Tuck into this!
Most spin-off series are dire, but this one which emerged because of the most popular character of the children's series Grange Hill, was an exception to that rule. Todd Carty played Tucker Jenkins, the irrascible naughty pupil of the aforementioned secondary school, who was forever in and out of trouble, or engineering wild money making schemes instead of learning from his lessons. In Tucker's Luck there was a chance to show viewers his life after leaving school (Which in his case was between 1978 and 1983), especially the problems which he and many a teen faced in Thatcher's Britain of the early 1980s. Along with a few of his old school pals, Tucker often had to contend with adult bullies, one called Passmore if I remember correctly, and even a racist girlfriend.

The second series didn't outstay it's welcome, and ended in a good way, when Tucker bumped into one of his school peers, Trisha Yates.
