The Last of the Australians COMPLETE S 1-2
Alwyn Kurts (formerly Insp. Fox in HOMICIDE) displays an uncanny comedic talent as Ted Cook, a noisy bigoted Aussie bloke in his late fifties. A proud and patriotic ex WW2 digger, Ted now finds himself with a career as a lift operator. He’s never without an opinion ‘ professing a particular dislike for the Labour Party, hippies, feminists and every footy team other than his beloved Collingwood.
Dot, his long suffering wife (played by Rosie Sturgess), knows Ted’s bark is worse than his bite and for the most part she is immune to his bluster. Ted also knows Dot has a bite of her own.
