Surprised me how good this was.
2 April 2007 | by Nevis-1See all my reviews

I normally don't like the "soppy" "feel-good" shows, but this was very well done. Jessie Wallace (of EastEnders fame)who plays Candy Jerome, was exceptional. I did realize she could act somewhat, but not on this level...she was wonderful, and very convincing in her role.

Jessie's co-star, Nathaniel Parker who plays Headmaster Anthony Troth is also brilliant in this show, but it took me awhile to get his most famous role, Inspector Lynley out of my head. He plays the POSH head, so he has all the airs and graces of Lynley, but his association with, Candy Jerome is quite out of character.

Very touching show that displays the faults of the British school system, along with it's good points too. A Class Apart also demonstrates that while the "English Class" system is "officialy" dead, in everyday society, it is alive and kicking.

If you are a Jessie Wallace aka "Kat Slater" fan, this is well worth a watch. The Kat is back in all her EastEnders glory in this show!
