About this deal

The way her dreadful parents fail to recognise the incredibly precious treasure that is their beautiful daughter is their loss and the audience's gain as Marmalade sails through all her hilarious adventures, creating havoc everywhere. Mrs Allgood (Gillian Raine) was replaced by Wendy Wooley (Elizabeth Estensen - who developed a progressively more elaborate nervous twitch as each episode passed) and poor Mrs Atkins had a complete face change when Carol Macready replaced Lynda Marchal. Also featuring John Bird [5] and Lynda Marchal as her parents Mr and Mrs Atkins (the latter replaced by Carol MacReady for the Marmalade at Work series), the programmes were produced by Thames Television for ITV. also included is the pilot episode, Marmalade Atkins in Space, first screened as part of the anthology series Theatre Box in 1981. Both series would happily parody other popular shows and films at the time, hence episodes titled Cringe Hill, Marmalade Bravo, 007½ and Shame – in which Marmalade is enrolled in the New York School for Big Heads and Show-offs.

This brash and noisy television comic strip was developed by Andrew Davies from his own book, Marmalade and Rufus. Outside regular school hours she attended classes at the Anna Scher Theatre School in Islington, north London, because she said she was "too cool" to go to the Brownies. I think there was a Marmalade comic strip in Look-in magazine (alongside ones about Adam Ant solving a mystery and taking everyone along to see E. Surrounded by the most awful adults (her father, the con-man millionaire; her lazy, gold-digging mother; the useless social worker and other miscreants, all of whom can't wait to get rid of her), it is a wonder that Marmalade has turned out as the beautiful, sweet, intelligent and loving young lady that she is.

For this series, Marmalade had now left school and had a new social worker who was Wendy Wooley after Mrs Allgood had finally had enough.

Quote from: Rizla on January 27, 2022, 04:04:25 PMI have it in the same mindbracket as "Seaview" starring pre-Blue Peter Yvette Fielding, perhaps because she also caused "feelings". We will introduce you exclusively to Newpay finance products provided by NewDay Limited under this Introducer Appointed Representative arrangement. I don't remember this but wiki said the first TV appearance was in a one off "Marmalade Atkins in Space" adaption.She’s sassy, confident and cool, generally finishing all her sentences with the word ‘cock’ (short for cockney I guess) acceptable then as a cheery working class endearment. Vividly brought to life by Charlotte Coleman, she's both a droll chorus figure and an optimistic, surrogate victim.
