Storyline

1953. After 20 years living in Europe, Sarah Adams returns to Australia. While working as a nurse on the ocean voyage home, Sarah meets the influential and wealthy Bligh family and discovers a scandalous family secret. In Sydney, Sarah finds her estranged mother still unwilling to forgive her perceived "sin" of converting to Judaism. With no other prospects, Sarah takes up George Bligh's offer of a job in the Inverness hospital, much to the disapproval of George's overbearing mother, Elizabeth. Written by L. Hamre

Brilliant - another wonderful Australian drama
18 April 2015 | by fiona_r_lambSee all my reviews

OK, I've only seen one episode as American channel PBS has just started showing it. BUT I already LOVE it. I saw Marta Dusseldorp in Janet King which was shown on Canada's CBC last fall and I really love this actress. I'm happy that there are at least 23 episodes to look forward to. But if I'm reading the board correctly, it's been axed after series 2. I'm already sad but at least I know it's a great series and something to really enjoy in the next few months.

We've had some amazing Australian shows in Canada the last few years - East West 101, The Slap, Secrets and Lies, Janet King and now this. More please!
