Toadie and Karl come to London

/ 3 March 2017

It’s been 10 years since the residents of Ramsay Street last visited British shores – when Karl and Susan Kennedy rekindled their romance and renewed their vows on the Thames. On Monday March 20th the Channel 5 soap returns to the UK, with London providing an iconic backdrop to a series of gripping episodes guaranteed have fans on the edge of their seats.

Willow and the woman Toadie still thinks is Dee have packed up and left Erinsborough, taking with them the cheque for Willow’s schooling. With a little help from Susan and an emotional call from Willow, Toadie (Ryan Moloney) works out that the pair are headed to London. Having gained reluctant permission from Sonya, he heads to the UK in pursuit, spending his days trying to track them down. Visiting key London landmarks that appear in Willow’s Instagram posts, Toadie eventually locates his daughter, explains he wants her to come back to Ramsay St and offers to speak to her mother to square it with her. But when “Dee” turns up hot on the heels of a disastrous Skype call Toadie has with Sonya, sparks fly…the consequences of which will impact the Ramsay Street residents over the course of the following weeks and months.

The London episodes also feature Karl Kennedy (Alan Fletcher), who is convinced by wife Susan to head over to London to help his friend see sense and return to his heavily pregnant wife. But when Karl arrives in the UK, he realises he needs to provide far more help than he was anticipating.

The scenes were filmed in London in October 2016 and January 2017 using the Capital City’s iconic landmarks as an additional character to the drama. The production team were keen to feature locations which include Buckingham Palace, The Houses of Parliament, Trafalgar Square, Piccadilly Circus and the London Eye, with supplementary scenes filmed in Melbourne.
