Top class !!!

A fantastic 6 part series that really made me and "other people" laugh out loud....It is set at Greybridge school which is run by "headmistress" Ms Baron (Frances De La Tour)who Loves to confiscate the alcohol from her pupils so that she can drink it.
The story is mainly about a chemistry teacher Mr church (David Walliams), and Mr Gunn (Philip Glenister) who compete with each other for Miss Postern (Catherine Tate)to go out with them which creates some really funny moments.
There is also some other great actors in this series as well...the "down trodden" constantly depressed Mr Barber (Steve Spiers) who plays a geography teacher, and Mr Martin (Daniel Rigby) the music teacher who dreams of becoming a rock star.
Every episode opens with Mr church demonstrating an "amazing" experiment to his bored pupils who are totally un-impressed by them, and this really sets the scene for each episode.
The extras on the dvd are really good and some of them should have been kept in especially when Miss Postern explains to the class that when she puts a beret on her head it makes her French and when she takes it of she is English again.....there are also some good commentaries to listen to as well from David Walliams and the Dawson brothers for episode 1 and 6 and also for the deleted scenes.
I cannot recommend this dvd enough...as it is hilarious !!!
