Teachers gets better and better
8 July 2003 | by lynnerogers76See all my reviews

David Clayton is WRONG! I loved series 1 of Teachers, but by the end I did feel a little bit "Simon"-ed out, and was worried how the show would sustain itself. I shouldn't have worried - because what we got was an infinitely better Series 2. Where characters who we'd got to know in relationship to Simon, slowly through Series 1, really came into their own - and facets of their characters that were only touched on were really allowed to flourish.

I liked the way Andrew Lincoln left the series (not your usual cliched stuff, but nicely underplayed) - I found it moving, but not over-cooked. You were sad to see him go, but knew that the world (and the series) would survive without him. Contrary to what David said, I got the impression that it had been really well built to. And it seems much more true to life to me this way. People do drift in and out of our lives - and whilst the idea is always horrible, it's amazing how the gaps they leave heal up.

I thought series 2 was better, funnier and more real. And I thought the pupil stories were better. The kids seemed smarter, not quite so contrived (like adults imagining kids) - more kid like. Overall, for me, series 2 is where Teachers really took off.
