The Newsreader on ABC – A year on from the events of series one, we meet Helen Norville (Anna Torv) and Dale Jennings (Sam Reid), now established as ‘The Golden Couple of News’… To the outside world, they present a glowing image of success and romance… But the truth is more complex.
With the Christmas season in full swing, the News At Six is approached by Geoff (Robert Taylor) and Evelyn Walters’ (Marg Downey) daughter Kay (Philippa Northeast) who offers to sell her story of her addiction to heroin. Lindsay (William McInnes) sees an opportunity to close out the year with a show-stopper and instructs them to get it at all costs.
But when Helen (Anna Torv) and Noelene (Michelle Lim Davidson) actually interview Kay, they are shocked at the depth of her desperation, and her anger at her parents…
