Succession plan post-Ray Meagher


Recommended Posts

When Ray Meagher eventually decides to retire and leave Home and Away, who can replace him in his patriarchal role in the Bay, and the face of Summer Bay?

Personally I'd be thinking Justin. James Stewart is well established in the role of Justin, is likeable, well known, and IMO there are still many stories that could be told with his character. They could even move him into the Summer Bay House when the time comes.

I like John but he works best as a supporting character. Can't see him being the face of Home and Away.

Irene Roberts as a women can be a leader and Irene has shown over the years to be just as no nonsense and fiery tempered like Alf . 

There'll be a lot more "Flippin"'s "Gawd"s,  "Girlie's and "Darl"s per minute🤣

As long as we have that "trusted person" as the unofficial guardian of Summer Bay, I don't think it matters whether it is a matriarch or patriarch figure. Irene is the obvious choice for that role, given she's the next longest serving character. 

As much as I like Marilyn and John, I don't think either of them are really strong enough characters to be leading the show. They work best in supporting roles.

For me, Irene's lingo is just as iconic as Alf's :lol: 

It's just a shame they are not as widely renowned or known outside of H&A fandom in the same way as Alf's are.
