In the second episode of Harry Sinclair’s late night TV3 micro-series, Liz (Danielle Cormack) and Neil (Joel Tobeck) watch the sun rise from a Karangahape road carpark; but, romantic as this could be, it seems Neil has no more chance of keeping up with Liz than her less than inspiring boyfriend Ant (Ian Hughes). Meanwhile, back at home, Ant is making scones and entertaining some random visitors — larger than life drag queens (and K Road identities) Buckwheat and Bertha. But baking is a step too far for a hungover Liz ... and her mother is on the phone.
A certain part of me is in Liz, but basically it's me playing a character. I wanted to make her as real a person as possible, but it's not me. I was only Liz during the weekends. I was myself five days a week.– Danielle Cormack on her character Liz, The Evening Post, 31 July 1997
