In The Visitors, Ann Dodd says something to the effect of Lucas putting Mark under his arm and leaving after Margaret dies, which does sound like a much younger child.

Rhody:45875 wrote:Yes, I believe Mark was supposed to be 6 when she died.  Unfortunately, continuity does not seem to be one of the series' strong suits.   Probably because there were so many writers and they couldn't dream of the technology we have today to scrutinize every detail.  It is fun to do though isn't it?

But didn't he have to look after Mark when he was first born for little while? In one show didn't Lucas tell a bit more about his birth and that Margaret almost (we assume he was going to say) 'died' during the birth process.

Also I love in The Babysitter how Lucas thinks if she has another bottle her deck will be awash. All seems to compare a baby to a ship.

Love that story Lucas tells Mark about the cutest calf no bigger than a sack of beans was born. Mark asked what happened to the little calf and Lucas says it kept following him around so he put some clothes on it and sent it to school. Love Mark's face.
