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 »
A lot of the UK press are really criticising Crossroads at the moment but that's just because of the stigma it has from the old series. The new version really is a classy soap. Sure it's plots are totally unbelievable (like the current 2 Sarah-Jane's plot) but thats what makes it so good.
It's a world away from the likes of Eastenders and Coronation Street and all the better for it. Sure some of the younger actors leave a lot to be desired in terms of talent but characters like Billy, Kate Russell, Doris and Patrick Russell are brilliantly played.
All Crossroads needs is a few of the creases ironing out and it could easily go up against the likes of Brookside and Emmerdale.
Please Carlton, have some confidence. Don't axe Crossroads!!!
