Missing Information We're   looking   for   information   on   Gwen   Gidley   as   character/actor   details   are   missing. If   you   can   help   with   any   information,   please   do   get   in   touch   and/or   anyone   else   we may have missed. Extra Details Gillian   McCann   (1960s):   With   thanks   to   Paul   Kinnear   we   have   the   added   information that   Clare   Kelly   played   Nicola   Freeman   and   Mickey   Doyle's   mother   in   Crossroads, while   Denis   Holmes   played   Nicola   Freeman's   step-father.   Scott   Curtis   added   the character names of Elieen and George Potter. He   also   added   further   information   that   'Nicola   Freeman'   was   called   Suzie   Doyle   when younger.   A   neighbour   of   Lily   Boone   at   the   time   when   the   family   lived   in   Harborne   in Birmingham.   Scott   also   reminded   us   that   Barbara   New   played   Dot,   nicknamed   Dotty in the series who was Ivy Meachers sister. With   thanks   to Andy   Dutton   we   now   know   the   name   of   the   Welsh   family   in   the   series. Andy   tells   us   Sion   Probert's   character   was   Harry   Turvey,   Eira   Turvey was   played   by   Myfanwy   Talog   and   another   Welsh   actor   John   Marshall   also   featured   in   the   family   line   up.   These   were   thanks   to   Crossroads   the   first   Welsh actors on the network in a serial. With   thanks   to   Gary   Moore   more   'lost   information'   is   now   known.   First,   we   listed   that   Doreen   Keogh   was   contracted   by ATV   to   appear   in   20-30   episodes,   but we   knew   nothing   else   on   her   time   on   the   soap.   She   played   newspaper   reporter,   Mrs   Candour.   Gary   also   provided   us   with   information   on   Kay   Patrick   who   we now   know   played   Jean   Peterson   in   December   1967   and   Gillian   McCutcheon   played   a   character   called Tania   in   January   1967.   We   also   have   to   thank   Gary   for the Janet Whiteside information, we now know she played the mother of Stevie Harris, Lily. Stevie was one of Meg's many adopted children. With   thanks   to   'Survivor'   we   now   know   that   the   Granada Archive   mis-labled   Rosemary Ashley   in   their   picture   archive,   it   was   of   course   Rosalie Ashley   playing Jane Templeton.   He   also   added   Jacqueline   Stanbury   played   Joanne   Petersen   to   the   cast   list.   She   starred   as   a   friend   of   Sandys   and   later   but   only   for   a   short time   was   Megs   part   time   secretary.   'Survivor'   also   provided   details   on   Monsieur   Fabrice   a   hairdresser   played   by   real-life   famous   TV   stylist   Raymond   Besson, known as "Teazy Weazy Raymond". The   first   name   of   Raymond   was   all   the   Central   archive   held,   the   actors   surname   was   missing   from   the   list.   We   also   can   now   thanks   to   Survivor   add   that Jack   Hayes   played   Enoch   Jarvis   (the   father   of   Dick   Jarvis)   and   Colin   Sands   (the   brother   of   JoAnne   Good's   character)   was   portrayed   by   Paul   Blake.   Mitch also   tells   us   more   about   the   friend   of   Penny   Richardson   (Meg's   neice)   and   her   school   chum   from   Kings   Oak   Shirley   Perkins.   Shirley   was   a   character   in   the series   from   1966   until   1969.   Shirley   was   Penny's   friend   and   was   then   adopted   by   the   Jarvis   family   after   Shirley's   dad   became   a   drunk   and   her   mum   (played by Miriam Margolyes) tried to rob the motel. Shirley   Perkins   later   became   a   nurse   after   leaving   Kings   Oak   school   and   nursed   Vince   the   postman   through   his   temporary   blindness   after   Meg's   car accident.   Vince   dumped   Shirley   for   Diane   when   he   recovered.   Shirley   went   off   with   the   local   antique   dealer   (Marcus   who   had   been   dating   Diane!)   and   was seen only one or two more times after that in guest spots in the early 1970s. She was played by Jacqueline Holborough who is now a playwright. Spotted anyone missing? Let us know via the contact button below...
