Waterloo Road is an award-winning British television drama series, first broadcast in the United Kingdom on BBC One on 9 March 2006. Set in a troubled comprehensive school in Rochdale, Greater Manchester, the series focuses on the lives of the school's teacher and students, and confronts social issues, including affairs, abortion, divorce, cancer and suicide.

Waterloo Road is produced by Shed Productions, the company responsible for Bad Girls and Footballers' Wives.[1]

History

An eight-part first series was made in the second half of 2005 and aired in early 2006. The TV drama was then recommissioned for a second series.[2]

The second series finished airing on 26 April 2007. Series 3 began on 11 October 2007 on BBC One, except on BBC One Scotland, where the series began four days earlier. Series 3 paused from airing for the Christmas break. Episodes halted in England, Wales and Northern Ireland with the end-of-year cliffhanger on 13 December 2007 (16 December 2007 in Scotland). Episodes resumed airing in Scotland on 6 January 2008 and in England, Wales and Northern Ireland on 10 January 2008. The series finale aired on BBC One on Thursday, 13 March 2008, apart from Scotland (17 March 2008).

Series 4 began on BBC One on Wednesday, 7 January 2009, achieving on average 4-5 million viewers per episode. A fifth series began airing from 28 October 2009 on BBC One.[3]

Following a Christmas and Easter break, Series 5 resumed on Wednesday, 7 April 2010. Due to the election coverage in early May 2010 on BBC One over-running, Waterloo Road was replaced for two weeks by Holby City. The series resumed once more on 26 May 2010, but was delayed once again due to the World Cup. The final two episodes aired on 14 and 15 July.

Filming of a sixth series began on 9 November 2009 and was completed on 7 May 2010.[4] A seventh series was commissioned in April 2010 and was later expanded to thirty episodes, which began airing in May 2011.[5] Fifty episodes to air over two series have been commissioned for the show's new location in Scotland, bringing the total number of episodes to 180.[6]

Waterloo Road won "Most Popular Drama" at the 2011 National Television Awards, ending Doctor Who's five-year consecutive hold on the award.

Setting

The series is set in and around Waterloo Road, a fictional school for students aged 11 to 18, a comprehensive in Rochdale in series 1 to 7 and an independent in Scotland thereafter.[6] At the opening of the series the school was notorious for being "on the scrapheap" with poorly-behaved students and poor-quality teachers, but each head has strived to prove the school better than its reputation and it has passed mulitple inspections to stay open across the years.

Cast

Guides

Series 1 (2006)

The first episode of Waterloo Road was broadcast on 9 March 2006, having been filmed the previous autumn. Characters included headmaster Jack Rimmer (played by Jason Merrells), deputy head Andrew Treneman (played by Jamie Glover) and pastoral care teacher Kim Campbell (played by Angela Griffin).

A common theme throughout Series One was the threat of the school's closure by the governors owing to a lack of pupils and the bad publicity it had been receiving prior to Jack's appointment as headmaster. Rimmer, formerly deputy head, became headmaster when the previous head Brian Vasey had a nervous breakdown after 30 years at the school.

Other storylines included the death of pupil Adam Deardon in a car crash. Donte Charles blamed himself for Deardon's death and was remanded into custody. The series also focused upon the behaviour of troubled pupil Lewis Seddon, culminating in his engaging in inappropriate sexual behaviour towards teacher Kim Campbell. Another important theme of the series was the break-up of Tom and Lorna Clarkson's short-lived marriage, and the LEA's decision to keep Waterloo Road open.

The final moments of the series see Lorna taking a step towards the edge of a canal.

Series 2 (2007)

Series 2 of Waterloo Road featured 12 episodes. The first episode of the second series featured a number of new main characters: pupil Brett Aspinall (played by Tom Payne), sponsor governor Roger Aspinall (played by Nick Sidi) and school secretary Davina Shackleton (played by Christine Tremarco).

Series 2 began airing on BBC One Scotland on 14 January 2007 and in the rest of the UK on 18 January 2007.[7]

The audience learns that Lorna has survived what was portrayed as an attempted suicide at the end of series 1. As the series progresses, however, it becomes obvious that her troubles are far from over. Meanwhile, Tom and Izzie were expecting their first child together, until Izzie loses the baby after falling over during an argument with Lorna. After a period of manipulative and attention-seeking behaviour on the part of Lorna, she realises that she and Tom were not meant to be together. Lorna is diagnosed with Multiple sclerosis and her life becomes even more stressful.

She re-unites Izzie and Tom, before committing suicide rather than living with MS. In the last episode of the second series, Izzie sees Jack being attacked, but then gets stabbed herself. With only Jack there with her, and no one around, viewers are left not knowing whether Izzie has lived or died.[8]

Other notable storylines in series 2 included the arrival and departure of prospective sponsor governors Jerry Preston and Roger Aspinall, drug-dealing by Gemma and Jed Seddon, the alcoholism of trainee teacher Russell Millen, and the bullying of Mika Grainger by fellow-pupil Leigh-Ann Galloway.

A portion of the soundtrack in series two was provided by Cornish band, Thirteen Senses.

In final moments of this series, Izzie was left stabbed in the carpark with Jack.

Series 3 (2007–08)

The third, 20-part series began in October 2007 with several new characters including a new deputy head teacher played by Neil Morrissey and, by episode seven, a new headmistress played by Eva Pope.[9]

The series began with headmaster Jack Rimmer recording a radio documentary featuring the death of his colleague Izzie Redpath (played by Jill Halfpenny). Jack had witnessed Izzie's stabbing at the very end of the previous series, although it had not been revealed that she had died.

With Andrew Treneman gone, having accepted a teaching post in Rwanda, Eddie (played by Neil Morrissey) became the deputy head. Rimmer resigned as head teacher in episode 6 due to misuse of the school budget. He was succeeded by Rachel Mason.

The second half of the third series began on 10 January 2008. The third series finale aired on 13 March 2008 in most of the UK. Scotland was running three days behind due to a football league event, and was 2 episodes behind. In week beginning 10 March, two episodes aired. In the second half of series 3, Davina Shackleton was accused of having a sexual relationship with a pupil and was then forced to date the pupil's father, only for her to be saved by Tom Clarkson.

The London-based band Athlete have had various tracks from the 2008-released album Beyond the Neighbourhood featured in Series 3.

The final episode attracted 6 million viewers.[10]

In the final episode of Series 3, a fire spread through the school. Davina Shackleton was rushed to hospital with smoke inhalation, while Rachel Mason and Stuart Hordley (the contractor that was going to build Rachel's new building, whose careless disposal of a cigarette had started the blaze) were trapped under falling rubble inside the school.

Series 4 (2009)

The 20-part fourth series was commissioned in December 2007. The series began on BBC One on Wednesday 7 January 2009, with the show's first 90-minute opening episode.

Rachel Mason (played by Eva Pope) and Davina Shackleton (played by Christine Tremarco) return following the fire that nearly destroyed the school. Examples of characters from the previous series who have left the school include: Mika Grainger, Brett Aspinall (both of whom left for University having graduated) and Celine Dixon. The fate of Stuart Hordley is left unanswered.

The fourth series introduces several new characters who become focal points of the subsequent episodes. For example, the Kelly family seems to be the epitome of the 'Family from Hell' and consists of an alcoholic mother Rose Kelly and her five children: eldest son Marley, borderline psychopath Earl, daughter Sambuca, 11-year-old Denzil, and baby Prince. New Head of PE Rob Cleaver begins a relationship with English teacher Jasmine Koreshi and becomes the boxing mentor of pupil Bolton Smilie. He is later sacked by Rachel and Eddie Lawson when it transpires he is giving Bolton pills in order to help him win an important match, ultimately ending his and Jasmine's relationship. Rachel Mason's sister Melissa Ryan and her son Philip are also introduced. Maxine Barlow is tragically killed when her relationship with psychotic Earl Kelly comes to an explosive end, and she is fatally shot. Realising she had made a huge mistake in ever trusting him, she dies in the arms of those who loved her most, Steph and Janeece.[11]

Former teacher Kim Campbell (played by Angela Griffin) returns from Rwanda in episode 11 and brings with her a baby girl, Grace, who she claims is her daughter. However, after immigration officers investigate, it transpires that Kim has in fact smuggled Grace into the UK illegally. Former Deputy Head Andrew Treneman (played by Jamie Glover) makes a brief return in episodes 19 and 20 during a Rwandan fundraising day being held at the school, and is reunited with Kim.[12]

Chlo Grainger gives birth to a baby girl, Izzy.

The series also marked the exit of long-term characters Davina Shackleton, Donte Charles, Chlo Grainger and Janeece Bryant. Marley Kelley (Luke Bailey), Eddie Lawson (Neil Morrissey), Matt Wilding (Chris Geere), Flick Mellor (Sadie Pickering), Jasmine Koreshi (Shabana Bakhsh) and Andrew Treneman (Jamie Glover) also made their final appearances in episode 20. The final episode aired on 20 May 2009 and attracted 4.5 million viewers.[13]

Series 5 (2009–10)

In March 2009 Shed Media confirmed that a 20-part fifth series had been commissioned by the BBC. The new commission will bring the total number of episodes to 80.[3] Filming began on 11 May 2009 and the series began airing on Wednesday 28 October (Sunday 25 October on BBC One Scotland). For the first time, the series was also filmed in HD.[14]

Series 5 follows the merger of Waterloo Road with the local posh, private school - John Fosters. The current Head Teacher, Rachel Mason, and newly appointed executive Head Teacher, Max Tyler (played by Tom Chambers), immediately clash, causing a lot of tension, especially when Max takes the liberty of using Rachel's office. It isn't just the tension in the Heads' office that is brewing, the rivalry in the playground as well as the staffroom is unimaginable. Six new teachers from John Fosters transferred to Waterloo Road to support the merger, much to the disapproval of snobby John Fosters and new Food Technology teacher Ruby Fry (Elizabeth Berrington), and to the immediate shock of hopeless newly-qualified teacher, Helen Hopewell (Vinette Robinson), whom the pupils, and some staff, soon label 'Hopeless Hopewell.' Other John Fosters staff transfers include New Deputy Head and Science teacher Christopher Mead (William Ash) and Head of Modern Languages Jo Lipsett (Sarah-Jane Potts). A mix of new pupils also soon make their mark with their obvious disapproval of Waterloo Road and its existing pupils and staff, causing fights amongst both. This is a new term for Waterloo Road, with many challenges for both staff and students, not all of whom will cope.

Episode 8 marks the departure of hopeless English teacher Helen Hopewell, who takes it upon herself to leave after realising that her bribery of the students to ensure their good behaviour during her teaching inspection will result in her sacking. Before she took her undignified leave from Waterloo Road, Helen left Rachel a computer disc, proving that Max had taken her on not just "for being a good student", but also because they had had a fling. Max Tyler's increasingly desperate attempts to control the school eventually result in the end of his teaching career. After he brutally shoves Rachel's nephew, Philip Ryan, against a filing cabinet (in episode 9), resulting in an extremely large and painful-looking bruise on his back, Philip struggles to keep quiet. Shocked by Philip's bruise, Ruby Fry mentions it to Kim Campbell (who incidentally is having an affair with Max). Eventually, Philip admits how he received his injury. Max is fired much to the delight of the staff and pupils. Rachel and Chris also kiss in Episode 10. When Waterloo Road came back on air 3 months later, in Episode 11 Kim Campbell announces that she is pregnant with Max's baby. New students are introduced in Episode 11 (Bianka), 12 (Craig) and 13 (Aidan). Adam Fleet arrives, an old friend of Rachel and he later proposes to her, whilst Steph starts dating Chris' father, Oliver. The main storyline throughout the second half of Series 5 is Finn Sharkey, an unruly pupil who causes havoc. He graffitis the staffroom, does drugs and forces Amy to deface a valuable painting in Episode 18. In Episode 16, after Finn has done drugs with Amy and Josh, Josh spikes Tom's dinner and when he later drives Kim to the hospital, he hallucinates and crashes, although they both survive, including Kim's baby. In Episode 17, Jo Lipsett is suspended for acting inappropriately when student Ros McCain reveals she loves her, whilst Ruby Fry is on medication for the majority for the series. In episode 15 Bolton Smilie and Sam Kelly kiss but Bolton ignores Sam afterwards.

Long serving characters Steph Haydock (Denise Welsh), Kim Campbell (Angela Griffin), Rachel Mason (Eva Pope), Paul Langley (Thomas Milner), Karla Bentham (Jessica Baglow), Danielle Harker (Lucy Dixon), Aleesha Dillon (Lauren Thomas), Bolton Smilie (Tachia Newall) and Michaela White (Zaraah Abrahams), as well as Philip Ryan (Dean Smith), Siobhan Mailey (Phoebe Dynevor) and Jo Lipsett (Sarah-Jane Potts) left at the end of Series 5.

The last episode aired on 15 July 2010 with a strong audience of 4.5m.[15]

Series 6 (2010–11)

Production and filming for the 20-part sixth series started on 9 November 2009 and finished in May 2010. The series started airing on BBC One from 1 September, with the second episode following the next day with a strong audience of 5.1m.[16] Former Silent Witness actress Amanda Burton joined the cast as new headteacher, Karen Fisher.[17] Linzey Cocker plays alongside Burton as on-screen daughter, Jess Fisher and Ceallach Spellman will play as her on-screen son, Harry Fisher[18] Coronation Street actor Lucien Laviscount has been cast as Jonah Kirby.[19] Chelsee Healey (Janeece Bryant) also reprised her role, not as a pupil, but as the new school secretary.[20] Janeece Bryant returns to the school pregnant. At first, she appears pleased with the fact that she is going to have a baby. In episode 3, however, she reveals to Tom that she does not want her baby. Episode 4 reveals that John and Ruby have been trying desperately for a baby. Janeece approaches them and the three make plans to adopt Janeece's baby when it is born.

Other notable storylines include Tom's son Josh Stevenson revealing in the 4th episode that he is gay. The event which sparks Josh's actions was when he tried to kiss his best friend Finn Sharkey and Finn was less than pleased with Josh's behaviour. When Janeece gives birth to her daughter in the toilets in episode 7, she gives the baby to Ruby and John. Janeece later regrets her decision and in episode 8 she is adamant that she wants her baby back. As a consequence of the fact that Ruby now views herself as the baby's mother, she ignores Janeece's requests.

Steph Haydock returns in Episode 9 and displays her compassionate side when she assists Grantly with his wife Fleur whose mental health is declining rapidly. Jonah also discovers his girlfriend Jess Fisher's fling with science teacher Chris Mead. He is further infuriated when he witnesses her flirting with him. Episode 10 features Grantly placing Fleur in a nursing home after realising that he cannot continue to provide for his wife's high level of need. The episode also reveals that due to Grantly's issues with Fleur he has been teaching his A-level English class the wrong syllabus, leading to angry parents phoning up the school and Karen having to bear the brunt of all the anger. Jess also finds her missing sister Bex, who appears in their home to collect some belongings. Just as Jess persuades Bex to stay, Bex walks into her room to find it empty as if she has died. Bex therefore leaves until the last minute and returns to Karen's office. The episode is then left on a cliff hanger.

In episode 11 Karen introduced a separate sex classes policy which didn't go down well with the new head of pastoral care, Adanna. Episode 12 saw Janeece become involved with a pupil Billie Taylor, who claimed her mother was trying to steal her baby. The main story during the spring term was the relationship which developed between Cesca and Jonah. This was revealed in episode 19 and Cesca was arrested. In episode 20 she was released on bail, so she and Jonah drove to Gretna Green to get married; she was arrested after the ceremony. Adanna meanwhile tried to unite the sexes with the school production "Cinderfeller" which didn't go according to plan.

On 21 December 2009, it was announced that former Coronation Street actress Tina O'Brien had been cast as Bex Fisher. It was later announced on 18 February 2010 that Britain's Got Talent winner George Sampson would be joining the cast as a new Year 11 student, Kyle Stack. His scenes are expected to air in the second half of the series.[21]

Spandau Ballet member and former EastEnders actor Martin Kemp guest starred as a character named Mr. Burley in episode 5,[22] and Karen David portrays new regular Spanish Teacher, Francesca Montoya.[23]

Sharlene Whyte also joined the cast as new Head of Pastoral Care, Adanna Lawal from episode 11.[24]

Wil Johnson portrays new Geography teacher, Marcus Kirby. He will be joined by Anna Jobarteh, who plays his daughter and new pupil, Ruth. In episode 1, Ruth felt more comfortable with home-schooling and took matters into her own hands by running away.Ben-Ryan Davies plays new pupil, Ronan Burley.[25] Elaine Symons also reprised her role as Rose Kelly in episode six. This will be Ruby's last series portrayed by Elizabeth Berrington.[26] It will also be the only series that Marcus Kirby (Wil Johnson), Jonah Kirby (Lucien Laviscount) and Ruth Kirby (Anna Jobarteh) star in. Also from episode 11 Scott Haining will play Nate Gurney who becomes Josh Stevenson's boyfriend.[27] The series was filmed in HD.

The series took a mid-term break from 27 October 2010 and resumed with episodes 11-20 beginning on 2 February 2011[23][28] The series ended on Wednesday 6 April 2011.

Series 6 saw the last appearances of Francesca Montoya (Karen David), Ruby Fry (Elizabeth Berrington), Jonah Kirby (Lucien Laviscount), Ruth Kirby (Anna Jobereth), Marcus Kirby (Wil Johnson), Adanna Lawal (Sharlene Whyte) and Nate Gurney (Scott Haining).

Series 7 (2011–12)

A seventh series of 20 episodes was announced on 7 April 2010 after Shed Media announced their final results.[29] However, only 10 episodes were filmed due to the difficulty of shooting during the winter months.[30] These episodes were broadcast from 4 May 2011, four weeks after series 6 ended, airing in addition to the standard twenty episodes that began on September 14.

Robson Green and Mark Benton join the cast as site manager Rob Scotcher and Maths teacher Daniel Chalk respecitvely. Oliver Lee appears as Rob's son Aiden, and Debra Stephenson as his estranged wife Naomi for four episodes. Poppy Jhakra also appears in the first ten episodes as English teacher Eleanor Chaudry. Other new regular pupils include twin actresses Millie and Hope Katana as Rhona and Shona Mansfield, and Katie McGlynn as Scout from episode 7.

The first block of episodes' storylines include teen pregnancy and child abuse, a pupil revealed as a murderer under police protection and the police being called because of drugs in the school. These events lead to Director of Education Richard Whitman (Nicholas Gleaves), aided by inside information from Eleanor, seeking the school's closure and in particular Karen's dismissal. Other plots include the death of Sambuca Kelly from cancer, Vicki and Jess both becoming pregnant by Aiden, and the relationship between Karen and Rob. Eventually the staff and pupils' loyalty saves the school from closure, but Karen's future remains in doubt. Chris also decides to leave the teaching profession after his determination to help Scout causes further trouble for Karen, and Rob resigns as site manager after becoming a qualified teacher.

Alec Newman plays new headmaster Michael Byrne from the second block of episodes, with Alex Walkinshaw and Jaye Jacobs as newly-married teachers Jez and Sian Diamond, the latter of whom is appointed deputy headteacher with Tom. Paul Nicholls was initially cast as Jez, but was released from his contract after three days of filming due to personal problems affecting shooting.[31] Chris Geere also rejoins the cast, his character Matt Wilding returning to Waterloo Road on Michael's request to reinvigorate the music and drama departments, and Sarah Hadland plays new Head of English Linda Radleigh from episode 13. New pupils include Phoenix and Harley Taylor (Kaya Moore and Kane Tomlinson-Weaver), Tariq and Trudi Siddiqui (Naveed Choudhry and Aryana Ramkhalawon), and Jez's children Madeline and Zack Diamond (Georgia Henshaw and Lee Abbate) from episode 12. Shifaa Arfan plays Tariq and Trudi's younger sister Naseem from episode 21.[32][33][34] Rob Haythorne also appears as Wayne Johnson, a pupil from Michael's last school who is acquitted of attempted murder after attacking him, and John Thomson plays Nelson Smith, the father of the Taylors.

Storylines in the second block of episodes revolve around Michael's personal problems, and his struggle to gain support from the school's staff and pupils. Having recovered from the stabbing he suffered at his previous school he attempts to reunite with former partner Sian, despite the presence of her new husband in the school. His problems heighten after a confrontation with his attacker Wayne, culminating in the latter being run over and left in a coma. Michael then finds himself anonymously harassed by both Phoenix, who witnessed the incident, and Linda, who initiates a hate campaign on Michael after he ends their brief relationship. Sian decides to leave Jez and starts an affair with Michael, but changes her mind after the affair becomes public. At the end of term, Michael makes his peace with Wayne and apologises to both staff and students to finally earn their respect; however, Linda runs him over with her car after her deception is uncovered. Elsewhere, Tom struggles with the pressure of his promotion to deputy head, Emily's deteriorating behaviour causes trouble for Scout, and Vicki and Ronan's relationship runs into difficulties in their final term at the school.

Guest stars in the series include Gemma Atkinson, Dominique Jackson, Alicya Eyo, Margi Clarke, Jodie Prenger, Lisa Riley, Tupele Dorgu, Tracy-Ann Oberman, Kai Owen and Jane Asher.

Future episodes (2012–14)

Series 7 will conclude with a "dramatic and explosive storyline", prompting the school (and the show's production) to relocate to Scotland for the eighth series. Fifty new episodes have been commissioned with filming due to commence in April 2012, due for broadcast over two years from autumn 2012.[6] A new set has been found based in Greenock, Scotland, 25 miles outside of Glasgow at the former Greenock Academy school.[35]
