Tonight fans of A Place to Call Home will hear from cast members in Foxtel’s An Audience with the Cast of a Place to Call Home.
The special features most of the cast interviewed by Simon Burke, before an audience including many of the Save A Place to Call Home campaign.
Marta Dusseldorp tells them Channel Seven printed out copies of all of their online pleas, for the series it now produces for Foxtel.
Last weekend SoHo aired the “true” ending for season two, in which new cliffhangers saw George shot -presumably by either Rene or Regina- while Anna reads a letter about the truth of Olivia and James’ son (in the original ending she burned the same letter, unread).
What is rare in Australian television of course is reviving a series that everybody had walked away from.
Is it possible to successfully revive a show after the costumes, props and vehicles have been sold off and the cast have all been released?
Having seen episode 1 of Season Three, the answer is unequivocally, yes. All cast members are back and the show looks like it has never left our screens.
That indirectly raises questions about the possibility of reviving Offspring. APTCH proves that it is possible, although it’s a very tall order. Congrats to all involved, and the fans for making it a reality.
An Audience with the Cast of a Place to Call Home airs 7:30pm tonight on SoHo.
A Place to Call Home returns 8:30pm Sunday September 27th on SoHo.
