The Grimleys Classic TV Show
Dudley, the 1970's. Gordon Grimley has met the love of his life, Miss Geraldine Titley, a teacher at his school. Gordon's problems are that Miss Titley does not feel the same way, Mr Digby the sadistic P.E. teacher hates him and he is a misfit schoolboy.
The Grimleys Fan Tributes17 John from Australia: Absolutely brilliant. Genius. I grew up in Birmingham so can relate to it well. Dad Grimley (Nigel Planer): "Why do you wanna go to Jodrell Bank... there's parts of Dudley ain't been discovered yet."
16 melissa from salford: i was an extra in the grimmleys when i was in buile hill high school and i loved filming it was a fantastic experience and memory for me.
15 Emma from Herefordshire: I love "The Grimleys" very much. I think that it is a wonderful programme and I often watch recordings of it. The story lines and the characters are very good and Gordon is my favourite character.
14 lee gledhill from leeds: fantastic show very funny should be more made
13 Adam from Lancs: Hi, dont know if you guys can help but a friend of mine was in the grimleys as an extra and i'd love to see him in it. Part of the episode was filmed at our local swimming pool. If anyone knows an episode number or title i'd be eternally grateful!!
Thanks in advance
12 Michele Gaze from Australia: The Grimleys is absolutely brilliant! Although I am from Australia, life in the seventies was not so dirrerent there - it reminds me so much of high school here. The characters are too amazing, the fashions were too awful back then, people's attitudes to work and sex were too ignorant, and I just loved every minute of it! My fave character is Darren Grimley as Ryan Cartwright is one of my fave actors, but all the characters were brilliant, and very well cast. We never got it on Australian TV but I was lucky enough to have a recpording sent to me. It would be really great if it was available to buy on DVD soon! I haven't yet seen The Grimley Curse and would love to if anyone out there has it! Cheers!
11 alison from washington: brilliant series, never missed an episode! reminded me so much of my teenage years, am currently getting up every saturday morning to watch the re-runs on itv3 and am enjoying it as much as i ever did
10 jacqui c-w from bournemouth: Re-living my teenage years all over again. Baz has to be the best character, the way he sat in his armchair watching t.v. all the time
9 John from Kent: Dave Treblecock's classic all purpose woodwork lesson plan. In series 3 When the boys had finished the pencil case Dave just turns the design drawing on its side and says Now boys it's time to make a wardrobe.
The pencil case (6 foot version) also made a stunning entrance when Doug Digby was buried in the 'coffin' made by Dave Treblecock and the woodwork class.
8 Dhris from Dudley: Just as I remember it growing up in Dudley. LOVE IT......"gordon, do yao need the toilet?"
7 Geoff Bemrose from Stoke on Trent: Brilliant retro comedy,a good send up of seventies life,in the Midlands,good cast.Well written.Only wished that Jack Dee,the original Doug Digby,could have done the whole series.Noddy Holder,what a star.Bring It On!!!!!
6 Ms S.R. Lang from kent: "The Grimleys" is a great series. It brought back happy
memory's of how my school day's mirrored this show!It was just how school used to be, back in the late 60's/early 70's what a wonderful era!
5 ruth from dudley: luvin the grimleys, its a classic. Best 1ns gota b when Gordon looses his memory an moves into the Titley's
4 Amy Laverick from Darilington: My main memory is seeing my old friend Woody in his undies
3 Emma Lewis from Ross-on-Wye: I like "The Grimleys" very much. It is my most favourite television programme. I like Gordon Grimley most of all in it as I think he is a very nice boy. I have videos of the programme as I like it so much and Granada Television very kindly sent me some photographs of the cast as I wrote to them to say I liked it one day. Something I do very much wish is if only the second series could be released on video or shown on sky or even mainstream television again.
2 Heather from Kent: Very very funny show! I love Darren Grimley as he is extremley sexy!
1 Rob from Taunton: Cos its just downright funny. My favourite character would have to be Doug Digby, before he was killed off that is.
