was hoping that Home and Away had grown...grown with the changes in today's world grown with their characters but I switch on the TV and their is Danni Sutherland (played by Tammin Surksok?) getting attacked, stalked and crying once again. Everything that can happen to a girl happens to Danni, which I'm getting sick off. There are other characters in the show that could be used to a much greater extent. How about Hailey (played by Bec Cartright) who instead of prancing around in barely their clothes could actually get a decent story line.
Theirs not even a normal family anymore. Jade starts crying and dying, Kirsty who is 17, married to her sister's attacker and pregnant gets congratulated when she tells her mother, step-mother and father that she's pregnant. What parents would welcome their 17-year-old girl with open arms when they're pregnant by their sister's attacker? (Yes and I do know this is a show its just that they, the writers, are trying to portray real life and I don't believe this is real life)
Alf is a character I like and so was Jesse before he met Leigha. All the characters I truly liked have left the show but I have been watching this show since I was three and now that I'm in my late teens I will continue to watch the lives of the residents of summer bay.
Home and Away should start using the characters they have and the actor's talents not just put them in ridiculous story lines. Do something real, something that would be believable.
