17 old Home and Away characters that will make you sick with nostalgia


TODAY MARKS THE 29th anniversary of the greatest imported after-school television programme to ever hit Network 2: Home and Away.

And looking back on some of the characters from the ’90s and ’00s will make you feel things:

1. Like the tragic story of Vinnie Patterson

Survived by VJ and Leah.

2. Donald Fisher was the headmaster you always wanted

3. And Tasha and Robbie worked out in the end (despite the whole cult thing)

4. The Greatest Villain in TV History was Kane Phillips

5. Perhaps only matched by Evil Angie Russell

6. Remember Kirsty Sutherland and her twin Jade claimed to have psychic powers

In fairness, those psychic powers saved their lives when they got trapped down a mine shaft – so who are we to doubt their abilities?

It later turned out that they weren’t actually related though.

7. There was Shannon Reed

8. Who had a brief romance with that floppy-haired doctor Lachlan

9. You’re NOT going to the drop in centre, Dylan

10. Hayley and Noah were the kind of telly couple you just couldn’t get in Ireland

17. And finally, if you needed a lawyer in Summer Bay (probably for defending yourself from being framed – because everyone was framed for a serious crime at least once) you called Morag Bellingham

She’d get you off no bother.
