Stookie – Episode 1

Stookie - Episode 1

Two posh kids, Kirsty and her brother David, are bird watching by the Clyde, but stray too far and go into the territory of Big Harper and his gang of kids from the local estate. Big Harper doesn’t want outsiders intruding, but the ever brave Stookie Doyle sticks up for the studious pair, putting himself in danger. Meanwhile valuable artwork has been stolen from the Burrell Collection and the thieves are on the run. First in the children’s drama series based on a story by James Graham. Stookie, the rough around the edges hero, was given his nickname after accidently breaking Big Harper’s arm leading to him wearing a cast.

    I remember the actor who played Stookie coming to my primary school in Paisley 1985 and all the kids crowding and following him around? the playground for his autograph. It was like a major film star had turned up.

    Just? watched all 6 episodes back to back. This was on when I was still at school. I’m only sorry we never got to see the mad ned Harper and Ruth Fowler off Eastenders get there comeuppance. And The boy who played Charlie wasn’t exactly from the East end of Glasgow, was he ? But still enjoyed it all the same.
    Ps. Saw David McKay in Minnesotta Fats a few years ago where he done Sex Pistols My Way on kareoke.

    Tom was the wee guy with the glasses 🙂 I’m now a musician. I didn’t pursue a career in acting as I had other plans, but I sometimes wish I had as it was great? fun. The summer of 1984 was one of the best of my life.

  10. colshythecomedian says:

    which one was Tom? The little kid? What? are you doing now? I often watch these old programmes and wonder what the people who are in them are doing now. I am genuinely interested. Thanx 🙂
