"He's dead!I'm dead!"
30 August 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A gorgeously conceived episode, although somewhat hilarious in hindsight:A few years on, most of the characters don't seem to be any better off than they were in this nightmare future and at least a few are actually worse off.

But, taken in context, it works.Don is reduced to a shambling wreck, having lost his best friend and his grandson.Sally, despite not appearing, seems to be on the verge of a nervous breakdown.Noah's an alcoholic bum(although he apparently still has his own house)and Hayley's in a loveless marriage.Even though we aren't told how far in the future this is, nice work is done with the make-up, with even Hayley, who at first glance looks no different, appearing subtly older. Josh does just seem to have put on a suit though.

The final conversation between Alf and Don, with the former appearing as a mysterious Aborigine, manages to transcend the bizarre situation and, like Donald, you believe it utterly, although Alf standing alongside his own avatar is possibly a head scratch too far.But Alf is left seeing just how much Summer Bay needs him and Ailsa's last message hits home.
