I got into it last series --and am starting to get obsessed with crap soaps.

Anyone else in for a discussion thread?

So now we know why Bobby was left with Lucy, Jane is busy in the school.

If they are now Waterloo Academy, in a barn, will they be able to have a totally bonkers curriculum?

And even fewer pupils.

Ooooh, yaya. Waterloo Road is the only programme I regret not having a tv that I can watch live tv on. I adore it, it reminds me that life could be worse (teacher here!)

I hated the end of the last series but I thought that was the grand finale, I didn't know it was coming back. I really hope no main characters died sad I'm sure they did though. I bet Grantley survived and the dinner lady he was just about to live happily ever after with died (sobs!)

I will be stalking iplayer until I see it come up

Tonight people, tonight!!!!

They are not in barn, it may be Scotland but we're not that far behind!

In fact as Little Barn Owl said, they are in an old school which wasn't actually that old. As part of the Council programme of school building/refurbishment here there was a complete school that was offered to the production company.

It's bought the Council a bit of time as any re-development of this site is going to be difficult as it's in a conservation area.

I've never watched Waterloo Road before but will tonight as I want to see just how lovely the scenery is on the wee screen.

(Waves to Little Barn Owl!)

I love the way they can write and rehearse a full musical in about 10 minutes! It takes me hours and hours over several months.

alemci Thu 23-Aug-12 18:49:11

can't wait, utter crap and escapism but so watchable

HarrietJonesPrimeMinister Thu 23-Aug-12 20:08:35

Can't just be one they've killed off?

Raahh Thu 23-Aug-12 20:09:35

Hmmm. So far this is looking like Waterloo road meets Tracey Beakergrin

Sparklingbrook Thu 23-Aug-12 20:15:46

I'm not liking it so far.......

meala Thu 23-Aug-12 20:16:58

boohoohooshouldhavewongold Thu 23-Aug-12 20:20:07

Well, I got it wrong with the death toll blush My family girl is getting on my nerves already

Sparklingbrook Thu 23-Aug-12 20:20:32

Um do you not have to apply to the council to get into a school anymore?

MrsJREwing Thu 23-Aug-12 20:21:39

Yes my family and Eastenders around the same time as Martine McC...

Sparklingbrook Thu 23-Aug-12 20:23:40

Daniela Denby-Ashe, we called her 'greasy top knot' in Eastenders. grin

Sparklingbrook Thu 23-Aug-12 20:31:32

Really not liking this. sad

MrsJREwing Thu 23-Aug-12 20:32:15

Did she date Joe, Biancas brother, Davids son?

Sparklingbrook Thu 23-Aug-12 20:35:03

Yes, and Robbie Jackson I think.

Sparklingbrook Thu 23-Aug-12 20:37:51

Who are all these people? I really don't care about any of them. Is the new boy about 35?

HarrietJonesPrimeMinister Thu 23-Aug-12 20:41:02
