Naybers danny 1985

Danny Ramsay in the very first episode in 1985.

Danny Ramsay was a character in Neighbours from Episode 1 - 18 March 1985 to Episode 303 - 23 July 1986. He was seen again in Episode 4773 - 27 Jul 2005. Danny was the youngest of the two Ramsay brothers but he was the product of a one night stand his mother Maria had with Tim Duncan while she was married to Max. Danny was played by David Clencie.


Danny Ramsay was born in June 1967 as a result of an extra marital relationship between his married Italian/Czech mother Maria Ramsay and Tim Duncan 9 months before in September 1966. Maria and her husband Max Ramsay had a row and had temporarily split. During this time, Maria took a holiday in the bush and had a one night stand with Tim Duncan, a traveller. Maria let Max believe that he was the father once Danny was born. Shane Ramsay was 3 or 4 at the time and could vaguely remember his mum and dad splitting up temporarily. Danny grew up in Ramsay Street in Erinsborough and was good friends with neighbour Scott Robinson.

Max never felt close to Danny like he did with Shane. As Danny got older, Max yelled at Danny more than he did at Shane. Max knew that Danny was born just 9 months after he and Maria got back together after their split. This made Max have a suspicion that he may not be Danny's blood father.

ny kept having recurring dreams about Shane injuring himself. He went to see Dr Lawson. Danny soon got over his bad dreams. In April 1985, Maria asked Max why he does not love Danny like Shane and Max says he always wondered if Danny was really his, as he never felt close to Danny as much as he did Shane, and knew he had temporarily split with Maria around the time Danny was concieved. Maria said Max was correct and he wasn't Danny's real father. Max hit the wall.

In late 1985, Danny learned that Max was not his real father. He had overheard Max telling Danny's teacher Kate Drew that he was not his real father. Danny was stunned and upset. This is why Max always treated Danny differently, Max always suspected and that is why he always shouted at him, and only knew for sure recently. Danny faced Max and Max did say that Danny is still his son as much as Shane is. Max said he loved Danny and was glad they both knew the truth. They both hugged.

In early 1986, Danny wanted to track down his real father but decided not to.

In July 1986 Danny got transferred to a bank in the country and left Erinsborough. He attended Des and Daphne's wedding then went that day. He has never returned to Erinsborough since.
