I am also confused as to why the took 'Scream Street' and 'Strange Hill High' off the air at the start of this year, they were such good shows!


Scream Street is back on air on 13th August at 3.25pm.


Never heard that name for years.
Its a good show!

Yes, the first 5 episodes of the recent series adapts the majority of the Total Control book and is pretty faithful, but then the series got extended whilst being written, so the second half is completely original but obviously links back to the original TV series. Shame they couldn't get the original actress to return to play Dinah though. The last episode obviously resolves the Total Control plotlines as well as the rest of the story.

There is the 2nd reboot book Mortal Control released last year, which presumably another series could adapt if it gets made. However, there are also Revenge of the Demon Headmaster (the Hunky Parker one), and Facing the Demon Headmaster books that have never been adapted, which I'm sure with a bit of re-writing could use the new characters if needed.


I remember in December that the BBC were considering a second series. It now appears that it may not be happening as none of the cast mentioned a recommission. I doubt there are going to be many CBBC shows filming this summer, so the next year will be filled with a lot of repeats.


My friend works for CBBC and an email was supposedly sent around giving details of which programmes were still going ahead and being filmed from September/October. My friend was glad as it gave them a bit of reassurance as to what their next job will be!

One thing that hasn’t been mentioned yet (despite being commissioned) is a new 3 part drama with a mid 2000s CBBC legend.


Tracy Beaker?


I presume that it’s this, meaning that DJ Dave was right:

Dani Harmer is to take on the role of Tracy Beaker once again for an adaption of My Mum Tracy Beaker - not sure how this is going to fit into the timeline of the TV series, as although the first series of Tracy Beaker was a pretty faithful adaption of the books, the series after have taken their own turn. I imagine it’ll be completely separate from everything after series 1 of The Story of Tracy Beaker, including Tracy Beaker Returns and The Dumping Ground.

Imagine they'll be based on Jaqueline Wilson's latest books of the same name. Really true to the original story/series and see Tracy living on a council estate with her daughter.
