Waterloo Road

Series 8 - Episode 13

Review by:
Jane Rackham

If it weren’t for the activities of the thieving, lying and disruptive Barry family, Waterloo Road would be unrecognisable to long-term fans because the rest of the school is being uncharacteristically well behaved.

Encouraged by her mother Carol, Dynasty is having cosmetic surgery to help her land a lucrative pole dancing contract, something Imogen finds especially abhorrent after she’s been told nothing can be done to reduce her burns scarring.

Meanwhile, Carol threatens the oh-so-proper Audrey (who really does deserve some bigger storylines) when she tries to get Dynasty to continue her education, and Barry decides to liberate Lorraine’s shiny, red Ferrari.

About this programme

13/30. Imogen is devastated to discover there is nothing that can be done to reduce her scars - just as Dynasty announces she is going under the knife to have a boob job, all part of her mother Carol's grand plan for her daughter to leave school and become a pole dancer. Michael asks Christine out on a date, Chalky is having trouble understanding foster son Kevin, and Nikki and Scout's fractured relationship gets worse when the latter is accused of stealing Lorraine's expensive sports car - but it seems Barry may know something about that particular incident.
