When the recurring character of Alan Fisher (Simon Kay) was killed-off, the producers later regretted their decision, due to a fan backlash. Several ideas were penned where the actor could make a believable return, including one where a movie was made of Alan's novel, "The Crest of a Wave", which was published posthumously, and Simon would show up as another character "with a mustache" to audition for the lead, stunning other cast members with his resemblance to the dead Alan. These ideas however never came to fruition, as new permanent characters were being introduced at the same time. See more »
Throughout the years, numerous characters have referred to "the city" (meaning Sydney) as being either "up" or "down" from Summer Bay. The general consensus, however, is that Summer Bay is north of Sydney (approximately 100km away), as is the real-life filming location. See more »
I think H&A is a great show. You have to appreciate the history to enjoy the show. The show has a lot of history and helps budding young actors get started. Kate Richie is one of the best actors, probably because she was there from the start and we (the viewers) were able to see her grow up. The show is obviously a little exaggerated I mean our ordinary life is not as adventurous but I think that's what makes us (the viewers) watch it. Thanks for a teriffic show, I will always watch it.
