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

Lose yourself in a little history, mystery and glamour
30 August 2014 | by farside-94-599562See all my reviews

I discovered this show towards the end of Series 1 on a friend's recommendation. What a find! Set just after WWII, APTCH is largely set at "Ash Park", a grand rural Australian homestead. It covers the drama, loves and lives of those who live in and around that homestead, including a mysterious woman who arrives via ship from overseas. Beautifully written and filmed with gorgeous locations, it is a quality program that reinforces Australia's ability to produce world class drama. Noni Hazelhurst plays the family matriarch, Elizabeth, with a cool, calculating menace - her family give her plenty to contend with as their individual and collective secrets are revealed and her ability to hold everything together becomes more and more of a challenge! Channel 7 had the insight to produce such a fantastic show but alas, they decided to stop production at the end of season 2! Hopefully they'll have the insight to bring it back!
