Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The two-part, two-hour Australian miniseries Alice to Nowhere was adapted by David Boutland from the suspense novel by Evan Green. Set in 1954, the story focused on the aftermath of a botched attempt to steal the crown jewels. Rosey Jones starred as Nurse Barbara Dean, who, unaware that a valuable necklace has been planted on her, is pursued into the Australian outback by a pair of sadistic criminals named Johnny Parson (John Waters) and Frog Gardiner (Esben Storm). As the two crooks grow more evil and irredeemable with each passing day, they leave a trail of terror and death behind them -- with even more horror still to come for the hapless heroine. Debuting June 30, 1986, Alice to Nowhere was co-produced by 10 Network and Crawford Productions.
