Series cast summary:
Emily Corrie ...
Orlando Wells ...
Ben Waters ...


Six London school kids are best friends. Gorgeous Alex is academically gifted, comes from a good home, has the fine taste of a classy gay boy and proves able to date good catches, including a cop who could have been the love of his life if he hadn't lied about being a minor. Jamie Collier is the clown of the pack, a hopeless optimist, bragger and unreliable, but he means well and tries hard to please. Robert 'Rob' Conway is the most serious one, coming from a broken home with an abusive father, and has to work as a waiter in the gang's favorite pub. Finally there are three neurotic girls they hang out with: pushy Nicki Sutton, hippie rebel Suzanne 'Sooz' Lee and spoiled Sasha Williams, as well as a long list of boy- and girlfriends who come and go, although some have definite long-term potential, such as Alex's gay cop friend Dan Parker who sadly can't risk being find out legally 'raping' a willing minor.

Allen Rissbrook: So here's how I see it. You're almost a teacher, and I'm pretty much a student. So it'd be a really bad idea if you kissed me.
Alexander 'Alex' Stanton: What?
Allen Rissbrook: It'd be like crossing a line.
Alexander 'Alex' Stanton: Yeah, and that's precisely why I'm NOT gonna do it.
Allen Rissbrook: No, but I can SAY ya did. Yeah?
Alexander 'Alex' Stanton: Are you threatening me? When I can tell them that you were sitting in here, underage...

best program ever!!
4 August 2004 | by See all my reviews

as if is a really cool program. the story lines are much more interesting than normal soap like programs. they focus on things relevant to teenager life and how to deal with them and how not to deal with them. i have only been watching this program over the last few weeks but i am already hooked. the characters are all great and have different personalities which makes the show more interesting because of their conflicts and arguments. this is the best program i have seen in a long while and if you haven't seen it i definitely recommend you watch it because its just great!!!!! i love this program so much and i am making sure that all my friends are watching it bcos it is 1 not to be missed.!!!
