No arguments! The greatest person ever to be in Grange Hill was...


...Laura Sadler as Judi Jeffries. The show was not the same after she died.
RIP, Laura.

Dear BBC, when are you going to show Nuts On The Road? NIM - NIM - NIM!!!

Tucker Jenkins is the correct answer of course.


Absolutely.

reply

Yes, Jenkins was the absolute most vital character the show ever had (or at least the earliest series/seasons that I grew up with). However, one can make a reasonably good argument that virtually all of the characters from the show's early years were vital simply because of their distinct looks and personalities. For example, I thought the show was never the same after Lucinda Duckett left after the first series. This might sound somewhat extreme, but without Duckett's Ann Wilson, the 'look' and 'feel' of the show seemed to had changed--so vital was one look and personality to a winning combination of characters.

It was Michael Sheard as Maurice Bronson and his "You boy, come here!" classic line that never got old.

Mr Baxter, most authentic teacher you could wish for!

The most iconic has to be Tucker Jenkins or Zammo.

Tucker's always going to be the first that springs to mind. Todd Carty is a great actor and the spin-off Tucker's Luck is worth watching too.
