There is a brief mention of Craig’s return to Shortland Street on the stuff.co.nz site today:
A familiar face is returning to Shortland Street – Chris Warner’s brother Guy, played by Craig Parker. WW reports Guy will star in a good old fashioned love triangle with Chris’ wife Toni, and actress Laura Hill is pretty happy about it. “Now I get to kiss both Dr Love and his brother,” Laura gushes to WD. “How cool is that?” Just because you can, Laura, doesn’t mean you should.
Craig is on the cover of the current New Zealand Woman’s Weekly magazine, with a 3 page article on his return to Shortland Street. I should have scans soon, but here’s the cover in the meantime:

Thanks to Throng.co.nz, there are some new pics of Craig at the Shortland Street 15th Anniversary party on Friday, May 4th in the Shortland Street Gallery.
I’ve also updated the Shortland Street page.
Friday night in Auckland, NZ, was the 15th anniversary celebration for Shortland Street. The New Zealand Herald has this to say about Craig:
Craig Parker, who has returned as Guy Warner after a long absence from the show, said the programme’s enduring success was down to familiarity.
“New Zealanders are not well-renowned for sticking with local television programmes but there is something familiar about Shortland Street.”
Parker said the show had been the training ground for several local actors who have found fame overseas including Martin Henderson, Marton Csokas and Morrison.
“It’s the only regular work … in this country and it’s given people financial security and the opportunity to work with their mates every day.”

The NZ Herald published an interview/article with Craig today that I’ve added to the articles section here.
It includes this photo:
