Did You Know?


Before her death in a car accident late in season one, Tom's first wife Nell Croydon was mentioned in almost every episode but was never seen. Afterwards, photographs of the character appeared clearly on Tom's desk showing her with their children (as toddlers) and eventually Nell would appear as a "vision" to Tom in season seven, the only time she was ever seen "in person" onscreen. This was of course a different actress used to provide Nell's voice in the episode of her death (in which her left eye is also briefly seen in a photograph Tom touches before her funeral). Behind the scenes, John Wood thought the idea of Nell being talked of but never seen was hilarious, and called her "non-existant Nell". See more »


There is a one-way street directly opposite The Imperial Hotel (the pub sits at the top of the t-intersection), with buildings on both sides of it (including a large garden/park on the right and the post office tower on the left) and center street parking with parallel parking against both curbs. In various episodes, characters are seen to walk out of the front door of the pub onto a completely different street, with stores all the way along the opposite side and angle parking against both curbs. Similarly, many episodes show a different lane way running along the right side of the pub, with a huge park and no buildings visible across the street or in others a church. See more »


Greg Mason: What film did you see?
Tiffany Lewis: Titanic. It was the fifth time I've seen it. Leonardo's so gorgeous. We all cry at the end. It's so sad.
PJ: Yeah, poor old iceberg. Going for a float and a dirty big ship runs right into him.

Blue Heelers has run it's course
16 January 2006 | by bradles_01See all my reviews

Blue Heelers, is truly one of Australia's most successful television programs. However i feel that the current series is really de-grading to the previous series. What i mean is that it's is just not as good as it once was. I feel that now the show has been axed, it is just too over due. Blue Heelers has definitely run it's course and in my opinion should have ended with the death of Maggie Doyle (Lisa McCune). The reasons for this is because Magggie was Blue Heelers, she was indisputably the most successful cast memeber and really captured the audience and was the 'golden girl' in Mount Thomas. Her sudden death was devastating and should have resulted in the show being canceled.
