Waterloo Road is the prime example of British drama at its best, and this series was no exception. All the familiar faces you'd want to see are still there, along with some new faces, who merge with the 'old guard' perfectly. Jaye Jacobs fits in well as the likeable new science teacher Sian, and new pupils Phoenix and Harley Taylor give life to the current line-up of students.
My main aim in this review, however, is to sing the praises of Alec Newman, who plays new Headteacher Michael Byrne to perfection. Coming in as a new Head after the very popular Karen Fisher was never going to be easy, especially as Mr Byrne doesn't exactly make life easy for himself in these beginning few episodes, but Mr Newman's performance kept me hooked throughout this new series, and I can't wait for the rest of series 7, and the very exciting sounding series 8! Good work everyone on Waterloo Road!
