FIVE SHOTS - AND ONE'S DEAD!
Five shots... but only two victims, one badly wounded, one
On Sunday night, fans of Channel 7's Sons and Daughters will
see 'who shot who' in last November's cliffhanger episode.
When the series went into recess, a crazed prison escapee,
Joe Parker (played by Danny Adcock) was holding five people
at gunpoint - including two of Sons and Daughters'
best-loved characters, David Palmer and his wife Beryl (Tom
Richards and Leila Hayes).
As the five shots rang out, viewers heard Beryl Palmer scream
out her husband's name.
But as our dramatic picture shows, Beryl is still alive - but
her husband, David, is close to death.
During the non-ratings summer months there was speculation
that the Palmers were being killed off to make way for four
new characters, the O'Brien family.
Last year, Sons and Daughters was one of Channel 7's
most popular programmes.
Its return to the screen was delayed because of the summertime
success of Terry Willesee Tonight.
Willesee took over the Sons and Daughters 7:00pm Monday
to Friday time-slot.
Now Sons and Daughters returns in a new time-slot
of 7:30pm Sunday.
The action moves from an isolated farmhouse, where the shooting
takes place, to the intensive care ward of a big hospital.
David Palmer is one of two patients raced by ambulance from
the farm-house to the hospital.
The other victim? Well that's a secret, but there's a struggle
and a twist in the plot before one of the intensive care monitors
shows that one of the victims is dead.
