Ten episodes from the third season of the BBC drama series set in a failing inner-city comprehensive. It's exam time at Waterloo Road, and it's not only the pupils who are being tested. Corruption is rife in the tendering process to build a new training centre at the school, with headteacher Rachel Mason (Eva Pope) coming under pressure from a blackmailing builder to secure his interest in the bid. What is the secret she's trying to hide - and how much will it cost the school?
This Spring Term set marks the second volume of episodes from the third series of the show that follows the trials and tribulations of both the students and teachers of an inner city state comprehensive.
I dont know what happen to WR but it went from a good show (series 1 and 2) to an AWESOME show (series 3 onwards! I think a lot of it has to do with Eva Pope who is just amazing as Rachel but the stories aswell, they became more compelling. There are lots of young talents in WR, many of them I really hope I get to see more of in the future (especially Ellie Paskell as Maxine and Chelsee Healey as Janeece)One other good thing about WR is that unlike most tv shows about schools this is something I can realate to, it reminds me of my old school.
Amazing Series & the boxsets are always great (especially the way in which the characters faces are always on the disc). I wasn't a huge fan of WR, until episode 7 of this Series when Eva Pope joined the cast as the amazing Rachel Mason and have watched it religiously ever since then - Waterloo Road just wouldn't be the same without her!
I've enjoyed all of the Waterloo Road series though, as a retired teacher, I find some aspects unrealistic. e.g. if you have to cover a lesson for an absent colleague, you don't have a choice. You do it. But the series is very entertaining and for me, compulsive viewing.
