Teachers

"superbly crafted, intelligent comedy drama"

"reminds us adults how irresponsible we still want to be"

Teachers - Series 1 - starring Andrew Lincoln and Nina Sosanya

The trials and tribulations of a group of teachers who work at the Summerdown Comprehensive School. Depending on where you get your recommendations, you'll see Teachers described as a comedy, a drama, an irresponsible depiction of the teaching profession and a (fairly) sympathetic reminder of how teachers are expected to be morally unimpeachable despite being ordinary human beings like the rest of us. In fact, it's all of the above, which perhaps does more for the show's realism than all its supposedly controversial elements put together.
The series stars Andrew Lincoln as the feckless Simon, who, like several of his colleagues, is no more mature or advanced in terms of his ability to manage his own life than his pupils. The staff at the fictitious Bristol school are given to in-fighting, petty factionalism, bad behaviour, inappropriate nookie and dishonesty, both on and off-duty.
