    • Home & Away seems to have morphed into a ‘medical drama’ recently, although still waiting to hear more on Leah’s diagnosed brain aneurysm from 2015. Roo should remind everyone that she used to be Sister Terri Sullivan for 12 years at All Saints Western General Hospital, and she was also Nurse Lucy Gardner/Tyler at Wandin Valley Clinic! And..John needs to remind everyone that he was Nurse Brendan Jones for most of the 1980s at Wandin Valley Clinic too. Now that the Summer Bay school seems to have vanished from the scene they can gradually morph into a medical drama full-time.
