Well over twenty years old, the legendary Return To Eden (1983) firmly remains Australia's most successful mini-series to date. It has reached worldwide cult status having attracted over a staggering 300 million viewers worldwide! It has even scored mammoth viewing figures in the U.S.A, a market in which seldom an Australian drama has endured!

The central character in Return To Eden is Stephanie Harper, played beautifully by Rebecca Gilling, who is a middle aged, rather niave and plain looking mining magnates daughter and mother of two. Stephanie Harper is also renowned for being Australia's wealthiest woman.

The story opens on the much publicised wedding of Stephanie Harper and the dashing but considerably charmless, Greg Marsden (James Reyne) a somewhat sleazy and nauseating sports star. It's made clear from the outset that Greg, a man nearly half Stephanies age, was blatantly just after getting his greedy hands on Stephanies fortune.

On the wedding day an obvious attraction between Greg and Stephanies frosty best friend Jilly Stewart (marvelously played by Wendy Hughes) is made apparent. Greg and Stephanie invite Jilly Stewart along on their honeymoon at Stephanies family homestead, Eden, located in the Northern terriotry. It is at Eden that the traitorous Jilly embarks upon a torrid love affair with Greg whilst poor Stephanie remains completely oblivious.

One night on the honeymoon, Stephanie and Jilly join Greg on a boat for a crocodile hunt. Once in a deserted spot, Greg maliciously throws Stephanie straight into the jaws of a crocodile whilst Jilly just simply stands by and watches her supposed best friend fight desperately for her life.

I bought this as I remembered it was good but couldn't remember the plot very well. I started to watch it one evening and couldn't stop watching until it was finished. Why don't they make mini series like this anymore?

Format: DVD
Return to Eden is an overblown "bonkbuster" style romantic thriller in which a wronged woman seeks revenge against the husband and best friend that betrayed her. Stretched over three episodes, each one being 90 minutes long, the story does not rush, although having read a synopsis I was surprised about the pacing of the tale (some spoilers below...)

Episode 1 sees our heroine Stephanie married, cheated on, pushed into a river and the jaws of an awaiting crocodile by her husband and best female friend, assumed dead but washed up and nursed slowly back to something like health by a hermit, visit a plastic surgeon and get transformed into the beautiful "Tara", work her way back into life and society with this new identity until she feels ready to plan her revenge. That's a lot for episode 1, and I was wondering how they would keep up this level of plot propulsion for the remaining two.

Well, they don't really. Episode 2 sees Tara revealed to the world as a beautiful woman, seemingly much younger than she looked as Stephanie, she then makes it as a fashion supermodel and finally she begins a game of cat and mouse with her husband and former friend, both of whom have no idea who she really is. After some careful plotting she summons both of them to her remote family country getaway home to prepare the final trap! This middle episode is probably the weakest and slowest of the three.

Episode 3 sees all the main characters ensconced in the remote holiday home, and Tara begins her revenge. I won't say any more about episode 3, but rest assured that by the end of the final 90 minutes, you do get to see some satisfactory come-uppance

To it's credit, the whole thing is fairly straight, There's no (well, very little) ridiculous ham acting or overblown flouncy bitching.

I remembered loving this series when it was on the TV in 1983 so my friend and I decided to buy this complete series. Really enjoyed watching it again. However, the description on the back of the sleeve is in German and so is the opening of the 1st DVD so I was concerned that I was about to watch this whole series reading English subtitles, but that wasn't the case. The DVD's were in English but with German subtitles. Was also really pleased that at the end of each episode it automatically went to the next one and you weren't subjected to the end of/beginning of each eposide's credits.

My daughter has just give me this box set as a late Mother's day gift, and boy did it bring back memories. From a personal perspective I hoped that I would be able to see the final episode broadcast on television before I went into labour, and I did, and now 28 years later my "baby" has presented me with this set.
I have watched all six episodes this afternoon, and I had forgotten much of the story. Of course, I remembered that Stephanie Harper was mauled by a crocodile after being pushed overboard by her (very new) husband, but I had totally forgotten all about Jilly, her so-called best friend. I vividly remember James Smilie who played the very dashing Dr Dan Marshall, but not the actor who played Mr Stephanie Harper - despite his role being central to the whole story.
Did I enjoy it? Yes, I did. I'm not sure it would sit well with younger viewers, as it's very much of it's time and I had to laugh at the eighties fashions and hairstyles. A real trip down memory lane.
