    Neighbours - unmissable drama

    I've been waiting for then to fix the outside of Harold's since 2006, I have given up hope at this point.

    Neighbours - unmissable drama

    Nicolette added it - I think it was part of that last-ditch attempt to make the show look a bit sleeker. Terese got her Fourth Wall at about the same time. The door next to the toilet inside it meant to lead outside, though I'm not sure the inside and outside sets actually match up at all. It...

    Neighbours - unmissable drama

    The new beer garden was mentioned - their used to be a roofed area which I think they have demolished the roof on the right hand side to make space

    Olly Alexander / Years & Years - "Dizzy"

    In a sense, yes to both - my suspicion is not that this had more to do with the potential for the BBC to prevent him from doing promo on the BBC for future projects.

    Olly Alexander / Years & Years - "Dizzy"

    Where has this been reported? Because it seems completely unbelievable that the BBC would even consider this, considering the optics of it and the political uproar this would cause in the UK.

    Neighbours - unmissable drama

    I suppose - but it ditches what would have made her interesting, or at least more 3-dimensional. Why bother making her Cara's sister if she's just going to be 97th cardboard cut-out 'bitch' archetype we've had in the last 10 years? Is it available from the start? I feel like I looked when it...

    Neighbours - unmissable drama

    Mac telling Terese she could get permissions for Eirini Rising through council in exchange for a fee (bribe). It's difficult to remember that Mac supposedly has some unspecified role with the local council.

    Neighbours - unmissable drama

    I didn't mean about the rapid exit or the inevitable second-act. I mostly meant that they went too far. She could have been a sustainable, long term morally dubious character. Instead we had far too much pointless scheming, and then they made her responsible for the death of the baby and she...

    Neighbours - unmissable drama

    Well, they squandered Chelsea didn't they? Could have done a whole lot more with her, and instead we just go another villian-of-the-fortnight

    Neighbours - unmissable drama

    They used to take filming breaks throughout the year, and some actors have always taken more holidays (as you can no doubt tell from her accent (!) Holly grew up in the UK, and Karl used to 'go to visit her'). I'm not sure if these are pre-booked holidays/work, if the veteran actors wanted more...

    I'm holding out hope for some location episodes

    Neighbours - unmissable drama

    He lives with Paul. Leo might actually have never lived on street? When they arrived, David and Leo had a Lassiter's/Eclipse Apartment, then they moved in with Paul. He might have lived briefly with Terese or David&Aaron, but he's a classic of the no-real-fixed-abode trope of Neighbours.

    Neighbours - unmissable drama

    No, Mac is staying, that was just an example. Sometimes the opening groupings can be a bit odd though. Yes, people do have very weird living arrangements because there's only 6 houses on-street and the Penthouse (which comes and goes), and very occasionally a off-street apartment. You can have...

    Neighbours - unmissable drama

    I assumed he was sent to prison to avoid killing him off? I honestly don't understand why they brought back David/Aaron/Nicolette knowing that they were killing him off. For what? So we can have another decade of Aaron hanging around, and Nicolette isn't even Nicolette. Actually Neighbours...

    Neighbours - unmissable drama

    I think these are all reasonable - since both Sadie and Mac went to school at Erinsborough their ages can probably be worked out from that. Nic might be slightly older, but I think that's the right ball park. And no, she has no job. I'm so relaxed about recasts normally, but I just cannot get...

    Neighbours - unmissable drama

    Since there is no in-universe information, I looked up the actor but his age isn't online, so it's a mystery. Byron has done a law degree prior to his 2022 appearance, and it didn't sound like he'd just graduated, but they can fudge hime slightly. In Neighbours you usually are just in a rough...

    Neighbours - unmissable drama

    Obviously in Erinsborough these things are very hard to judge - but she was born in 2007, and I think she's only meant to be 20. It's Byron's age that's the most mysterious to me.

    Neighbours - unmissable drama

    Chelly developed a ridiculous online following, I suspect mostly from people who watched their clips out of the context of the show and so didn't see what a nightmare Elly was. Neighbours weddings are actually generally drama-free, with there generally being comedy high-jinx rather than...

    Neighbours - unmissable drama

    I know people love them, but I think the opening credits having the cast in does limit the story-telling of the show, especially since they've got so much quicker at updating them. You'll have character where there is no in-show expectation that they'll leave, but they're not in the credits so...

    Neighbours - unmissable drama

    It's supposed to have been the morning of the Terese/Paul's wedding - it was explained at the time that Toadie was remembering it. Gondola-man has always been in the Amazon Freevee opening credits - for some reason Channel Ten use slightly different opening credits, so you're probably just...
