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.

Good old Doris - she's the bedrock on which Crossroads was built. Now, she's not one to gossip but... She's taken young Scott under her wing, but how long will she delude herself over Bradley's 'phase'.
She left Crossroads in 1984 to go to live with her sister in Blackpool but four years later her sister died and the house became cold and lonely. The hotel beckoned once more as Bradley told her they were looking for staff. It wouldn't be Crossroads without Doris...
LATER VERSION OF BIOGRAPHY:
Good old Doris. She’s always got a spare five minutes and a cup of tea to listen to other people’s problems. She left Crossroads in 1984 to go to live with her sister in Blackpool, but 14 years later her sister died and the house became cold and lonely. The hotel beckoned once more as Bradley told her they were looking for staff, and Kate took her on immediately.
She was in denial for years about Bradley’s sexuality, but although she’s disappointed that he will never have children of his own as long as he’s happy she’s happy. It wouldn’t be Crossroads without Doris and her words of wisdom, and with her around the laundry will always be the cosiest place to be.
Doris retired from Crossroads following Bradley's departure.
