Dr. James Turner is a main character in the Frasier-based fan fiction spin-off Crane Life.
James first appears in the Season 6 premiere, after transferring from another practice in his native country, England. He quickly strikes up friendships with the others, and develops a friendly rivalry with Dr. Sebastian Belle which often sees them desperately trying to one-up each other. James also develops a bond with Daphne Moon over their heritage. Towards the end of the season, James becomes romantically involved with Dr. Laura Mead, but their relationship doesn't last beyond a few trysts when they reach the conclusion that they don't have enough in common. After briefly rekindling his romance with Laura at the end of Season 7, James departs the practice prior to the start of Season 8.
