TBTG: Home and Away’s Alf never to retire, sez he

Thursday, May 29th, 2014

The Radio Times interviewed Ray Meagher, aka Alf Stewart and found out that he has no intention of going anywhere (ya flamin’ galah). Good news for a rainy Thursday!

This might ease the pain…a small bit

Dear SummerBayWatcher,

No doubt you are feeling the pain now that “Home and Away” is off our screens. May I suggest that you watch “Fade Street” on the RTE Player. There’s an outstanding character called Paul. He’s no Alf Stewart but he’s a helluva man all the same.


Alf got himself a Sheila!

Ray Meagher got married, dudes.  Will that put an end to the rumours or wha’?

Changed the Bay FOREVER

Friday, February 12th, 2010

Ha, that was gas.  A documentary within a soap.  Who was the hard-bitten and slightly dashing journo who landed in Summer Bay in the aftermath of THE RIOT?  His boss was fairly bossy.  I thought his first cut of the doco (they must be called docos in Oz?) was grand.

Anyway, apparently the Bay is now forever changed because a few residents are pissed off due to the riots and the torching of the diner.  I dare say they’ll be over it in a few episodes. That’s the way things are done down Summer Bay way.  Or will that be the change?  That the SB time warp has been perpetually altered and now trauma recovery times, pregnancies and marriages will actually be a decent length?

Alf Stewart is Summer Bay.  That’s what the journo said.  He worked hard to get Alf’s slant on things and by Irwin did he get it.  Alf let rip, condemning flamin’ hoons and admitting that his trust in his fellow Aussies had been dashed.

Leah’s in bits too.  Ok, her fella was bashed and her workplace destroyed but she seems to have lost the will to live.  Maybe she’s just missing Veej.
