However, Alex did say "I love you" right before they lowered her coffin to the ground. He said it when he put the engagement ring he never got to give her on the cowboy hat that was on top of her coffin. Anyway, before I start crying, this is the conversation they had right before they got together:

Alex: Claire, you, you're the one person I can always be honest around, and you got the most beautiful eyes I've ever seen.
Claire: Alex.

What is the name of the real "Killarney" Farm and where is it located?

comprehensive episode guides said...

Although I don't know the exact address, Killarney is somewhere in Kingsford, an outskirt of Gawler an hour and north of Adelaide. According to Wikipedia that is where the episodes of McLeod's Daughters were shot.

Why did Jessica Napier leave Mcleods Daughters?

comprehensive episode guides said...

No, it wasn't on 1x12. Nick and Claire kissed on episode 1x13 Love of My Life.

As for Jessica Napier leaving McLeod's Daughters. I'm not sure what her reasons were, but I somehow remember reading that she just got tired of the show, and wanted to move on and do other things.

Which actress' did 6 to 10 episodes of Mcleods Daughters?

Unknown said...

I have a question about season 3 episode 11:
After the intro i see Tess with bandage on her arm. But nothing happend in the previous episode (10), or in this one.
Can anyone tell what she did with her arm?

Comprehensive Episode Guides said...

Hi Sjarinda,

I've wondered about that myself, but since no explanation about it was made on the show, I assume that the Bridie Carter simply injured herself and that her injury does not have anything to do with her character.


tso said...

When Tess was asked about her arm, she said she had a run in with the cattle, or a cattle crush. Something like that. I watched it recently, but can't remember the exact wording. That is all that is said.

Comprehensive Episode Guides said...

^I missed that bit about the cattle crush. Thank you so much for pointing that out tso. Truly appreciate it.

What happened with Nick in the 5th season?? I know he didn't died but was he on the plan or did he miss it? Why?


Comprehensive Episode Guides said...

^To be completely honest with you Kitti, I stopped religiously watching McLeod's Daughters soon after Claire died. *gasp* However, I am pretty sure there are McLeod's Daughters fans reading this page who can answer your question. Fans of the show, if you know the answer to Kitti's question, please feel free to post your answer. You might not see your post right away. I had to turn on comment moderation due to the overwhelming volume of spam.

Nick was "Mugged", his luggage,id,money and plane ticket stolen. the thief took nick's place on the plane to south america ( ? fuzzy memory here). the plane crashed and the authorities found nicks id on the dead thief and erroniously pronounced nick dead. He actually was in a mild coma due to getting knocked on the hear and comes back on the scene after a few episodes. My wife has the whole series on DvD and cycles through the set yearly. She loves it!

Is the painting on Tess' bedroom wall of Sophia Loren?

Comprehensive Episode Guides said...

Thank you for your question, Susan Mc. I have to look into it. Do remember the episode where you've noticed the painting? It would help in my research.

Thanks again,

I have been watching MD on Netflix. They have all the episodes. I too was disappointed when it was cancelled in the US after season 3. I've re-watched the first 3 seasons snd niw into season 4. I am thoroughly enjoying picking up where I left off.

Charmed1amd said...

I too was disappointed when MD was cancelled after season 3 in the US. I now found it on Netflix all 224 episodes. I rewatched the first 3 seasons and now am in season 4. I'm so glad I found them again. I do miss Claire though.

Comprehensive Episode Guides said...

Thank you for your comments, Charmed1amd. I am glad that you were able to find all the episodes of McLeod's Daughters. I too miss Claire. I have to admit that her absence made me lose interest on the show even though the episodes after her death were as good as the previous seasons.


DMac said...

Any idea if the creator of McLeod's Daughters will ever write a sequel to the show base on the offspring of the main characters?

Comprehensive Episode Guides said...

Thank you for your question, DMac. I haven't heard of plans for a spin-off, but you can keep abreast of the creator's projects on her official website, Posie Graeme-Evans

In which episode does Nick draw a circle in the dirt around Tess? She was talking about a man invading her private space or something, but I can't remember who the man is. I think it's in one of the earlier seasons but can't find it. Thanks!

Comprehensive Episode Guides said...

^Glad to hear from a fellow fan after so many years. I vaguely remember that scene, but could not find it either. At first I thought it was in the episode "Love of My Life" when Nick and Tess were in the burnt shed, but I watched that scene again and that's not it.

I suppose the "man" Nick was referring to is actually Tess, since she seems to have a penchant for meddling.

Let's see if other viewers of the show remember that scene. Please feel free to shed light on the subject.


Anonymous said...

Nick drew the circle in the dirt around Tess in "Blame it on the moonlight" episode 2x17. This was following a male visitor to the farm who had come for a "working vacation" getting a bit close and Tess asking Nicks opinion.

Comprehensive Episode Guides said...

Wow! Thank you for that information. Moreover, it made me realize that I have not finished writing the Season 2 episode summaries.
