Wanted Down Under: Parker Family (BBC Two Tuesday 31 October 2023)



Wanted Down Under

Wanted Down Under: Parker Family airs Tuesday 31 October 2023 on BBC Two.

What is this episode about

Stephen Parker, a man from landlocked Birmingham, is an extremely unlikely surfer dude. But he’s always wanted to move to Australia and catch the ideal wave. But his Bulgarian-born wife Marta has a different interpretation. She has made a new life for herself and her family in the United Kingdom, and she has no intention of leaving.

The Parkers are Stephen, Marta, and baby William. Six years ago, they met at the wedding of a mutual friend and immediately fell in love with each other. Marta, an aspiring actress from Bulgaria, uprooted her life and followed Stephen to the United Kingdom. Leaving her beloved mother was especially difficult after the death of her father, but she did it for Stephen.

Although it took some time, the newlyweds have finally found their footing in the UK, where they have been living happily since the birth of their son William a year ago. Now, however, Stephen has asked Marta to relocate once again—this time to Australia. For thirty years, this has been his ultimate goal. He had a wonderful upbringing in Birmingham, but the lack of a coastline was always a bummer, so when he was old enough he headed for the coast and picked up surfing. However, his job in London left him with little free time to pursue his interest. Stephen knew he had to make a change after Marta went into premature labour and he was unable to reach her in time to assist. He’s taking a break from work so he can spend more time with his family, but the ocean is calling him back.


Even Marta seems to have changed her mind. Now that her mother has passed away, she has no living relatives in Bulgaria and is considering leaving. However, she has developed strong bonds with Stephen’s family, and separating William from them would be incredibly difficult on his psyche.

Stephen, however, is confident in his ability to convince her that the gamble is worthwhile. The family gets a taste of what life would be like in Australia with a weeklong vacation on the coast near Melbourne.
