DW & TW Connections:
By DJ Forrest
The interest for life in school programmes stems from Grange Hill, and for the most part, Waterloo Road is Grange Hill but with a more balanced view, not just about the pupils, but about the teachers and new families coming into the series.
Whereas Grange Hill was for children,
Road entertains the whole family, with topics
ranging from LGBT issues to sociopaths, to pregnancy and more.
Waterloo Road and a
trip down the Whoniverse Corridors.
We’ve done the research so you don’t have to!
