Donnie Briscoe

School Days: 2006-2007

Donnie is a rogue who's not afraid to speak his mind. Outspoken and contentious, Donnie will say what he wants to who he wants - and it's not always to the right person!

Donnie is full of ignorance and prejudice; girls are an expendable commodity and Eleanor is the latest in a long line of conquests. Some of his opinions were commonly held thirty years ago but completely unacceptable now. He manages to get by at Grange Hill, although unable to learn from his mistakes. Donnie's uncompromising nature earns him few friends but still he manages to gain a lot of respect.


Year 12 Donnie dumps his girlfriend of two months, Eleanor. He makes racist implications about Karen and Taylor, leading to a confrontation with Abel in the changing rooms. Donnie loses friends fast and even Eleanor doesn't want to know when he creeps back to her. Donnie eggs Baz on to go all the way with Tanya.

Year 13 Donnie's world falls apart after the death of best mate Baz. He holds Togger solely responsible and vows to make him pay. Donnie takes advantage of Kathy's fragile emotional state; when she wakes up in his bed he denies any wrongdoing. At the end of the year, Donnie has initiated a memorial sports trophy in Baz's memory and sweeps aside previous bad feeling to present it to its first winner - Togger.

ASSOCIATES: Baz Wainwright, Eleanor Smith, Holly Parsons

CURRENT WHEREABOUTS: Now at sports college and doing it "for Baz".
