It may be more than a decade since it left our screens, but Ditch Davey hasn’t been able to shake Blue Heelers.
The hit Channel Seven police drama – which also starred John Wood and Martin Sacks – is still spoken about in reverent tones after all this time. So much so, that whispers of a reunion just won’t go away.
And Ditch – the 44-year-old who played Evan Jones for six seasons – reveals exclusively to New Idea that new episodes of the long-running show could be closer than we think.
‘I wouldn’t say no to anything. I absolutely loved doing that show,’ he tells.
‘I get messages most weeks from fans of the show who still want to ask questions about it.
‘People have such fondness for Blue Heelers that I wouldn’t put it off the table. If all the cards fell in the right way – I think it would certainly need a big reboot – but I wouldn’t put it off the table.’
Luckily for fans of the actor, Ditch, who is married to fellow actress Sophia Dunn, will be seen on our screens again as soon as this week.
