Neighbours' police detective Mark Brennan will depart the soap in dramatic circumstances, executive producer Susan Bower has promised.

The popular character will soon bow out from the Ramsay Street serial after less than a year as Scott McGregor has decided to leave the role.

As revealed earlier this month, Brennan makes his departure in a special real-time episode of Neighbours which focuses entirely on a 30-minute timeframe.

"A beloved character was leaving us. We didn't want him to go out with a whimper. We wanted him to go out with a bang," Bower told TV Week of the special episode.

The instalment in question sees Brennan tell on-off partner Kate Ramsay, played by Ashleigh Brewer, that he is going into witness protection due to his involvement in a police corruption investigation.

After hearing the news, Kate has just 30 minutes to decide whether she wants to leave with Brennan or stay behind in Erinsborough.

Bower said: "[The episode] features about half a dozen people, but it's mainly about just two - Mark and Kate."

The soap's boss added that McGregor and Brewer were both "terribly excited" to be involved in the episode.
