**Fantastic**
30 November 2017 | by phill_emma-33072See all my reviews

This has been such a great television series, so it was no wonder that the TV movie was such a joy to watch. With more than a couple of surprises along the way. Its beautifully shot and well written as usual, with a fantastic cast of old and new faces. Its always great to see Craig and Nadine in their role's, and along with Joel Tobeck who is fantastic. I would have loved to have seen more of Peggy and Brian too. Looking forward to more of this in the future. Well done to a great team.
