Bobby being recast would not have been good for me, I'd just think of her as "Not Bobby". Like the recast Cody in Neighbours was a fake.

If Don Fisher was still a head at SBH today, no doubt the lippy students would reply with "OK boomer" to Flathead when he admonished them lol. Don is too old to put up with such crap now from pupils anyway.





You can't "recast" anybody! They will be detected as FAKES, I mean look at "Pippa". She was a prime example of that. And Roo. Another fake with no resemblance to the real one.

Long time lurker but didn't see this posted anywhere... In a very unexpected move, the entire 1988 season has been uploaded to Amazon Prime today. I don't know if that paves the way for future se

It certainly is a great thing for UK fans of the show, and it's definitely a step in the right direction! Of course it would have been nice to see a terrestrial television repeat so that it's free for

Episode 200-399 ADDED TODAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sorry but Bobby was a one-off. There are just some characters you CANNOT recast.


I know, but anything is better than nothing. I would probably be the first to say it’s a terrible recast just like the new Roo, but at least we would still have Bobby on our TV screen.

It is now 18th Jan in Australia but still 17th here, so happy birthday for yesterday H&A in Australia.

The first regular episode had Matt chatting up Carly on the beach with Lynn. Carly takes Lyn's thunder from her after Matt asks Lyn to her his surf jacket zip up.

"I'm Carly" says Carly to Matt, "I'm sick" says Lynn to Matt.

Though, with YOU it's the reverse when it comes to Pippa! Hahahaha! They tried to be slick by putting Debra in the kitchen from a long shot but everyone knew about the recast (continuity announcers said so before). I'm guessing you didn't care for Duncan No.4 on his flying (no pun intended as he's now a pilot) visit in 2016 (Benedict Wall did a decent job of portraying a Matured family-man 30-something Duncan, IMO)

There's only been three real nose dives and they've only been temporary (Selina, Mitch and Ailsa) thank god.

Recasting is a necessary evil if the writers are invested in the character instead of cooking up a sibling/relative and giving that character.  And if they have co-star they can successfully play off (Debs/Dennis was a great roll of the dice and she wanted him as bad he did, that's not entirely acting in 1990/91! Plus their bedroom scenes were organic enough, well as organic as you could get away with in a primetime soap opera). Also if its a kid bar Sam or Sally, that requires an older head to play out more grown up storylines.
