Love Child–Season 1, Episode 1

The pilot of Love Child had to be one of the most compelling and packed pilots that I’ve ever seen.

We are introduced to every single major character–Joan, the progressive and optimistic midwife, Frances Bolton, Matron of Stanton House, Dr Patrick McNaughton the charming obstetrician, Shirley Ryan, the mysterious older Stanton House resident and Johnny, Shirley’s draft resisting boyfriend. Last but not least, I can’t forget the main girls–Annie Carmichael, who is about to pop, Martha Tennant, a wisecracking Indigenous resident, Patricia Saunders, the doe-eyed sweet princess and Viv, who kicks off the series. Most of the introductions are subtle, so subtle that you have to read the credits to find out their last names.
