After rewatching all 10 series in lockdown I am very happy with this, although I do question how they are planning to return it to Greater Manchester...

Oh, that's potentially ok. Don't think any reboot will top the series that had Jack Rimmer (I don't know his actual name) and Neil Morrissey in it though, that was the best one.

Before rewatching it, I remembered a few things from the later series (and some of what I rememebered was very random) but it was nice to see the entire 10 series together.

It's a shame that Holby City was scrapped for this, but between Holby City and Waterloo Road, I'd much prefer Waterloo Road to be back, especially when Casualty still exists as their medical drama.

The way they have described it here - https://www.bbc.co.uk/mediacentre/20...rns-to-the-bbc - does make it seems like they are very much focusing on the modern issues in schools and with teenagers again and hopefully with the 6 year break, there is more than enough potential material to make it feel fresh.

I do wonder how the writers will explain the school moving from Rochdale, to Greenock, and then back to Greater Manchester again. I'm sure their explanation will be just as realistic as the reason for moving to Scotland was (although I don't actually care if these sorts of storylines are realistic or not).

I'm loving Holby City right now but I understand that it is extremely unrealistic and for the past few episodes, have left the "medical" part of medical drama behind but that was understandable considering there was a bomb...

I haven't seen Tuesday's episode yet but I really hope Jeni is actually going to get caught out. Very uncomfortable storyline but an important one imo

I loved waterloo road. The storylines got weirder as time went on but the first 5 seasons were good. Even though Ackley Bridge was on while I was at secondary I always found WR more relatable for me

Ackley Bridge did feel a bit less down-to-earth than WR but still entertaining. The 4th series of Ackley Bridge was a bit less gripping due to its earlier timeslot, but some of the storylines were really good.

It's definitely returning! I remember growing up with the later series as well (I think Series 6 onwards) and I am so happy it is back!
