Mother and Son on ABC TV – After Maggie (Denise Scott) causes a fire in the family kitchen, Arthur (Matt Okine) tries to put her in an aged-care home so he can move forward with his own life, worry-free. Arthur’s sister Robbie (Angela Nica Sullen) attempts to sell the family home to make some cash.
Following a break-up from his long-suffering girlfriend Dee (Andrea Demetriades), Arthur puts his future on hold to move back home with his widowed mother, Maggie (Denise Scott).
Arthur (Matt Okine) and older sister Robbie (Angela Nica Sullen) – arguably ‘the favourite’ – attempt to care for Maggie, who although she might have burnt down the kitchen, still run circles around her children.
