User Reviews

Better than prime time TV.
30 January 2002 | by chris_gaskin123See all my reviews

I have been watching Grange Hill since the early 1980's and still watch it to this day, even though I have long left school.

This drama is better than some of the rubbish which is on TV in the evenings at prime time. A lot of the time all there is on are repeats of detective shows or cheap to make 'fly on the wall' documentaries.

The young actors and actresses take good parts and a lot have moved on to become well known and star in soaps like EastEnders. Some quite well known faces have played the teachers too such as Anna Quayle (Mrs Munroe) who was in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

Rating: 4 stars out of 5.
