I liked the last episode, but am sad that Chalky and Scout are going, and I hope Grantly doesn't leave he's my favourite
The show would have to get quite a bit worse for me to stop watching, I still think it's mostly good, and I'm a dedicated fan since the start!

Thought it was funny when Chalky was offered the job and the app guy was like 'oh it's in London, that won't be a problem will it' in a confused sort of way lol. Erm, I dunno, he's living at the other end of the country and is in a teaching post and has just adopted a son...nope, no problem at all, why would you think that?!

do we know this? do you have a link? maybe she becomes joint deputy head with Tom now Sian has gone?


Edit: seen the article now, seems strange but i have a feeling there is more to the decision than meets the eye.
What I find interesting too is the fact it seems to be going back to the council authority rather than being privately owned. Wonder what this might mean for Lorraine Donnegan?

Overall I'm enjoying series 8 ( maybe because I was an extra, I dunno )

Thats good if its not going to be privately owned I always found that a bit strange and it will be good if its more like a Scottish school

Absolutely! Maybe this will bring it fully in line with the Scottish education system too ; standard grades, int1/2, highers and so on.... will make way more sense!

Contrary to a lot of opinions, I've quite enjoyed Series 8B and felt it was a massive improvement over the first ten episodes set in Scotland.

The last episode was a bit crammed with content, but it's always better this way, rather than when it is focusing on just two characters. The Connor and Imogen storyline has grown quite dull if I'm honest... I enjoyed it up until they were back together again, but then it just focused on them too much when other characters could have used the screen time. I feel their conflicts with Christine are becoming a bit repetitive, though I hope that Michael and Christine work out - they were a good match earlier on in the run.
For me, though, it is Scout's story that has stood out in this series, and she stole the show in this final episode, as did Lisa Riley as her mum. Like Tariq, she was a character I disliked upon their arrival, only for it to all turn around as time went by. She became one of my favourite characters and her storyline was wrapped up nicely, even if it was bittersweet.
In terms of loose endings, I hope we get to see more of Kacey's gender identity storyline, and the Nikki/Lorraine thing threw me completely by surprise, but it would give both characters a bit more...character, if I'm honest. I do miss the more brutal Nikki we saw, and Lorraine is too often just a plot device for cash.

So, whilst many complain about it, I am actually quite enjoying the show, and think it's picked up again ever since the awkward gang war plots in Rochdale/the move to Scotland (not to mention getting rid of Phoenix...the most annoying character ever in my opinion). Series 8C has some interesting elements from the looks of things...

I hope Audrey gets explored more in depth next series, Georgie Glen has been pretty underused. I'd also like to see maybe a familiar face returning, perhaps Jasmine Koreshi could return when Tom recommends her as a temporary replacement for Grantly whilst he's ill especially as the actress is based in Scotland
