The Captain will certainly leave his mark on Ramsay Street."[4]

Troy is the ex-boyfriend of Sonya Mitchell (Eve Morey) and the biological father of her son, Callum Jones (Morgan Baker).[8] Holy Soap said that not everyone in Erinsborough will be ready to welcome Troy and they described him as a "sexy soldier, who's guaranteed to see plenty of heavy combat during his time on the Street."[4] Brummer told TV Week that Troy is "involved in Sonya's dark past" and that he comes to Erinsborough to work out something with Sonya.[5] When asked what kind of man Troy is, Brummer said that he has been through many changes since his relationship with Sonya and that he stands up for himself.[8] Troy will also "turn like a cut snake if he's crossed."[8] Of Troy's relationship with Sonya, Brummer revealed "I think he would have been more dedicated to Sonya and their relationship in the past if he'd known that she decided to keep their baby. He has never really let go of Sonya. For whatever reason they finally decided to break up and neither one of them was in a great place at the time. Then he left to join the army."[8] Troy arrives in Ramsay Street and Brummer explained Troy is not "intentionally stirring up trouble, but there are aspects of his personality that will cause some problems."[5] He added that his character will cause waves between Sonya and her current boyfriend Toadfish Rebecchi (Ryan Moloney).[5] Toadie sees Troy as a threat because he is Callum's real father.[8] Moloney told Holy Soap that the way Toadie and Tory react to one another is like "a couple of bulls eyeing off each other, waiting to see who charges first."[9] He added that he would like to see Brummer channel Ray Meagher and slip some of his mannerisms into the scripts.[9]

Of Rhys, Barber said "I love the character, he is very determined and focused which gets him into trouble."[25] Barber explained Rhys is good at separating his work life from his home life and can switch from one to the other easily.

He wants him to have chemotherapy, but Karl tells Susan it will only prolong Jim's suffering, not save his life. Susan tells that to Jim, which Rhys doesn't like."[26] In July 2011, Rhys meets Kate Ramsay (Ashleigh Brewer) and after a "big night out", they end up having a one-night stand.[27] Brewer said Kate and Rhys have different attitudes to what happened and she explained "Rhys is a bit of a player, so it's not a big deal to him.

However, Kate wakes up in Rhys' apartment the next morning and Rhys gives her his number. He later bumps into Kate at Harold's Store, where she tells him that nothing can happen between them.

She's a bit of trouble and there is certainly a point-of-difference with this character. It would be wonderful to continue."[32]

Michelle is one of Jade Mitchell's (Gemma Pranita) clients and she happens to be looking for somewhere to live.[32] She moves in with Jade and Kyle Canning (Chris Milligan) at Number 26 and quickly becomes known as the "housemate from hell."[29] Le said that Michelle seems fine at first, but cracks in her persona begin appearing and she "turns things upside down for her flatmates."[32] The show's official website said Michelle will "upset Jade's equilibrium" as she is just a "little bit annoying."[33] Le explained that Michelle means well, but she rubs people up the wrong way without realising and she jumps into situations without thinking about the consequences.[32] Le told the official website "To describe her as annoying is an understatement, and she is certainly one of a kind. However, despite the madness, she has a heart of gold."[29] Asked whether Michelle is similar to other characters she has played before, Le said she is, but unlike them, Michelle has a dark edge, which the actress found fun to play.[32] Le added that the writers have done "an amazing job" with Michelle and the costume department have made Michelle very colourful.[32] Michelle becomes "infatuated" with Lucas Fitzgerald (Scott Major), who is friends with Jade and Kyle.[29][32] Her crush gets out of hand and Le said Michelle "knows what she wants she doesn't let go and doesn't take no for answer." The actress added that Michelle has selective hearing and she blocks out what she does not want to hear.[32] Caroline Fitton of the Daily Mail branded Michelle an "irritating flatmate" and pointed out Lucas had found her "almost as clingy as her clothes."[34]

During a session with her personal trainer, Jade Mitchell, Michelle reveals that she has to move out of her home because her roommate is going overseas and she cannot find anyone to move in that she gets along with.

She later calms down and Jade tells her she and Kyle want her to move out. Michelle tells them her name is on the lease and she is not going anywhere. Kyle and Jade offer Michelle her rent money back to leave, but she refuses to take it. Michelle sees Jade has brought a cat into the house and tells her she is allergic and that keeping pets is in breach of the lease. Michelle is suspicious when a property inspector suddenly comes to look at the house.

Noah Parkin, played by Orpheus Pledger, made his first on-screen appearance on 27 July 2011.[35] The character and Pledger's casting was announced on 25 May 2011.[35] The actor began filming his first scenes opposite Kaiya Jones, a week before the casting annnoncement.[35] Pledger revealed his agent had told him about an upcoming role in Neighbours and asked him to read through Noah's character notes.[36] Pledger told Digital Spy, "I thought he was a really cool character and someone I'd really like to play. I was then asked to come in for a test with the Neighbours casting director, then there was a recall and then I was given the role!"[36] Pledger has a six month contract with the show.[36] Of Noah and Pledger's casting, executive producer, Susan Bower said "We are very excited about Noah, he is certainly different from our regular characters and Orpheus fits the role perfectly."[35] Bower promised that viewers will love Noah's storyline.[35]

Pledger revealed the Neighbours producers first described Noah as "a cool, guitar-playing dude", which the actor liked.[36] Noah is a senior student at Erinsborough High and was described by the Neighbours official website as being a "free-spirited teen who will set some hearts on fire."[35] Noah is the son of a minister and has good intentions. Pledger explained that he is a nice person with a good heart.[37][38] Noah stays in his own bubble and does not try to interact with anyone as he can manage on his own.[38] He is not shy, but does not seek popularity.[36] Of Noah's quiet introduction to the show, Pledger explained "It's different from the introduction of other characters and I like it because it makes the audience want to learn more about him. Also, you think he is going in one direction because his appearances are so subtle, and then it shifts dramatically..."[36] The official UK Neighbours website reported Noah would get close to one particular Erinsborough local and they should prepare for "heartbreak and havoc."[39] Noah connects with Sophie Ramsay (Jones) as they are both into music and playing the guitar. Pledger said there is physical attraction and Sophie is just a friend, who Noah can help.[36] However, Sophie develops a crush on Noah, which he does not notice.[38] Instead Noah falls for her older sister, Kate (Ashleigh Brewer).[38] Pledger told TV Week that Noah thinks Kate is beautiful and he tries to be around her because she is nice to him.[38] The actor later expanded on this, saying Kate is "one of the few that were really nice to him from the start - she didn't judge him. He's a pretty deep thinker so he reads her natural friendliness as something more than what it is."[36] Noah takes Kate's friendly gestures the wrong way and Pledger added Noah sees an opportunity to act on his feelings and the consequences are drastic.[38][36] Of Noah, Dianne Butler of the Herald Sun said "I love a stalker as much as the next girl, and the way he told those others he had a "present for his girlfriend" and, I don't know, that beanie ... pull it down and cut eye holes in it and suddenly Erinsborough's got a rapist/killer/kidnapper/pervert of whatever threat level."[40] Butler also thought Noah may spend the next four years growing dreadlocks as he seems to have bought the hat to accommodate them.[40]

Noah begins his first day of Erinsborough High and is introduced to his class by Michael Williams (Sandy Winton). During a Maths lesson, Natasha Williams (Valentina Novakovic) tries to get Noah's attention, but he just shows her a cartoon he has been drawing of their teacher. Natasha compliments it, but Noah does not say anything and throws it in the bin when the class ends. Sophie Ramsay (Kaiya Jones) finds Noah playing the guitar and she asks him about the piece he is playing. Noah tells her it does not have a name and that he wrote it. Noah finds Sophie practising the guitar and he gives her some tips on the chords. Noah offers to tune Sophie's guitar and he lets her play his one. He tells her he has been playing the guitar since he was seven and that his parents support him. Sophie's sister, Kate, introduces herself to Noah and thanks him for helping Sophie out. She later asks Noah if he will give Sophie some guitar lessons. During a practice session, Noah and Sophie manage to blow an outlet and the whole street loses power. Noah gives Sophie a journal, so she can write down some songs and he goes to Harold's Store. Kate praises Noah's sketches and he asks her to tutor him in history. Sophie organises a gig for Noah at the Men's Shed and Kate tells him that Sophie has a crush on him. Noah gets involved in the local History Wall project, which is being overseen by Kate.

Andrew Robinson (Jordan Smith) finds a song Noah wrote and accuses him of having a crush on Kate. Kate talks to Noah, but he insists he actually has a crush on Summer Hoyland (Jordy Lucas), which Kate believes. Noah learns about Kate's ex-boyfriend and he talks to her about past relationships. Noah finds an upset Kate at the History Wall and he is delighted when she kisses him. Kate later tells Noah the kiss was a mistake. Noah sends Kate a drawing and Kate tells him to back off. Kate asks Noah to meet her and she confronts him about stealing her work apron from her room. Noah denies taking the apron. Noah spots Kate putting something in his guitar case and he tells Natasha and Chris the gift is from his girlfriend.

Occupation Nurse

Aidan Foster, played by former Home and Away actor Bobby Morley, made his first on-screen appearance on 19 August 2011.[41] Aidan was introduced as a love interest for Chris Pappas (James Mason).[42] The casting and character was announced on 18 June 2011. Morley has a six month contract with Neighbours, but it could be extended.[42]

Aidan is a male nurse and he and Chris will form the show's first gay couple.[42] Of his Aidan, Morley told the Herald Sun, "I don't see it as a big deal that the character is gay. It certainly doesn't define him and what the writers have planned is really interesting and authentic."[42] Morley added that the fact his character is gay did not make a different to him joining Neighbours.[42] Executive producer Susan Bower said the storyline was a "natural progression" for Chris and that at some stage he needed to meet someone.[42] She added viewers will find the storyline compelling.[42] Bower later told Digital Spy that Chris and Aidan's romance will be handled in a sensitive way and it may not be a full-on relationship.[43] She explained, "The character that Bob is playing is older and further down the track with his relationship testing, so it will be a relationship story rather than a gay male romance."[43] Bower also added that she had seen some letters from viewers who are not happy with the upcoming storyline and she mentioned one letter surprised her when it mentioned Aidan's job was a cliché.[43]

In November 2011, Anthony D. Langford of AfterElton said he liked Aidan from the scenes he had seen.[44] Langford thought Aidan seemed like "a funny, interesting guy" and he was pleased with how Neighbours handled the reveal that he was gay, saying "I'm so glad they didn't drag it out and keep it like it was some big secret, but revealed it matter of fact and with some humor. But then, Aiden is already out and clearly comfortable with himself and the show has already done the coming out drama with Chris, so there's no need to repeat it."[44] Langford went on to say he was looking forward to Aidan interacting with Chris, but thought he seemed a little too old for the teenager.[44]

Michael Williams (Sandy Winton) asks Aidan how his daughter, Natasha (Valentina Novakovic), is after her accident. Aidan tells him Natasha is fine, but she had a big knock to her head, which she will be feeling for a while. He praises her friends for knowing CPR. Aidan catches Susan Kennedy (Jackie Woodburne) trying to take Jim Dolan (Scott Parmeter) out of the hospital and he tells her Jim is far too sick to leave his bed. Susan tells Aidan that Jim would like some fresh air and Aidan helps Jim into a wheelchair. Aidan attends a barbeque at his colleague, Rhys Lawson's (Ben Barber) house. He meets and befriends Jade Mitchell (Gemma Pranita).

Martin Chambers, played by John Wood, made his first on-screen appearance on 1 September 2011.[45][46] The character and casting was announced on 3 June 2011 and Wood began filming his first scenes later that month.[45][47] When asked how he felt about joining Neighbours, Wood revealed that he had not been expecting it, but it had been a pleasant surprise.[47] He told the Herald Sun, he accepted the small continuing role of Martin, as it sounded good and he had not been on commercial television for a long time or on Neighbours before.[48] He explained, "A day a week, that is not going to kill me and it reminds everyone I am still alive."[48] Executive producer Susan Bower said she was "thrilled" to welcome Wood to the cast and said his storyline would be "great."[45]

Of Martin, Wood told TV Week: "He's the head of surgery at Erinsborough Hospital. He's very focused and ambitious and doesn't suffer fools – so he could be a good bloke or a villain, depending on what he thinks of you."[49] The actor later told the official UK Neighbours website that Martin is intimidating, has strong opinions and is not easily swayed.[47] Digital Spy reported that Martin is strict and has a reputation for taking his work very seriously.[45] Wood revealed that he is not good with blood or other people's health problems, but hoped to be able to act around it. He also expected the medical jargon to include some "challenging pronunciations."[47] Script producer, Emma Gordon, told the The West Australian that viewers can expect a different side to Wood, saying "John was a bit worried when he came in and asked if he actually had to do any surgery but I told him most of his stories take place on the golf course or in the bar. We certainly keep that sense of larrikin about him, even though he is very senior, and all the things that people love about John he won't help but bring to the character."[50] Martin will join Karl Kennedy (Alan Fletcher) and Rhys Lawson (Ben Barber), who is just settling in at the hospital. During an interview with TV Week, Wood said Martin has known Karl for a long time, but he has never been seen before. Wood said "Presumably he's been beavering away in the hospital and has finally come up for air."[51] Wood said the three doctors initially get along, but that does not last long and the story starts to become interesting.[45][47] Wood explained "Rhys has an agenda which involves my character. Karl Kennedy also gets involved, and he and Chambers don't see eye to eye on some issues mainly involving Rhys so plenty of conflict."[47] Rhys tries to get into Martin's good books in order to become a surgeon and this makes Karl feel like he is being sidelined.[51] Wood explained Martin's main reason for being in Neighbours is to be a catalyst between Karl and Rhys. The actor added "I suspect that Rhys is going to show Dr Chambers up by saving someone that Martin is losing on the operating table."[51]

Martin arranges a round of golf with Adrian Pearce (Christopher Waters) and Karl Kennedy. Karl invites Rhys Lawson along and he introduces him to Martin. Martin is impressed with Rhys's golfing ability and Rhys reveals he is a fan. Martin tells Rhys they can talk about his early work sometime off course. Martin chats to Karl about his wife, Susan (Jackie Woodburne), and their upcoming holiday. Martin questions Rhys on where he is going in the hospital and Rhys reveals he wants to become a surgeon. Martin invites him to observe him. Martin organises another round of golf with Rhys. They meet Karl and his son, Malcolm (Benjamin McNair), and decide to play together.

Lorraine Dowski, played by former Prisoner actress Zoe Bertram, made her first on screen appearance on 23 September 2011.[52] The character and Bertram's casting was announced on 25 July 2011.[52] Bertram had a four week guest stint as Lorraine and most of her scenes saw her appear opposite Stefan Dennis.[52] Lorraine is a Polish cleaner, who is hired by Dennis' character, Paul Robinson. The character has been described as being "less than diplomatic" and Bertram had to perfect a distinct Polish accent for the part.[52] Of playing her character, Bertram said "She certainly isn't like any of the characters I've played before and the accent was fun."[52] Cameron Adams of the Herald Sun believed Lorraine's accent sounded Russian and fake.[53] He added "not sure why Paul hasn't had a cleaner before now, and hopefully the writers have something in mind here because it all seems a little too random. But in between all her laid-on-thick accent work, she gives Paul some knowledge to use as fuel in his goal to fight City Hall -- or at least a planned new shopping centre to which he objects."[53]

Rhys Lawson (Ben Barber) hires Lorraine to clean Number 26 and he recommends her services to Paul Robinson. Lorraine meets with Paul at Charlie's bar to discuss his cleaning needs. Paul puts Lorraine's discretion to the test and she tells him she is not nosey. Paul then hires Lorraine. She tells him that she is involved in the History Wall project and has learnt a lot about Erinsborough. She mentions the old newspaper office is very old and Paul has it preserved. Lorraine accidentally uses Jade Mitchell's (Gemma Pranita) costume skirt as a cleaning cloth and Jade demands she make her a new one. Lorraine does not like Jade's attitude, but she makes the skirt. Jade then sacks Lorraine. When Lorraine goes to the Erinsborough News office to fetch Paul's house keys, she reveals she also cleans for Ajay Kapoor (Sachin Joab). Paul takes Lorraine for coffee and tells her he wants to give her a new job as a reporter. He explains the council have been taking bribes to push through a new development and he suspects Ajay is involved. Lorraine tells Paul she will not spy on her employer, but Paul insists on giving her a phone with a camera. Ajay comes to the Erinsborough News office with Lorraine and gives Paul's phone back. Lorraine informs Paul she quits and Paul tells her he was going to fire her anyway.

This worries Michael and he is scared about what Emilia will tell Natasha.[60] Stafford told TV Week there is a history between Emilia and Michael that makes it difficult for them to get along.[61] She explained "If they dredge up those memories, it'd open a huge can of worms - something they're both reluctant to do. There's an understanding that certain things should be kept until a later date - if not forever."[61] The actress added Emilia is happy when she meets Natasha again and she fills a hole in her life.[61]

Emilia is working at a fashion shoot, when she notices Natasha Williams and mistakes her for one of the models. She tells her to take a seat, but then realises Natasha is not a model. Natasha, using the name Christine, tells her she had an appointment at her salon, but it was cancelled and she would really like Emilia to do her hair and make up.

She realises Natasha is her sister, Helena's daughter. Emilia goes to Erinsborough and observes Natasha with her friends. Emilia turns up at Erinsborough High and she and Natasha go to Charlie's to talk. Natasha asks Emilia about Helena and tells her Michael does not mention her mother. Emilia learns Michael has lied to Natasha about how her sister died. Emilia leaves a birthday gift for Natasha on her doorstep, as she goes to leave, Emilia's car breaks down. Lucas Fitzgerald (Scott Major) spots her and takes the car to his garage to fix. When she finds out Lucas is friends with Michael, Emilia quickly leaves. Emilia calls Lucas when she realises she left her boot in his garage. Emilia meets Lucas in Charlie's bar to collect her boot. Lucas later calls Emilia for an appointment and she comes to his home and waxes his chest. Shortly after leaving Lucas' house, Michael appears and tells her to stay away from Natasha. Emilia tells him he cannot keep the truth about Helena from Natasha forever. Michael gives Natasha's present back to Emilia and tells her to go. Emilia goes to Erinsborough High to see Natasha, but Michael spots her first. They leave and talk about Natasha and Helena. Michael explains to Emilia that Natasha would not be able to handle the fact he has been lying to her.

Dane Canning, played by Luke Pegler, made his first on screen appearance on 19 October 2011.[62][63] The character and Pegler's casting was announced on 16 August 2011 and the actor began filming his first scenes on the same day.[63][64] Peglar had a six week contract with the show.[64] He was cast after Chris Milligan injured himself while playing football and had to take a break from filming.[63] Of his Peglar's casting, executive producer Susan Bower said "The show must go on. The beauty of Neighbours is we're about families, so we can pull in a cousin or sibling in these very unusual situations."[64] Pegler wrapped his guest stint on 23 September 2011.[65]

Dane is Kyle Canning's (Milligan) cousin. He arrives in Ramsay Street to take over Kyle's room at Number 26, while Kyle visits his sick mother.[63] Of this, Daniel Kilkelly of Digital Spy reported, "Dane's sudden appearance will allow minimum disruption to scripts as he takes over Kyle's role in a plot that was already being filmed."[63] Dane's trademark hair style sees him sporting "striking blond tips."[66] Of his character's hair style, Pegler told Channel 5, "Yeah, they definitely scream, 'Look at me, dude!' which is not quite the attention I'm after."[65] Pegler said he would be making an appointment with a hairdresser to get rid of the blond tips and added he would not miss them.[65] Pegler explained Dane has "Canning DNA" and is just as oblivious to things around him as Kyle.[67] The actor added Dane would find himself in the middle of some awkward situations.[67]

Dane moves into Number 26 and meets Jade Mitchell (Gemma Pranita). Dane explains Kyle has gone to Frankston to care for his mother, who has contracted malaria, and they have done a house swap, so Dane can take care of Kyle's business. Jade takes Dane to Harold's Store for coffee and he meets Summer Hoyland (Jordy Lucas) and Jade's sister, Sonya (Eve Morey). Dane tells Sonya he knows who she is and Kyle has filled him in about the shopping development and the threat it poses to his business. Dane speaks to Tony Winstone (Luke Lennox) about the development and Tony tells him the project was pushed through by the council quicker than normal because they were bribed. Dane seeks out Paul Robinson (Stefan Dennis) and tells him what Tony said. Dane also tells Summer, who decides to run the story on her radio show. Paul tells Dane the story is unfounded, but he should let Summer go ahead with the broadcast. Dane goes to PirateNet and gives Summer the option of pulling the story, but she declines. Dane then speaks to Andrew Robinson (Jordan Smith) and asks him to talk to Paul, as he does not want Summer to get into trouble if the story is just a rumour. Andrew thanks Dane for giving Summer the story. Summer later goes to see Dane and asks him for the name of the guy he spoke to. Dane is initially reluctant to tell her, but eventually reveals the guy's name was Tony.

Rhys Lawson (Ben Barber) buys a barbeque for the house and he, Dane and Jade throw a party for their friends and neighbours. A few days later, Rhys asks Dane and Jade to leave the house, so he can invite some surgeons and senior doctors over for a party. Rhys later calls Dane and explains there is a rat in the barbeque. Dane returns and removes the rat. Rhys takes Dane for a drink at Charlies to thank him and they try to pick up a couple of women, by pretending they are both doctors.
