Ray Meagher remains the only original cast member still on the show since its premiere in 1988. Costars Kate Richie (Sally) and Norman Coburn (Fisher) received a Guinness World Record along with Meagher for being the longest-serving actors in an Australian serial in 2001. Coburn left in 2003 after fifteen years, while Richie left in 2008 after twenty years on the show. Both have since been eclipsed by Lynne McGranger who has held the role of Irene Roberts since 1992, and is now the second-longest serving actor in the same role (and longest-serving actress) in Australian television history behind costar Meagher. Ada Nicodemou has also been on the show continuously for seventeen years, since 2000, also overtaking Coburn. See more »
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 »
Lets start off with the line "Im Sorry", yes, this is the most overused line in the whole show. People get thick with each other, say I'm sorry,everything is hunky dory again, and then it all starts again,over,and over,and over,and over again. Second off, the story lines are mind boggling, absolutely, atrocious. Each character in the whole show has to be the most unluckiest person in the world,being cheated on, being accused of murder, get pregnant by someone who eventually leaves town, and then finally death, or just leaves anyway because his/her business contract has expired after 2 years. 1 of these things has happened to at least all the character on the show. And the drinking problem storyline is still there, yup, after 22 years,its still there. And you know what makes me really sick is that each character has to stick their nose in to other peoples business, and the other person gladly tells them everything thats happening in their life, while the other person says "well if there's anything i can do,let me know" if it was me,id tell them to mind their own go damn business. Each person is one and the same. It is so unreal that this programme gets funding. This is the perfect example of bad television, it is juvenile, the female adults are either pure soccer mom stereotypes, or just act like teenagers themselves. Its a disgrace
