Mark Farmer played Gary Hargreaves in the classic children's Drama series Grange Hill, appearing in the series, from 1979-1981, Mark's character was the elder brother of fellow Grange Hill pupil Cathy Hargreaves (played by Lindy Brill).
Also seen, Sara Sugarman (who played Zoe in the Minder episode A Well Fashioned Fit-Up), whose character in Grange Hill, was called Jessica Samuels.
All of the episodes of Grange Hill (featuring Mark Farmer), have been released on DVD.
I think I should take a look. The first Grange Hill was set at a high school close to where I used to go too... I could really get into watching this. Nice to know he was in this. I wonder how Minder connects to this, I remember he was like a student to Arthur Daley.
I watched the first two episode of series 1 recently. I was genuinely surprised how good they were with Todd Carty great as a young Tucker Jenkins.
If IMDb is to be believed, Mark Farmer's first episode is series 2 episode 4 'Grammar' (which is only 13 episodes in from the beginning of series 1, so if you watched from the start it wouldn't be too long before Mark appeared.

Daley & McCann are, as good as, holding hands, on the exercise yard, in the scrubs.
