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.
