Trivia

Sheila Kennelly and Frank Lloyd, who played original characters Floss and Neville McPhee, were let go from the show when their contracts expired at the end of the first year, because the producers felt more time needed to be focused on the younger cast members. The producers did not tell them until the last minute, but both had already found out by reading about their character's departures in a television soap magazine. The Executive Producer at the time, said he hoped they could be brought back in future episodes as special guests, but this never occurred, with them only being mentioned by other characters from time to time. Ultimately, Sheila Kennelly did return in 2000, and has returned a few more times since. However, by this time Frank Lloyd had passed away, so the decision was made to kill his character off, and not re-cast (off-screen). The same thing happened to original cast member Helena Bozich, who after just four months was let go, because the producers wanted to focus more time on the other younger cast members. It was planned, however, that she would make a dramatic return some weeks later, but this never eventuated. See more »

Goofs

Throughout the years, numerous characters have referred to "the city" (meaning Sydney) as being either "up" or "down" from Summer Bay. The general consensus, however, is that Summer Bay is north of Sydney (approximately 100km away), as is the real-life filming location. See more »

a very good drama
15 March 2002 | by mongoose249See all my reviews

ok,maybe it can be over the top! but the person who said that it was the worst TV show well for a silly TV show its lasted pretty long! it is a very good show. And is famous to many people over the world so get over you self whoever said that!

It is the BEST TV drama yet! Their characters are not real but is really realistic to life in Australia: Divorce, affairs, children, unexpected pregnancies, runaway kids,abusive families, love, loss, honour, and heroism. The diner is something also that makes the show. Believe me people! this is a very good drama. It is very good, Trust Me! its great!
