The four or five times a week adventures of a motel owner, son, daughter and her staff. Drama was never far away from the ringing of the reception bell.
In 2018, Endeavour: Passenger (2018) featured a certain "Crossroads Motel" in King's Oak, in a key scene. Set in the late 1960s, the series used a re-constructed version of the outdoor sign, reception and hotel room sets. This inclusion, of an ATV/Central TV programme that happens to be set in the same period and area, can plausibly imply that the original version of "Crossroads"/"King's Oak" and the later "Endeavour"/"Morse"/"Lewis" series exist within the same story universe.
The March 1975 civil ceremony wedding of a fairly anonymous motel owner to a businessman - Meg Richardson and Hugh Mortimer - at Birmingham Register Office sees the city centre thronged with well-wishers; similarly the later affirmation/blessing at Birmingham Cathedral has a packed congregation, outside police supervision and reporters. Whilst in reality this reflects the interest of the general public in the show and its production, in narrative terms it is completely nonsensical.
