Crossroads returned to the ITV network in 2001 after a 13 year absence. The only characters to return from the original series were Jill Harvey, Doris Luke and Adam Chance. The series originally aired five times a week but this was cut back to four episodes from September, 2001 onwards. The motel had been replaced from the original series by a hotel and was now being run by the Russell family.
Age: 55 - Position: Wine Supplier and Importer
Adam supplies the hotel with wine and his unique charm, but is there more to this dealer than meets the eye? Ex-wife Jill Harvey left him for another man back in 1987, and he's now living in reduced circumstances. Getting his hands on the hotel would solve all his problems in one fell swoop.
As robust as a French vin du table and as sharp as Chardonnay turned to vinegar, Adam's learnt some bitter lessons in life. Is he about to act on them?
LATER VERSION OF BIOGRAPHY:
Smooth talking Adam Chance has been trying to get his hands on Crossroads since he first married Jill in 1983. He lost his chance the first time when she walked out on him four years later, but he wasn’t going to let another opportunity pass him by.
A failed entrepreneur, Adam was in desperate need of Jill’s share to get him out of financial trouble. Wooed by his roguish charm, she agreed to marry him for a second time, and he thought he'd nabbed 30% of Crossroads. When she revealed that she had signed the share over to Sarah-Jane he couldn’t control his rage. They argued and he pushed her body into the lake. Sarah-Jane provoked him into confessing to the murder and he had been languishing in prison plotting revenge.
Adam has recently been granted bail before his trial and has been skulking around King's Oak. He still claims to be innocent and a born again Christian. But his spying on Sarah seems to be less than holy...
Adam confessed to killing Jill following an argument over Sarah-Jane and the hotel shares. The stress of the murder drove Adam to the brink of madness. He kidnapped the real Sarah Jane and tried to burn them both alive in the church crypt. She escaped but his body was never found...
