    I know that Palmer was in either a shampoo or one of those "cream that you put on your spots" adverts around the same time.
    Telling it almost exactly like it was so many years later - and proud of doing so!

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 reacall the lad very well you mention in E3 yes George - he was slightly similar in his cheekyness to that of Dominic who was in Jacko and Locko's Year, but was often "Relegated" to bit part status like Justin Bennett years before and Jeremey Bishop years later in 2003, he was in from Series 13-14. As well the register- lad I think looks-wise looks like that lad in Chrissy's and Tegs' Form who said the Canal was full f "dead Dogs" when Hankin and Macca organised the Canal Trip - after the merger of Both and McKenzie's Forms in 1990!!

    Upon watching the Series 28 (remake/impersanation of Series 12's prom) and DVD Showing where maddie and martin had their "Georgina and Ziggy Moment2 , which even extended in to Series 29 (until Maddie got to the point she thought she "owned" Martin), it would have been excellent to see how this had penned out after the utterly amazing Series 25 - if the School had been refurbished in London after the fire and see if she had still hated him in the same way as she did from series 25 to Series 28s last moments!

    I still wou;d have liked Shna (even played by a different acrtess if need be) to have returned in 2005 to "re-claim" Martin as her Boyfriend,, just as i object to the fact that atalie Stevens ultimately stole Matthew Pearson from Susi Young (though yes admitted they never went out together) but I still feel Susi was Matthew's never Natalie's!

    On the subject of this Series - who else finds it amazing that 2005 is 15 years a-go!!? That is just too un-real to think about I think!
