A Place to Call Home season “more of a thriller”


Fans of A Place to Call Home are in for a mystery ride this season, when the show returns to Showase.

“It’s slightly darker and more of a thriller, in fact. So the audience will really be waiting for the final episode,” Brett Climo (George Bligh) tells TV Tonight.

“Instead of the melodrama it’s more film noir, I suppose. That’s how it felt when we were playing it.”

“The stakes are higher for all of the characters. There’s a lot of tension this series,” Frankie J. Holden (Roy) added.

“People’s lives are threatened,” says Climo.

Season 4 also sees creator Bevan Lee return as writer.

“In Series 3 Bevan wasn’t as involved but he is back at the helm,” says Holden.

“Hopefully Roy finds love. It’s been a few years since Roy’s had relations with a woman. There’s been some sheep.”

Both stars were attending an audience preview at Elsternwick’s Classic Cinema last night, one of several cinema screenings happening in cities and regional areas ahead of the Foxtel premiere.

“It’s great to work on a show that you love making as much as people love watching. That hasn’t happened often to me in 30 years. The power of the audience is amazing,” says Climo.

It’s only a few weeks away so to come this evening means a lot.

“It’s very gratifying that people actually make the effort to come out as opposed to just flicking on a remote,” Holden adds.

“Their fervour is amazing, and greatly appreciated by all the cast.”

A Place to Call Home returns 8:30pm Sunday September 11 on Showcase.
