  • A soap in two hemispheres.

    In the early 1990s UK tv schedules were full of Australian soaps & ITV came up with this to entice the nations Oz soap viewing public. Set in Cheshire & Sydney with the Thompson & Stephens families rspectively. The Thompsons were stereotype uptight upper class Brits while the Stephens were the handsome but dysfunctional counterparts from down under. Mike, the head of the Thompson clan is played by Malcolm Stoddard who is best remembered for that ludicrous 1980s Renault ad with Rosalyn Landor. A scrawny Jude Law played his youngest son Nathan while his other son was played by Martin Glyn Murray from the pop group The Mock Turtles. Diana, the matriach of the Sydney based Stephens was played by Briony Behets, star of numerous Australian soaps & movies. After a couple of years this show had failed to attract the target audience, dull storylines with unendearing characters, & it\'s original cast along with the Australian setting was dropped. The solely Cheshire based soap limped on for another year before being cast to soap heaven.moreless
