2003 was Hollyoaks's ninth year of production.

Overview[]

2003 saw the future of Hollyoaks secured as executive producer Phil Redmond backtracked on threats to pull the programme following the cancellation of Brookside in October 2002. After Brookside's final episode was transmitted in November 2003, Hollyoaks began transmitting at five episodes weekly, which it would continue to do until 2020.

This year saw the pacing of the mystery serial killer increase, having only been very sporadic in December 2002. April 2003 saw the first on-screen death at the hands of the serial killer, revealed in the same episode to be Toby Mills. Hollyoaks aired its third late night special, Hollyoaks: Leap of Faith, which featured the death of Toby. However, the story would not be concluded until 2004 as Dan Hunter was accused of being the serial killer and killing Toby.

The year being dominated by the serial killer storyline saw little arrivals, returns and axings. Only three new HCC students arrived in September: Mel Burton, Joe Spencer and Robbie Flynn. Mel's family and step-family were introduced in November. Ashley Taylor Dawson returned in October 2003 for a permanent stint, whilst Terri Dwyer returned in December 2003 for a shorter stint. David McAlister also reprised his role as Dennis Richardson was released from prison, and departed later in the year as Dennis died of liver cancer.
