Not yet reviewed.
They came from all walks of life, together, they dreamed of a brighter future.
1969, Kings Cross; the time and place Australia came of age and a new generation broke all the rules. It’s the Summer of Love. Mick Jagger’s in town, Australians are glued to the telecast of the moon landing as American sailors clash on the streets with anti-Vietnam war protestors. Joan Millar, 28, a maverick midwife returns to Australia from swinging London to work at Kings Cross General hospital. Inside the gates of the hospital is one of the busiest maternity wards in the country. Outside the gates, the bright neon lights of Kings Cross beckon promising freedom, sexual revolution, music and mayhem.
Dr Joan Millar (Jessica Marais) is asserting her new position as Junior Resident in the hospital with the staff, patients and fellow doctors alike, when an unexpected return is made by Dr Patrick McNaughton (Jonathan LaPaglia). The girls of Stanton House are on the cusp of freedom from Matron (Mandy McElhinney), with Martha (Miranda Tapsell), Shirley (Ella Scott Lynch) and Annie (Gracie Gilbert) enjoying the life and bright lights of Kings Cross and with Viv (Sophie Hensser) and Patricia (Harriet Dyer) soon to be joining them. Each character’s path to freedom has trials as well as tribulations, but it is the birth of one baby in particular that changes the lives of many. An era of change, season two brings births, deaths and marriages to 1970s Kings Cross.
Set amid the social upheavals of 1970s Kings Cross, the men and women of Love Child will face their greatest challenges and most shocking secrets, as well as war and a surprise wedding. Love Child, Australia’s much-loved drama, returns for a third series, with a stellar cast including Jessica Marais, Jonathan LaPaglia, Matt LeNevez, Mandy McElhinney, Miranda Tapsell, Ella Scott Lynch, Gracie Gilbert, Harriet Dyer, Sophie Hensser, Lincoln Younes and Andy Ryan.
1972. The year of Whitlam and the grooves of funk, free education and immigration, Number 96 and the pill - and a whole lot more. Amidst the flurry of the Queen’s Birthday celebrations, Matron Frances Bolton is taking great pleasure in overseeing the opening of a new Obstetrics wing for Kings Cross General. A heavily pregnant Dr Joan Millar is already butting heads with the unorthodox new head of obstetrics, Dr. Andrew Patterson, a surf-loving ex-Vietnam vet, while three new Stanton House girls bring new drama to the world of Love Child. This series signals the shocking death of one our favourites, and puts Joan in the middle of a devastating cover-up that has her facing every new mother’s worst nightmare.
