Excellent series
4 December 2001 | by See all my reviews

There aren't many epsiodes and they aren't on the telly very often, but this is one of the best series out there dealing with school life from the teachers' perspective.

I like Lenny Henry's work as a comedian but this show proves he can easily make the transition to serious drama. The supporting cast are wonderful and the writers aren't afraid to make unexpected changes in direction. There are surprises, both pleasant and unpleasant, and this is one of the areas it shines because it lends an air of credibility lacking in many shows.

If you liked "To Sir With Love", give this one a go... I know you'll like it.
