Sorry, but it's about a British tv series not shown in America. i've put Spoiler Alert in, but as most of you won't see it.
In the UK we just watched the last in the series of African game tv series Wild At Heart. during the series we've seen mainly Hayley's comedy skills, but she had to do a difficult, but convincing piece of dramatic acting.
it was difficult, because her daughter played by Amanda Holden was killed in a bush fire and instead of the usual falling to bits, Hayley's Caroline (even her grandkids called her that) tried to make sure everyone else was all right. it wasn't until a neighbour, played by Jessie Wallace (who played Kat Slater in Eastenders) said ' What about you Caroline' that the floodgates opened.
the episode was almost about moving on after a tragedy. Hayley was in a difficult personal postition. her son in law Stephen Tomkinson's Danny decides to take his wife's young teenage kids back to England so they could live with their natural father. understandably she decides to go with them for at least a while, as she admited she was a lously mother to her daughter when she was growing up, but by now she was in love with Danny's older partner Anders and she would have liked to stay with him. Danny's 20 something daughter also wanted to come home, but he told her, her place was with her boyfriend in Africa.
at this point we didn't know if the series was going to finish for good or not, if they went home it was the end of the show. as it happens Danny's step son wants to stay, but the real problem is his step daughter who wanted to go back to Bristol. however, she to eventually changes her mind and wants to stay. Vet Danny as a problem to overcome. his wife was killed trying to save his pet Cheeta, who ran into the fire with her in persuit. she died, but then animal survived and was pregnant. he couldn't treat her under the circumstances and passed the responsibilty to his trainee vet and daughter Rosie. however, complications set in and he had no optian but to operate and save both mother and cub. this seemed to change his mind about going. it ended with not only Rosie saying she was getting married, but Hayley just days after her daughter's death announced she was marrying Anders.
i don't know if it will return. i certainly hope so. i wonder if the character, played by Jessie Wallace, who's married to no good cowardly swine of a business man, whom she's asked for a divorce might be a future love interest for Stephen Tompkinson's Danny. here's a link to the show. there are video clips on it, but they appear to be restricted to users. However, you may find iit interesting reading, particulary anything about Hayley
