    Who else is still loving Series 10 (the best ever), 32 years on from 1987!!?

    It's unbeliveable and un-comprendable to think that that Series is only 18 years shy of being 50 years old or more-ever 8 short of it being new 40 years back!1

    Mr "Selina" Scott was in that series, and I think that he was the most sincere GH form tutor since Mr Mitchell in the first two series - pity that he had to put up with Imelda and Trevor Cleaver which to be honest I thought that was victimised more with Cleaver and so I would say that he had more trouble with him. I like him as he tried to be reasonable with his form and there would have been a harmonious relationship with his form if those two weren't in it.

    Arran Bell also appeared in a couple of episodes of The Bill circa 1991 as a Detective - he always seemed to be a quiet, shy type which shows through.
    Telling it almost exactly like it was so many years later - and proud of doing so!

    Arran was brilliant as Mr Scott - an un-mitgated walking disaster and truely happless in nearly every sense, George!

    I can only imagine what it'd of been like if he had survived 2 and bit more years to be along-side that next disaster that was Mr Hankin! Thankfully though Jeff Hankin gave Grange Hill 12 years loyal service and ultimatley was respected by Teachers and Kids a-like - even if though as late as 2001 Kieron "Franklyn" Ozzie Osbourne ran a hate campaign against him

    Geoff Hankin (I think it was spelt with a G) was in GH for 13 series as I think he was there between 1990 and 2002 - the series before Robson left.

    I have to admit that Hankin reminded me of a Science teacher at my school - he was a little bit eccentric which meant that I enjoyed his lessons even more.

    Hya George,

    I can not recall it ever been seen or said Mr Hankin was a Geoff with a "G", I personally always imagined him to be a "J" Jeff or so I'd hoped - just I guess/thought that the "J" suited him more/better, like some Stephens with a "P" or "H2, but each to his/her own thoughts/opinions if it was never clarified I say!!

    Talking about Mr Hankin, as has been said previous - I wonder who did survive the 2002 Fire 9or reading between the lines) anyway and what Grange Hill may have become if there had been one more or more Series' in London after 2002 as opposed to "Liverpool"!?

    I know that Baxter was a Geoff, and I am certain that I saw on the IMDB that Hankin was a Geoff as well - in Britain, the G spelling seems to be more common than the J spelling.

    So after a fantastic week of news - put simply can Phil redmond do"Mission Impossible" and bring GrangeHill back to our screens as has been so widly mentioned in the news! I hope so - I really do, I am loving the zammo idea as well. What a twist that would be!

    In other GH related news, in this week's Inside Soap one of their competitions is to win Series 7 and 8's DVD's - which are obviously due for release in general as a follow on to Series 5 and 6 last year(which co-incidentley I never knewof until the other day)

    If it was possible I would love to make a seperate thread on here (if heather, HG, Big Daddy allowed it) so then the more that looked and with may-be a petition added to it - that this may-be help the BBC change their so far "nilch stance" on a return!

    Thanks in advance

    nIt is just a question of getting the BBC on-board I think Daren, but so far they are'nt interested - humours knows why though lol

    As for me regardless of Grange Hill - Phil is a very inflential man in TV Circles, he created Brrookside .... C4's first ever soap and years before EasteEnders at that, then saved Emmerdale when the old writers knew it could'nt be just "Emmerdalle Farm" no longer and Hollyaks will be 25 in 2020 too!

    If Grange Hill is to come back - now is the time I think as Phil has the "Zammo idea" and as long as it's set in London like before why not!!?

    Like somebody said ( or rather what I read elswhere) "school's will always exist, so we need school type programes andit is the same with the Police etc - now we have no The Bill, but we need shows like that not CSI Investigates etc ... let this Grange Hill chance go now and the chance is wrecked forever I think (and only 11 Years aftit ended - nearly)

    All of us who love it as fans Imho should get behind Phil's Ideas - so the BBC CAN not tirn it down!!

    As well as his thoughts on knife crime etc - we could ve even pick up where we left off in Series 25 (not literally) but "scrap" the Liverpool years and call it a spin-off, as even 17 years back we had Cyber Bullying, Knife Crime in 1998 Series, so if Phil's as serious as he is and as influential it's o a true-true winner I say!
