Storyline

Edgar is a nice, normal, clever 11-year-old - and he's had enough of being bullied. He organises the other children into a police force, and they set out to bring justice to the school. Their law-and-order game is such a success there are no more 'criminals'. But the story takes a sinister turn when an unpopular teacher publicly humiliates Edgar and he decides revenge is rightfully his. Written by GusF

An excellent plot, cleverly acted by the cast.
23 May 2003 | by See all my reviews

A sensitive issue tackled in the way television drama should tackle such issues. The young cast is excellent and handle the script perfectly. This is compulsive viewing for anyone interested in quality British drama involving children and school issues.
