Storyline

Katherine and Nick return to her childhood home in Nova Scotia after her mother becomes ill. Nick is a struggling screenwriter while Katherine a partner in a successful Los Angeles eatery. Nick and Katherine decide to stay in Black Harbour with their two daughters and manage to buy a major share of the family boatyard, with the idea of building upscale boats for a rich clientele. But home holds many memories for Katherine, who ran away because she was constantly in conflict with her fellow townspeople. Black Harbour is still home to her first love, Paul, who works at the boatyard, but is also married and a father. Written by Ron Kerrigan <mvg@whidbey.com>

Fab Drama!
15 April 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I'm not one for serial dramas, but I have been very lucky to be able to see Black Harbour in all it's Nova Scotian glory via the kindness of friends from across the Pond.

The tale of Kit Haskell (nee Hubbard) and her disaffected family is well written and played, nicely understated (despite the 3rd Season having Len Hubbard - Kit's older brother - doing strange things such as running away and joining a quasi-religious community, alluding to the Crusader Legend of Oak Island, but then that's another tale...) and played with a realism without the need for over the top characters. The struggles and lessons learnt by the series characters actually convey hope and have them grow, rather than repeat the same endless scenarios of other dramas, such as the BBC's 'Howard's Way'.

Despite the irritating traits of the flawed Haskell and Hubbard Families, as well as the employees of the Hubbard Family boatyard, one cannot but feel drawn and maybe be endeared to them. It's also a plus point to the writers that the series ended on a positive note when Black Harbour was pulled during series 3. It makes me sad though that more Gemini nominations and awards were not forthcoming, including Geraint Wyn Davies who was nominated for the best male lead in a drama series.
