You can see already that cast members are desperately trying to find new jobs.

Unbeleivably, Crossroads is coming back... and is going to be all glammed up!

Brookside hasn't been good for 3 or 4 years now so I'm not surprised it's been cancelled.

I'm very surprised Crossroads is coming back, I didn't think anyone watched it???

It may yet be saved. Phill Redmond, who originally conceived Brookie has threatened to withdraw his other soap, Hollyoaks, if Channel 4 don't change their minds.
Hollyoaks is one of C4's star programs, so this row could get interesting.

Man, proud man, drest in a little brief authority, most ignorant of what he’s most assured,
his glassy essence, like an angry ape, plays such fantastic tricks before high heaven,
as makes the angels weep.

I don't think it'd be a good idea to do that.

What will the cast from Hollyoaks do??? Go on to another channel????

I used to love it (then lost interest) then regained interest when the whole lyns, shelly thing began, then lost interest again.
As it stands now I'll be sad to see it go.

Yeah, I'll miss it. I doubt I'll watch it when it gets shunted to Saturday afternoons.

Sheila Grant was my favourite character. I can remember the first episode. (I was very young at the time.....of course)

ClijstersFan, the cast of Hollyoaks will then go to flash in the pan serial dramas yet still maintain their z list "crap pack" celebrity status (see Gary Lucy) by hanging around at "TV Now! Awards" bashes and the like...

So yeah they'll all go to ITV, or go on Mersey Beat on teh beeb like that lass did... whats her name, Joanna Taylor or something.

Presumably Phill Redmond would sell the programe to another channel.
Here's what he said:

"If they've screwed Brookside, is Channel 4 really the best place for Hollyoaks? Are we going to be messed around again in two years time?"

Sorry to drag up a year old thread but the last ever Brookside went out last night Any UK posters watch? I will miss it, I used to watch it regularly when it was really good. I watched it from the beginning when they repeated it on Sky and it was a really groundbreaking show. Someone was on TV saying Brookside paved the way for EastEnders and because of Brookie, EastEnders is as gritty and realistic as it is. I do not think EastEnders is realistic at all and if they think EastEnders is gritty they should have watched some of the stories on Brookie. It got silly towards the end but I will miss it, especially Tim and Steve!

I hadn't watched Brookie in years, but watched the last one out of curiosity.
It was all a bit bonkers was it not? Or maybe I just didn't get it, having not watched it for a while.

Farewell Brookie!
