    The Doctors

    Frank Telfer played Luke the entire time. I think Virginia was written out in 1978.

    The Doctors

    Actually Luke (Lew) Dancy lasted longer. He showed up right after Joan Dancy died and was there till the last episode on December 31, 1982.

    I know Weber showed up as Burton Canfield on Texas in 1982. He was definitely in the final episode of Texas, appearing alongside Lori March who played his wife Mildred.

    The Doctors

    A lot of us speculate that Anna burned her bridges in 1976 with her remarks to the press about the writing and direction the show had taken with Toni and Mike (including a head-scratching career change for Mike). She was written out very abruptly around September 1976, seemingly before her contract had expired. So it's very possible that her criticism of the show led to her departure.

    The original plan as announced in 1983 was that Hillary and Katie would both fall in love with Jim Reardon, leading to friction between the two friends. However, that storyline was shelved for some reason.

    The Doctors

    As soon as Lakin left in 1969, there was an immediate shift in the writing style. I found it very noticeable. There was an intelligence in the writing when Lakin was there that disappeared when Edelstein took over. What didn't help was the overacting of James Shannon in the role of Paul Bennett. The Doctors truly lost something magical when Lakin departed.

    Proposed Soaps Over The Years

    I recall Soap Opera Digest talking about both shows. Star Crossed was about rival families in the auto industry and their children who fell in love ala Capitol. So this article appeared in 1984? For some reason, I recall Soap Opera Digest reporting on the shows in 1983. I think they were being primed for a September 1983 premiere.

    The guy who played Matt Weiss was Jeff Gendelman, who had been on Loving. If I remember correctly, CBS nixed the storyline with Matt and he was quickly written out. I believe the story goes is that CBS' interference is what we led Pam Long to leave as head writer.

    Sheri Anderson was head writer when Lacey was introduced. Lacey was around for less than two months. I believe she seduced Cameron Stewart. She then left Springfield.

    I'm pretty sure Jayne Bentzen was also on Guiding Light. It was around November/December 1983 -- around the time Reva was introduced.

    I don't think it's referring to Leo. Rather, it was referring to Matt Weiss, a short-lived character on Guiding Light. Matt was involved in a story with Harley and Mindy, I believe. Leo didn't show up on Loving till around 1992. I find it odd that SOD referred to the character of JD on Generations as Sam's younger brother. JD did appear on Generations in 1989 and was played by Gerard Prendergast. Only, JD was Sam's older brother. I don't think JD ever returned though there were plans to recast the role.
  12. Springfield had an earthquake? I don't remember that. I recall one on that silly island where Reva was a princess. Dr. Althea Davis on The Doctors has had brain surgery at least 2 or 3 times.

    AMC Tribute Thread

    Contrary to what you say, there are fans who DO want to see it. I just told a few friends who are absolutely stoked about the chance to revisit Pine Valley.

    Soap Hoppers

    I couldn't recall if Chris was perhaps an undercover detective working on the film. I believe Falzone was a contract player and I was always surprised that the character was written out so quickly.

    For Falzone, was Chris Rafferty a detective on Edge? I place Falzone playing an actor on the "Mansion of the Damned" movie that was filmed in Monticello in 1979.
