Product Description

'...absolutely properly hilarious. Funniest thing for ages.' The Guaridian

'A class act.' The Independent

Bad Education, written by and starring Jack Whitehall, follows Alfie Wickers the worst teacher to ever (dis)grace the British Education System, and a bigger kid than the pupils he teaches. Abbey Grove School is populated by some of the weirdest teachers you could ever meet: Fraser (Mathew Horne) the hair-brained Headmaster who longs to be down with the kids, Miss Gulliver (Sarah Solemani) the biology teacher with a heart of gold but perhaps a dash too much openness and honesty, Miss Mollinson (Leila Hoffman) the happily swinging Head of Maths who won’t let her hip-replacement get in the way and Deputy Headmistress Miss Pickwell (Michelle Gomez) who displays all the charm and sensitivity of a Third Reich Dominatrix.

Alfie’s class is Form K, a bunch of misfits that have been written off by the rest of the school, but Alfi e can’t help but see a bit of himself in them. This is about a class of kids and their teacher’s quest to get through life and get the best results with the minimum amount of effort possible. Sadly it’s not an equation that always adds up. From disastrous parents’ evenings to cringe-worthy sex-education lessons to life-threatening self-defence classes to school elections full of dirty tricks and a school trip to see a rhino-pig; Bad Education is school life as you’ve never seen it before.

When I first heard Jack Whitehall was writing his own sitcom I didn't know what to think. Sure, the man is very talented, but he is still quite new to the comedy scene and I wasn't sure if he was yet up to the task of writing an entire comedy series himself. But to be fair to the man, he's pulled it off with style. The show can be absolutely hilarious at times and even more importantly, the characters are actually likeable and you care about what happens to them. Jacks character, Alfie, despite being a complete tool at times, has a good heart and you sometimes even feel bad for him when his schemes go awry. Matthew Horne is also fantastic as Frasier, the schools headmaster who thinks he's down with the kids and is constantly giving Alfie misguided advice on how to handle his students.
Speaking of the students, if the show does have one flaw, it's that the students(as likeable as they are) can seem a bit unrealistic at times, almost like they exist purely for the shows script to work. For instance, the Asian student frequently shouts insults at Alfie in her native tongue, which Alfie then interprets as meaning something else. The joke is used way too frequently and becomes tiring after awhile. That said, the cast of students are quite memorable despite how stereotypical some of them are. (The gay student, the disabled kid etc. )
All in all however, it is a really good show that hopefully in time can turn into an excellent one. It's not full of swearing, it doesn't need to make fun of others for it's laughs and it has a surprisingly big heart. Don't get me wrong though, all that stuff can be great, as the inbetweeners and others have proven. It's just nice to see a comedy in this day and age that doesn't need to be overly offensive to get it's laughs.

For anyone who has yet to see Bad Education, where on Earth have you been hiding? A relatively new BBC3 comedy that I am sure will be around for some time, focuses on a newly qualified teacher in a secondary school, with a class of typical 15 year old pupils. What makes this so funny and 'likable' is the fact that the teacher (Alfie Wickers - Jack Whitehall) seems to switch from being bumbling and pathetic, saying the wrong things and portraying himself as a useless and offensive teacher, yet at times shows that he genuinely cares for his students. In his own, almost always incorrect way, he's trying to help.

There are several undercurrents in the show, one being Alfie being almost obsessed with Biology teacher Rosie (Sarah Solemani) and is always trying to either impress her or get her to go out with him, which currently is failing miserably. The head teacher Fraser (Matthew Horne - Gavin & Stacey) is almost useless as the head of such an inner city school. He fails to control any issue, usually makes it worse and the cringing I do watching almost reminds me of the cringing I did while watching Ricky Gervais in The Office.

The students nearly always, along with Jack, steal the show. Nikki Runeckles who plays Chantelle Parsons, according to a recent survey on the Facebook page, is the most likable student. She is obsessed with her teacher, continually fantasizing about being his girlfriend and is played remarkably well by Nikki. The other students seem to have their own continuing story line, the typical 'hard' lad, the disabled lad in a wheelchair, the gay student, the foreign student et al

My only small, minor gripe is the head teacher Fraser needs some better material to work with.

By Brit Boy TOP 500 REVIEWER on 1 Mar. 2015
Format: DVD
I am a great fan of Jack Whitehall, and in 'Bad Education', he stars as Alfie Wickers, a young history teacher who wears the unenviable tag around his neck of 'the worst teacher ever to grace the British education system', and he's undoubtedly a much bigger child than those unruly 15 year olds that he teaches in his class. The group of school kids are diverse, albeit stereotypical, lovable and generally very easy to relate. There's the teacher's pet, the tough guy, the flirty girl, the homosexual lad, the lass with a temper, etc, etc.

Alfie constantly tries to impress his first crush, the bisexual science teacher Rosie Gulliver (Sarah Solemani) by attempting to appear 'cool', but failing miserably. He has at least however found ways of dealing with the school's eccentric headmaster Shaquille Fraser (portrayed by the brilliant Matthew Horne), who constantly embarrasses his staff and is generally just as unsuitable as Alfie for his high profession in just about every way possible. With a great cast of comedy talent, hilarious scripts by Jack and two other writers, plenty of charm and more than a little crudeness, 'Bad Education' is just an instantly likeable show. I was a fan within the first five minutes of episode one. It's very addictive, and with the DVD releases at least you don't have to wait a week to see the next instalment.

BBC Three is a channel which really doesn't have the best track record in the world of giving their viewers a great sitcom, but 'Bad Education' is one of those exceptions I think. It's a must see for Jack Whitehall fans, or any fan of modern British comedy. Not only can this relatively new funny man act, albeit always playing rather similar parts, he's also a top comedy writer. As well as the complete first series, the DVD includes some worthwhile extras such as video diaries and a 'making of'.
