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 »
STAR RATING:*****Unmissable****Very Good***Okay**You Could Go Out For A Meal Instead*Avoid At All Costs
Only six months into the new re-vamped Crossroads,and rumor is already starting to spread of a potential axing.Well,to be honest,this is not really surprising.As high hopes as anyone might have had for this new edition , it's really just not up to scratch.The main problem being the acting:it is , whatever way you look at it, wooden.Everyone involved simply reads their lines out as blankly and dully as you can imagine,so that they sound almost like cyborgs.The stories are rather cliched and predictable,with love triangles,high stakes and adversity being mainly on the agenda.And it is so hard to believe that all this could be going on under the roof of a hotel.Worth watching,but certainly only as something to glance at while eating your snack.**
