Brennan and Kate's goodbye

As we reluctantly counted down to Scott McGregor's final scenes on Neighbours, fans of dapper detective Mark Brennan were promised an explosive send-off for the much-loved character – and it didn’t disappoint. We'd already seen him suffer the consequences of blowing the whistle on corrupt Constable Wes Holland, and as the story unfolded, sinister goings-on left Brennan no choice but to leave town for good. Erinsborough’s answer to Jack Bauer made his exit in a special real-time episode, which saw Kate Ramsay given 30 minutes to decide whether or not to join her man in witness protection. It sounded like a no-brainer, until Sophie threw a spanner in the works.
