H&a al simpson

Al Simpson, not Doug Willis lol.

Al Simpson was a minor character in Home And Away in 1988 and 1990. He was the father of Sophie Simpson. Al Simpson was revealed to be the man who killed Shane Wilson in 1981 and had framed Donald Fisher for it. Al was one of the most memorable villains of the show. Al was first played for 1 episode by George Leppard in 1988 and in 1990 Al was played by Terence Donovan, who later played Doug Willis in H&A's rival soap Neighbours. Terence is also the father of former Neighbours actor turned singer Jason Donovan.



Al Simpson married a woman named Doris in the 1970s and they adopted baby Bobby Simpson (nee Stewart) of Summer Bay, the illegitimate daughter of Donald Fisher and Morag Bellingham. Al and Doris had a daughter of their own, Sophie Simpson in 1974.

In 1981, Al shot down Shane Wilson and fled the area.

Al committed armed robbery in 1983 and was sent to prison. He was released in 19990.

1988, 1990Edit

Al first turned up in 1988 when Bobby came to visit him in prison to invite him to her wedding to Frank Morgan. He admitted that he was not her biological father.

In January 1990, Al came back to the bay with his biological daughter, Sophie. He tried to frame Donald Fisher for the murder of Shane Wilson 8 years previously. Al blackmailed Don into giving him $10'000. The usually tough Don allowed himself to be pushed around by Simpson for some reason. In the end Al confessed to killing Shane. Al was sent back to prison. His reign of terror was over.

As of 2017, over 26 years after he was sent back to prison, Al may have been released by now but has not returned to Summer Bay so his current whereabouts are unknown.
