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.

Fabulous TV Series
14 March 2002 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

Congratulations to an Aussie soap that has managed to stay alive after all these years. I like how the show often brings back some of its former characters. Some of the most memorable episodes include the land slide where disaster hit Summer Bay and when Dr Wilson (Bryan Wiseman) told Shauna Bradley (Kylie Watson) that she had heart disease and needed a pacemaker. Congratulations to Russell Webb, the series producer and Ray Harding Script producer for keeping such a wonderful series together. I am and always will be a devoted fan.
