  1. Thanks David. Good cast.

    With all these Aussie dramas starting production I am concerned they may all start airing at the same time later in the year…fingers crossed the 7 and 10 dramas will not air on the same night….hopefully 7 sticks with Tuesday and 10 holds its traditional Wednesday night.

    I wonder when Winners and Losers will air and Love Child, which I am sure are just sitting on someone’s desk…
