Tucker's Luck is a 1983 spin-off of the classic BBC TV school drama
Grange Hill. Created by Phil Redmond, the London-based show follows the
life of bad-boy, though big-hearted, former pupil Peter "Tucker" Jenkins
(Todd Carty). He has now left school and the wrath of his teachers but
faces life in grim Thatcher's Britain in the early 1980s. Finding work
and a girlfriend are among many troubles for Tucker and a few of his
former school friends from Grange Hill.
