U.K.’s Most Popular Drama Series

"Pure entertainment" -San Jose Mercury News

Seen on BBC America

High school = high drama

They struggle with tangled love lives, tough choices, and conflicting responsibilities-and that's just the teachers. In this hit British series, students and staff at a troubled school must learn lessons that can’t be taught from textbooks. Welcome to Waterloo Road, where every day is an education.

With the school facing imminent shutdown, new headmaster Jack Rimmer (Jason Merrells, Lark Rise to Candleford) recruits an Oxbridge-educated deputy head (Jamie Glover, Emma) to help him save it. But will student tragedies and staff conflicts doom their efforts from the start?

A talented ensemble cast delivers "spot-on" performances (Liverpool Daily Post, U.K.), mingling authenticity with conflict, danger, tension, and romance. From teen pregnancy to bullying, Waterloo Road confronts contemporary issues with sharp scripts, strong characters, and realistic dialogue, placing this bold serial drama at the top of its class.

5.0 out of 5 stars Waterloo Road. August 7, 2012
Format:DVD
This is one of the best UK dramas on DVD. I got my copy at Barns & Nobles last week. I'm not sure why it's still on Pre-Order on here. But it is a very gripping show. I don't wanna spoil anything for anyone. If you think high school students have drama you have not seen anything yet. The teachers may be worse. I could not stop watching it. Anyone that likes UK shows needs to see this! If you're not sure look it up on wikapedia & it might change your mind!

2.0 out of 5 stars There are better shows January 5, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This soap has what could be a great storyline, but the way it is presented is deplorable. The actors are not well-suited for their parts and it seems that their acting is forced. Also there is often a lot of noise in the background, so I found myself having to adjust the sound volume a lot.

2.0 out of 5 stars Superficial Soap December 26, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The characters make no sense, nor do their circumstances, nor do the way they resolve their dilemmas, and it takes much too long to cover any narrative territory. If the woman who had the abortion was so upset about having to take that decision, why did she do it, and what claim does she have on our sympathies given that she lies to her husband regularly? That bad a marriage is a problem rather than a drama, and given how awful the woman is, why doesn't her best friend run off with the husband? The idea that dividing a grammer school into competing groups as a way to improve education is laughable. These students are not interested in learning no matter how much they are begged to do so. Why bother? It might have played better as a farce about trying to improve schools rather than as a soap trying to come to grips with a social problem.
