1990 was Home And Away's 3rd year in production. This year was the Lucini, Mitchell, Simpson and Jackson era. Also the end of an old era as Tom Fletcher died at the wheel and Pippa Fletcher met Michael Ross later in the year.
This year saw new families arrive such as the Simpsons and the Lucini's kickstarting a new era for the show was several of the originals bowed out. Apart from stalwart Tom Fletcher, other originals to leave this year was the cheeky double act Lance Smart and Martin Dibble, bringing down the curtain on their double act.
