Byker Grove was getting there, but Waterloo Road puts the icing on the cake.
Originally commissioned for the BBC in 2006 it seemed no one was really prepared for the success story that would follow the tales, trials and tribulations of students and staff at the now famous Rochdale Comprehensive School.
If any proof be needed relating to its longevity then six million fans will not be disappointed that series six is now back on our television screens.
As this new series presents itself on our home screens, Acorn Media is proud to announce the DVD release of Waterloo Road Series Five (Spring Term) which sees another eventful term with a schoolgirl’s crush that can damage a teacher’s career, a teacher’s anti-depression addiction, and a new student arrives who has been kicked out of more schools than he’s eaten hot dinners.
Great drama with some of the best actors around including Denise Welch, Eva Pope, Elizabeth Berrington, Jack McMullen and Zaraah Abrahams all having graced our televison screens with appearances in other classics from Coronation Street through to Dancing On Ice.
If it’s great drama with controversial issues that takes your fancy, then treat yourself to this three-disc box set which is available now in most good stores.
As an added bonus there are special features which include cast and crew interviews, outtakes, deleted scenes, Waterloo Road cribs and subtitles.
With a total running time of around five hundred and thirty four minutes it will be sheer enjoyment for those dark cold nights that are on the way.
