Waterloo Road is a BBC television drama series set in Rochdale, Greater Manchester, England,[1] and is about a troubled comprehensive school. The programme focuses on its teachers and students, and confronts social issues, including affairs, abortion, divorce and suicide.

Waterloo Road is produced by Shed Productions, the production company responsible for Bad Girls and Footballers' Wives.[2]



An eight part series was made in 2005 and aired in 2006. It was then re-commissioned for a second series,[3] where the first seven episodes were airing on Sunday nights at 8pm in Scotland and Thursday nights at 8pm in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.[4]

Series 2 finished airing 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 and 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 in most of the UK apart from Scotland, who were left to wait until Monday 17 March 2008. Due to the success of Series 3, a fourth series of 20 episodes was commissioned.

Series 4 began on BBC One on Wednesday 7 January 2009 at 8:00pm (7:30pm on BBC One Scotland) and a fifth series began airing from 28 October 2009 on BBC One, although is currently on indefinite hiatus.[5] A sixth series has also been commissioned and filming began on 9 November 2009, one week after filming finished on Series 5.[6]


Much of the series takes place at Waterloo Road Comprehensive, a fictional co-educational, community school which takes in students aged 11 to 18. At the opening of the series the school was notorious for being a "on the scrapheap" with poorly-behaved students and poor quality teachers, although it later passed its inspection to remain open. In series 3 it suffered a major fire and in series 4 it was demolished by a digger driven by the intoxicated Ralph Mellor. Afterwards the school merged with the local private school, John Fosters.

The real life location for Waterloo Road Comprehensive is the former Hill Top Primary School in Kirkholt, Rochdale, England. As well as external shots, the internal views of the school used in the series have also been filmed inside Hill Top. Other locations used include areas in and around Rochdale and nearby Manchester.[citation needed]




Series 1 (2006)

The first episode of Waterloo Road was broadcast on 9 March 2006, having being 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).

Through the 8-part run of series 1, the school faced closure from the governors due to the lack of pupils and bad publicity it had been receiving prior to Jack's appointment as the new headteacher. Jack Rimmer, formerly deputy head, became headmaster when the previous head Brian Vasey had a nervous breakdown after 30 years of teaching at the school. Other notable storylines included the death of pupil Adam Deardon in a car crash, the prosecution against Donte Charles in connection with Adam's death, pupil Lewis Seddon's inappropriate sexual behaviour towards teacher Kim Campbell, 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)

The 12-part second series aired on 18 January 2007 and 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).

On 4 January 2007, BBC One began advertising the second series as coming soon. It began airing on BBC One Scotland on 14 January 2007 and in the rest of the UK on 18 January 2007.[7]

The series featured the return of Lorna, following her attempted suicide at the end of series 1 (she was not seen jumping into the water until the beginning of series 2). This came as a shock to Tom and Izzie, who were expecting their first child together, until Izzie lost the baby after falling over during an argument with Lorna. Lorna realises Tom isn't the one for her, and that her MS and her career are making her life too stressful. She walks out of the school partway through a lesson. She re-unites Izzie and Tom, before committing suicide rather than living on 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 of the show include the arrival and departure of prospective sponsor governors Jerry Preston and Roger Aspinall, the 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.

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 (played by Jason Merrells) recording a Radio documentary featuring the death of his colleague Izzie Redpath (played by Jill Halfpenny). Jack had witnessed Izzy's stabbing at the very end of the last 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 uses of the school budget. He was succeeded by Rachel Mason (played by Eva Pope).

The second half of the third series began on 10 January. 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. On the week beginning 10 March 2 episodes aired. The Second Half of series 3 sees Davina Shackleton accused of having a sexual relationship with a pupil then being forced to date the pupils 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 rachels new building, whose careless disposal of a cigarette had started the blaze) were trapped under falling rubble inside the school.

It is currently airing in New Zealand on TV ONE.

Series 4 (2009)

The 20-part fourth series was commissioned in December 2007. The series began on BBC One on Wednesday 7 January 2009 at 8pm (7:30pm on BBC One Scotland) with the shows first 90-minute opening episode.

Rachel Mason (played by Eva Pope) and Davina Shackleton (played by Christine Tremarco) both return following the fire that left nearly destroyed the school. Characters from the previous series to have departed are revealed to be Mika Grainger, Brett Aspinall (both of whom left for University having graduated from Waterloo Road) and Celine Dixon. The fate of Stuart Hordley is left unanswered.

The series introduces a number of various new characters including The Kelly ‘Family from Hell’, consisting of 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 Phillip 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, it later transpires that Kim has in fact smuggled Grace back into the country illegally after Immigration offers investigate her. Former Deputy Head teacher Andrew Treneman (played by Jamie Glover) makes a brief return in episode 19 (through 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.[5] Filming began on 11 May 2009 and the series began airing on Wednesday 28th October (Sunday 25th 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 Foster's 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, Phillip Ryan, against a filing cabinet (in episode 9), resulting in an extemely large and painful-looking bruise on his back, Phillip struggles to keep quiet. Shocked by Phillip's bruise, Ruby Fry mentions it to Kim Campbell (who incidentally is having an affair with Max). Eventually, Phillip 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, marking the start of a new romantic relationship.

Waterloo Road will break until Spring 2010, resuming at Episode 11 until Episode 20.

Denise Welch (Steph Haydock) will depart during Series 5 after deciding to concentrate on her panellist role on Loose Women and spend more time with her family, however hasn't ruled out a return in a later series.[15] Meanwhile Eva Pope (Rachel Mason), Angela Griffin (Kim Campbell) and Dean Smith (Phillip Ryan) have also announced that they will also be departing during Series 5. [16]

Series 6 (2010)

Production and filming for the 20-part sixth series started on 9 November 2009, for broadcast in 2010. Former Silent Witness actress Amanda Burton will join the cast as new Head Teacher, Karen Fisher, [17] whilst Linzey Cocker will play alongside Burton as on-screen daughter, Jess Fisher. [18] Coronation Street actor Lucien Laviscount has also been cast as Jonathon Kirby [19] Chelsee Healey (Janeece Bryant) has also confirmed on her Twitter page that she will be returning,[20] later confirmed by her agent. [21]

On 21 December 2009, it was announced that former Coronation Street actress Tina O'Brien, aka (Sarah-Louise Platt), has been cast as in an as yet to be confirmed role. It was later announced on 18 February 2010 that Britains Got Talent winner George Sampson shall be joining the cast as new sixth form student, Kyle Stack. His scenes are expected to air in the second half of the series. [22]

Spandau Ballet member and former EastEnders actor Martin Kemp will guest star as a character named Mr. Burley [23] and Karen David will portray new regular Spanish Teacher, Francesca Montoya. [24]

The series will also be filmed in HD. The commission will bring the total number of episodes to 100.
