TVNZ Streaming service TVNZ OnDemand has a range of new channels to choose from. Television dramas about euthanasia are rare. However, this year the Australians did it with The End and now New Zealand has The Pact . The six-part series is based on actor-writer Natalie Medlock's 2017 short film of the same name about an elderly couple (played by Kate Harcourt and Desmond Kelly) who, when one is faced with a terminal diagnosis, make a suicide pact. Five years on, the series – written by Medlock and fellow Shortland Street alumni Harry McNaughton – focuses on septuagenarians Betty (Irene Wood) and Frank (Ian Mune). When one of them is diagnosed with a terminal illness and decides to end their life, each member of the family – daughter Isla (Bronwyn Bradley), son Aaron (Kirk Torrance), his wife Sophie (Jessica Joy Wood) and granddaughter Alice (Timmie Cameron) are forced to question their own different beliefs.
