Product Description

All eight episodes from the fifth series of the teen comedy drama following the chaotic lives and loves of a group of hard-partying college students. In this series, autumn term has begun at Roundview, and a new set of sixth-formers are introduced. Prissy queen-bee Mini (Freya Mavor) is instantly determined to make the life of oddball Franky (Dakota Blue Richards) a living hell. After enlisting her friends Liv and Grace (Laya Lewis and Jessica Sula), and boyfriend Nick (Sean Teale) to launch a smear campaign against her, Mini is less than impressed when Grace jumps ship and sticks up for the new girl. The priapic Alo (Will Merrick) is only interested in girls, while his best friend Rich (Alexander Arnold) is too into his 'heavy metal' exterior to lower himself to 'mainstream' chicks. The episodes comprise: 'Franky', 'Rich', 'Mini', 'Liv', 'Nick', 'Alo', 'Grace' and 'Everyone'.


Channel 4's critically-acclaimed drama SKINS enters its fifth series following the angst-ridden lives of its teenage characters, as they grapple with adolescence. This series introduces the third generation of sixth formers; a once again, eclectic mix of characters. Dakota Blue Richards (THE GOLDEN COMPASS) stars as Franky, who automatically sets herself up as an outsider when she joins the school three weeks late. As Mini, Liv and Grace do their best to both help and hinder her settling in period, we also meet the new boys Alo, Rich, Nick, and Matty. Expect plenty more bitching, backstabbing, and general angst-ridden behaviour in this, the complete fifth series.

Special features include:
  • Audio commentaries
  • Behind the scenes featurette

4.0 out of 5 stars Don't judge it by the first two episodes! 11 Feb 2011
I must say I am completely eating my words! This is the second review I have left for this, and I am proud to say I am wrong! I did not like the beginning of this series, at all! However we are now nearing the end of this series and it really has vastly improved. The acting has got better and the writing is back on top form, still the worst series when it comes to Skins but a still a very good series!

5.0 out of 5 stars fantastic 7 Feb 2011
Very good series once again only saw the first couple of episodes but from what i have seen i think this series is only gonna get better people are still saying this isn't as good as the first series but thats because the first series was brand new and we weren't use to it even the second series of skins wasn't as good as the first but still that series was wicked same as this one very good new set of characters same as with all skins lots of sex drugs violence and fantastic scenarios this deserves 5 stars absolutely epic

5.0 out of 5 stars Dreamy, optimistic and exciting 12 Jan 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I loved every series of Skins, this one is the only series that left me a positive energy and joy after the final episode. All characters evolve and change for the better, soundtrack is at its best, as photography and direction. A general dissatisfaction might depend on the fact that a new generation starts for the second time and it's always a bit difficult for some nostalgics of the previous characters.

2.0 out of 5 stars Skins has lost itself 16 Nov 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
When the first two series of Skins had came to an end, I actually felt very sad to see the original cast go. Series 3/4 was surprisingly better than I expected but you could see it was taking a darker route. This series proved Skins had well and truly ran its course and it was no surprise that series 6 would be its last.
The cast feel very unlikable and annoying, so much so that it almost feels deliberate. The shock factor that has gradually gotten more intense over the last 4 series completely goes through the roof - and not in a good way. All this series seems to promote is that all teenagers are drug taking, drinking, sex-mad idiots - very unrealistic to actual reality (in most cases). I know that the last few series' were full of this too, but the difference was you felt there was much more to the characters than just that. This cast also seems devoid of any acting ability.
On a positive note, I think the next series is a little better but you have to get through this one first so I guess it will be worth it in the end.

Was happy to find this available on here as most shops don't sell this. I liked watching the series on tv so was happy to get this to rewatch whenever I like.

This one seamed to move away from the first series as the actors nearly all changed, however you soon accepted all the new characters and it was entertaining once again.
