Coming up in the second season of 'Ashes To Ashes', Alex Drake will have another vision via her TV set of her life back in the "real world". And this time, the venue for that vision will be a classic British children's series, 'Grange Hill'.

Unable to get involved, Alex will watch her daughter Molly get sent to Mrs. McClusky's office (Was she the principal?) after fighting with one of the show's most famous characters, Tucker. (Tucker apparently told Molly that her Mum was dead.)

And as Mrs. McClusky talks to Molly, it dawns on the girl that something must have happened with her mother.......
I'm not going to make any speculation about this until I actually see the scene. Will 'Grange Hill' be mentioned as a series? Could we just assume that Alex is hallucinating any school of that era? (I'm assuming the scenes in which Molly is interjected were culled from episodes broadcast back in the early 80s?)

But I'm not going to be surprised if this turns out to be another Zonk of a headache!

You're welcome! And Mrs McClusky was the principal except we call them headmistresses, headmasters or headteachers. Or we used to. Principal's starting to come in now, I think.
