What some actors will do to work!
4 October 1999 | by Bugsy-8See all my reviews

This show was 'semi believable' at the start. But the story lines became so outrageous that it was an insult to even the chronic soapie viewer! At least some actors used their money wisely from this series - good on you Judy Nunn!

Bryan Wiseman - the Actor
