    If they can keep re-newing and swapping Stations for rubbish and tat like Big Brother and Celbrity Big Brother Darren , then i am sure phil could push a bit harder towards another TV Station - even having it on later on, later at night after the watershead even, as far as that goes!!

    I can even recall him saying on a CBBC Interview circa roughly 1998 that i tapedand probably still have it somewhere , that Phil said as long as Schools exist so would a need for Grange Hilland let's face it Ackley bridge is no replacement for waterloo rd even if it has a decent cast in it which Waterloo did have - but was still no Grange hill replacement - so to me that leaves "srandad between a rock and a hard place"

    Years back (early 200s) on all the old Yahoo Groups etc - some member wrote a fantastic fantasy storyline involving after hollo had left Grange hilla nd imelda as both left in 1987 Series 10 the 3rd Year (Year 9 Currency Today) where there wassomething about Gonch and Hollo and Ziggy/Robbie etc ganging upon Imelda then somehow Imelda reedeemed herself - it even probably involved Mauler I think , who never "supposedly" knew Hollo

    I hated it when they introduced characters we never knew wh existed, but the writters thought we should know them - the only exceptions being Freddie and Ant in Series 9 and 10 for Ant and 10 and 11 for Freddie. Even Danny's originial year including Danny - that was immensley 2waterd down" by Year 11 (5th Year in 1988 Currency) to include just Freddie, Laura and Louise as Danny had been put back to do his 4th Year again and Julia went to St Bernedettes with ant wrote out after a 2nd Year at St Joe's - to me even that was'nt convincing having only 3 Years with "said characters" and I would have loved to have watched Danny and Freddie in First Year - though it sadly was'nt to be

    One thing though regarding their Year - can anyone (real knowledable GH Fans) confirm for certain if Big Tel and Tony Trent was in Freddie's year (Clark's Brother as in Clark/Tegs and Matthew Pearson) as 1st Years in 88. Thanks

    Dont think that Patsy had a speaking part in the series,
    she just always seemed to be in the background

    That's more than 1,800 years ago!
    Telling it almost exactly like it was so many years later - and proud of doing so!

    She played a character called Natasha in 1986 when she appeared in the "Gonch's toast bar" storyline - PE teacher Liz "mother of Laura" Regan spoke to her and asked her whether eating toast in the playground is another craze.

    ...and too she played a part in the background in Series 10 as a member of Form E3 - sitting quietly in the background while Trev and Imelda tourtored Mr Scott, George mate!!

    Naomi Campbell was an extra in some episodes in the mid 1980s, not sure if she got any lines.

    Probably the same character, although I don't think I saw her name in the credits and so she must have been downgraded to being an Extra. Mind you, with what else was going on in Scott's form in 1987, it's too easy to overlook some of the Extras. As she was obviously a girl, I would have wondered whether she would have sided with Imelda or have been on Calley and Ronnie's side of the fence.

    One Extra I can think of is that male pupil who tried to put a corner of the register in his mouth when Scott said "the register is a legal document and must be taken twice daily" - I think that was from the episode where scrunched up paper and paper planes on the classroom floor probably made it a target for a Keep Britain Tidy campaign. Also, who indeed were "Allen" and "Beeching", before Birtles was mentioned - the two names which often came first in the E3 class register. In their First Year (E1?) in 1985 when McClusky called the register it did - the episode where Calley was in the girls' toilets when she found that she was adopted, and Miss Washington had told the class to "mark themselves in the register". She could have been one of them.

    Interesting how surnames are chosen so that they tally when class registers are taken - Trisha Yates, Susi Young etc, were probably chosen to be at the end of the register. And Alan Humphries seemed to be a regular at the Deed Poll place so that his surname would probably be in its place when the class register was called.

    I think it was in series 5 (1982) - the same series where future That's Life! "Nancy" Gavin Campbell (same surname but not related to Naomi) appeared in that Chessington Zoo episode as a teacher from a rival school with a Bronson-type attitude. Gavin Campbell joined a postponed series of the consumer show in autumn of that year due to Esther's pregnancy earlier on in 1982.
