Storyline

After the death of his wife and son during childbirth, Claire's father, Jack McLeod, married city girl Ruth Silverman. Tess was the product of this tempestuous but short-lived relationship. Growing up, the two girls had been very close but were separated when Ruth took 5-year-old Tess back to the city. Twenty years later, after Jack's sudden death, his daughters each inherit half of heavily mortgaged Drover's Run. Tess, who recently lost her mother to breast cancer, returns to Drover's in the hopes of cashing out and opening a cafe in the city, but is disappointed to be met with a less-than-rosy financial picture and the open resentment of her older sister. After Claire fires the male workforce, the sisters, with the help of housekeeper Meg Fountain, her daughter Jodi, and local girl Becky, decide to run the property themselves.

One of Australia's best home grown dramas
5 November 2002 | by hws98_ddaveySee all my reviews

Channel Nine's 'McLeod's Daughters' was one of the most highly anticipated shows of 2001 in Australia. The programme aimed to show the world the beauty of South Australia, just as 'Water Rats' had for Sydney Harbour. The result is a highly polished drama, with beautiful scenery and pleasant characters, although this show is never going to be groundbreaking.

All in all, 'McLeod's Daughters' is typical Australian tea-time drama.
