Home and Away's Marcus Graham: 'Harvey is at crisis point'

Australian viewers saw Harvey delight wife Roo at the end of last year, when he turned up in Summer Bay after being feared dead for weeks.

However, it soon becomes clear to Roo (Georgie Parker) and his friends that there is something very wrong with Harvey.

Graham said to TV Week: "I think he's completely freaked out by being deserted at sea, and the near-death experience of it. He was completely isolated for a few months on an island and he has got post-traumatic stress.

"He can't communicate. He doesn't know how to articulate what happened to him, or where to start. He's completely lost.

"Everyone is doing their best to help. But, the more people want him to be fine, the greater the gap is between him and there."

Graham also revealed that Harvey's inability to move on from his traumatic experience could have devastating consequences for his relationship with Roo.

He said: "Harvey is not happy in the Bay because he is not happy with himself. He is at a crisis point. He really just needs to have some therapy.

"It's very confusing for Roo. She's so pleased to have her husband back but she doesn't understand what is going on. She thinks she could be losing her husband all over again.

"It feels like everything is wrong in his life. But, when he finally reveals the extent of his pain, Roo is devastated."
