not planed. TV Show was canceled.
Dr. Kate McDonald is married to the small farming community of Paringa, where she's been the vet for 15 years. For most of that time she's been hiding a secret, and as a result, refuses to allow anyone to get close to her. Needless to say, she has problems keeping an assistant, something she desperately needs. Kate's newest assistant, Dr. Jill Blake, is 24 and keen to widen her veterinary experience with farm animals. But it doesn't take her long to realise that she's made a huge mistake in leaving the city for Paringa. Her boss is the rudest person she's ever met and Paringa is not exactly the idyllic country town of her dreams. Somehow, these two opinionated women must find a way to come to terms with each other and the difficulties they encounter in supporting the failing district and Kate's overstretched veterinary practice.
Enthusiastic young vet Jill Blake arrives in the dusty one-horse town of Paringa to find only a curt note directing her to her spartan new home. When her new boss, the notoriously "difficult" Kate McDonald, turns up, her attitude is as dry as the drought-stricken landscape.
Jill is shocked by the austerity of life in the drought stricken area, and is sensitive to every sign of distress and decline. From the bruise on Gail Klein's cheek to Kate's attempt to exclude her from Tom Huppatz's father's funeral, Jill senses there is much amiss in this place, and it goes far beyond the lack of rain.
Achmed Aziz, an Iraqi agronomist, arrives on a study tour and Kate fears he will submit a report on the condition of the local sheep. Having rebuffed Jill's attempts to empathise with her, Kate then forces her to co-operate with a plan to cover up the sheep problem until the drought breaks, after which it will be irrelevant.
Kate is injured in a cattle yard accident, forcing Jill to run the practice on her own. It seems the order of the world has been restored when Jill gets to do some refreshingly routine vet work and achieves results, mostly without Kate's help or interference. But her world is thrown off kilter again when she and Kate perform highly illegal life-saving surgery on Larry Riley.
With Jill almost reconciled to the idea of an imperfect future with Kate, the past catches up with her when her father and brother, then Shane, all descend on them for an impromptu country lunch.
Relieved of the burden of her secret, Kate appears to have lost the will to challenge the area's destiny.
