Storyline

This Australian soap is not defined by a family (as Dallas' Ewings) but tellingly named after its site: an affluent residential stretch of the Gold Coast in Queensland, where people of different walks of life -the casting guarantees lots of eye candy on the beach, many actors being young and attractive- gyrate around the wealthy owners of villas and yachts. A major story line is the murder of tycoon Sonia Kingsley, who had even more enemies then the initial list of suspects, such as her ex, TV reporter Trey Devlin and various other family and business relations. However as the investigation creeps forward other events unfold and other characters and story-lines are interwoven, including the not so wealthy, e.g. Canadian Tim Browning who works as a lifeguard, and would-be-capitalists such as the young but enterprising Rick Carlyle.

Camp entertaining Aussie drama!
16 June 2008 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

When the Series began in January 1996, rich socialite Sonia Kingsley was run down by a car while jogging on the beach, even though it took around 30 episodes before we found out the killer, the show introduced us to a cast of 12 other characters, some we loved and some we loved to hate. Towards the end of the first season viewers were treated to a long running serial killer tale and thats where the series turned to high camp melodrama and intrigue! Never a show to take itself seriously, Pacific Drive never really found itself to be an instant hit show, but had many loyal fans who managed to keep up with it until the final episode aired in 2001. One interesting fact was that had it allowed to be screened without being constantly moved from time-slot to time-slot, the whole series would of been over in 18 months, instead it took nearly 5 years to screen all 391 episodes. Some memorable story lines were Zoe being held captive by her deranged flatmate, Bethany contracting HIV, Trey & Amber's forbidden affair, and of course the serial killer tale that knocked off 3 major characters. RIP Pacific Drive and all those who sailed in her!!
