The fifth season of the long-running Australian medical drama All Saints began airing on 5 February 2002 and concluded on 26 November 2002 with a total of 43 episodes.

Plot[edit]

2002 begins with a bang as an earthquake rips through Sydney, causing Von to fracture her arm and a train derailment. When Ben, Rebecca and Scott arrive at the scene, they are horrified to discover Bron and Lyle among the victims.

Nelson reveals that he is an alcoholic to one of his patients before attending Alcoholics Anonymous meetings while Paula lets drop that she has a son. Rumours circle around Ward 17 that Von is sleeping with one of her patients, and later that both Terri & Mitch - and Scott & Matt are having illicit affair. Bron leaves the Ward for London for ten weeks, while wonder-doc Charlotte Beaumont joins the medical team, firstly helping with an Ebola patient.

The second half of the year commences with Terri revealing the bombshell the Ward has been waiting to hear: she is pregnant with Mitch’s child, but tragedy soon strikes putting both mother and child in grave danger. Jared is forced to deal with terrible memories after he is raped by a drug-addled psychopath and Von must help Jared when he discovers he’s contracted gonorrhoea. Bron informs Ben that she had an affair in London and they break up, forcing Ben into the arms of Paula. In a bid to make Ben jealous, Bron sleeps with Charlotte.

The year comes to a conclusion with Mitch popping the question, Bron & Ben back together and Paula & Luke developing feelings for one another.
