Straw poll

Am I the only one watching Waterloo Road?

If you're unaware of it, it's Grange Hill for grown-ups (kinda). If I was about 12 I think I'd think it was the best thing ever.

Well I'm 45 and I still think it's pretty good. LIke Casualty or Holby City, it's one of those shows that because it's on all the time people think it's automatically rubbish. Not true. Some good actors, some not so good, some fanciful storylines, some firmly rooted in reality. I'm a fan, though I do miss Denise Welch. She was marvellous as rubbish French teacher Steph.

Did you know Amanda Burton was in it?

Anyone else following the show?

I should be watching it, as I understand Eva Pope is/was in it and in most circumstances I'd watch her knitting on a park bench for six hours solid, never mind pouting in a classroom. But I'm not.

I caught a scene with Martin Kemp monstering a lad playing his son the other week and it looked promising. But I then went for a swim.

Never seen it, for the simple reason that Wednesdays are when MrsB goes out so I catch up on stuff she doesn't want to watch, podcasts etc. And we have enough series that we follow already so made a choice not to add this one.

Well it's true, you can't watch everything Simon.

Fair enough, Matt. She's not in it anymore but I know what you mean.
