The 2001-2 series saw the return of four characters from the show's prior run (1964-88). These were Jill Harvey, Adam Chance, Doris Luke and Sarah-Jane Harvey. The first three were reprised by original actors Jane Rossington, Tony Adams and Kathy Staff, whilst the last - Jill's daughter - was previously only seen as a child. The makers of the 2003 series were intending to bring back Chance, but the show was cancelled before they could. See more »
This had potential. A soap opera set in a hotel could've been good if the producers and writers and cast actually made the effort.
I was disappointed. But I liked the plot line in the 2001-2002 version involving Jake Booth emotionally abusing Tracey Booth, his wife, and Tracey turning into an alcoholic. I loved this plot line and I felt very sorry for Tracey Booth and the way she was being abused by Jake.
I hated having to watch Miss goody-two shoes Nicola Russel get her top GCSE grades though. The plot line was dull, stupid, boring, irrelevant, and ultimately insulting to those who got bad examination results like me. I felt that this plot line took the biscuit out of those students who may've done badly in the year 2001, I did badly and felt like this plot was rubbing my nose in my failures, if that makes sense.
Most of the plot lines were dull, the ending was just pure stupid. I liked Cindy Marshall-Day's performance and Colin Wells was great. But they were the only decent two cast members.
The Samson's were horrible. They should've had more violence, lies, deceit, and betrayals, then the soap could've been much better.
If they try it again, it needs big reforms if it is to have a fighting chance of succeeding.
