The Screen Guide

With the tumultuous arrival of baby Ruby into their busy lives, would-be empty-nesters Dave and Julie Rafter long ago abandoned any dreams of "us time", embracing instead the often confronting, often poignant, often hilarious demands of a household "packed to the rafters" with varying members of their extended family. The addition of Dave's rogue nephew Coby to the mix and the arrival on the scene of his half-brother Matt have further complicated the Rafters' emotional landscape. In Series 6, they face painful times ahead with Julie's father Ted's worsening dementia, and Coby serving time in prison for assault. But it's not all bad news, with son Nathan returning to the family home ahead of his wife and baby son, living with his parents until he finds a job and a place of his own. Changes are afoot in the family business too, with the arrival of new sparky "Buzz".

Screen News


Many options for format rights to Australian shows have been sold abroad in the past five years, but that’s been the end of the road for the majority. Where production has occurred, very few have gone to a second series in the same territory, and generally that has to happen for there to be any chance of real upside.
