As the sweeping Australian saga returns, four years have passed and nurse Sarah Nordmann (Marta Dusseldorp, Janet King) and her son are safe and happy, despite having to live separately from wealthy patriarch George Bligh (Brett Climo, Snowy River: The McGregor Saga) for political reasons. George's formidable mother, Elizabeth (Noni Hazlehurst, Little Fish), has finally found love and happiness with her new husband, while her granddaughter, Anna (Abby Earl, The Great Mint Swindle), makes waves as a single socialite. But the Blighs' contentment is threatened when George's murderous wife, Regina (Jenni Baird, The 4400), petitions for release from the insane asylum. Set in 1958, this "captivatingly filmed, deeply romantic drama" (The Wall Street Journal) continues to address thorny social issues with intelligence and aplomb. The phenomenal cast also includes Craig Hall (The Doctor Blake Mysteries), Sara Wiseman (Mercy Peak), Frankie J. Holden (Something in the Air), Matt Day (Rake [Australia]), Aaron Pedersen (Jack Irish), and Arianwen Parkes-Lockwood (Underbelly).

As good as every other Acorn production I've seen. I thoroughly enjoyed the characters, setting and plot of this excellent series set in Australia in the 1950's & 1960's. I highly recommend it.

Have enjoyed this series. It is a soap opera (or is it a melodrama ? ) but it is a very well-written one, with such excellent acting that they -- almost -- bring it off. Many story lines get wrapped up by the end of Season 5. I find the characters are becoming less and less interesting. The writers have had a bit of fun: in one scene the characters discuss how unbelievable it is that so many heart-stopping, unlikely tragedies and challenges should have happened to one family. I think I'll pass on Season 6 and be very, very glad I watched Seasons 1 to 4.
