  1. They were a brilliant family and were a breath of fresh air. H&A was at its peak back then.
  2. Perhaps he was older if he was in WWII, and is about the same age as Bert King, Pippa's dad. In 1988 Nev may have been 67/68 then. Lots of actors play younger characters but as said, it can work the other way, playing older characters. Nev died in 1996 (I guess aged about 75) so if still alive, he'd be about 100 now. Nev and Floss married in 1949 as they had their 39th anniversary in 1988. I guess Floss was born about 1930.
  3. I thought I read once that they had lived at the caravan park since 1984 but whether they lived at Summer Bay before that is another story. I think in a 1988 episode Lance and Martin did say they were at school with Gary and Gary was 22 in 1988 so born c1966. Random trivia but in regard to Nev's age, I think Nev was born about 1925 as Floss said he was "60 odd" in a March 1988 episode. Nev's surname and his bagpipe interest strongly suggests Scottish blood, like Alf has.
  4. H&A is still not without its flaws but it is head and shoulders above what it was in 2014. It has regained a lot of the original charm and balance, it still has dark stories but is much more watchable. I still dip in and out now and again. May start watching for good again soon. Neighbours now seems to be becoming the more crime driven soap now.
  5. I do think the show did lose its comedy element when Des Monaghan took over. It became a much more serious show by the end of 1989 and seemed to stay that way. Neighbours never lost its comedy element.
  6. In 1988, after several months, even Tom and Pippa became sidelined while the supporting characters such as the Macklins, Alison Patterson, Phil Matheson, Gary Samuels and Jeff Samuels were elevated to main character status during their short reigns. Pippa really shined though once Tom died of his heart attack in 1990.
  7. I went for Kat. If it had been all time, it would be either Barnett or Nick Parrish, or Joel Nash.
  8. No wonder Donald Fisher split from Marilyn all those years ago. I think he found her insufferable.
  9. Morag should not have been bought back after her 1993 exit where she was disowned by the family after trying to craftily gain custody of Sam. I remember when Alf lambasted a crying Morag saying she was no longer part of this family. To me that would have been the perfect final exit of evil Morag.
  10. That is why if Don, Celia or Morag were still around, they would probably be extras just sat drinking tea and reminiscing about pupils of Summer Bay High from years gone by, and watching the billionth punch up on the beach, and tutting.
  11. No doubt if she did return, it would be revealed that she was pregnant when she left the Bay with Owen Dalby's child, thus giving Alf his billionth illegitimate grandchild.
  12. I remember her first episode, she would not stop talking as Vinnie picked her up, I am sure that was her first scene. Vinnie told her she is too chatty. She has certainly quietened down a bit now.
  13. Emma Jackson and Karen Dean were good. Shame they never stuck around for that long.
  14. 1995 followed by 1988, 1994, 1989 and 2004. Jack Wilson was great, he often was up to no good and used the cover of darkness to get up to his pranks such as when he crept into Don's bedroom thinking it was Angel, and when Aftershave the dog wrecked Alf's shop in the middle of the night and Jack was almost caught trying to retrieve the dog, and he pelted Alf with flour and eggs before running off into the night. At the time Alf did not know who doused him until Jack admitted it later.
