'Educating Yorkshire' Review: What Is So Enticing About Seeing Our Schooldays Revisited On The Small Screen?

Nearly three million viewers tuned in for last night's sequel to 'Educating Essex', this time with a burrow into the school system of Yorkshire, namely Thornhill Community Academy near Dewsbury.

Once again, this BAFTA Award-winning series proved that there is something inherently delightful in fixing a camera to the wall of corridors we have all walked, and simply replaying the results, as bemused teachers deal with hormonal, wise-beyond-their-years teenagers, all in evident need of guidance and a pat on the shoulder, whatever they might have us believe.

This series' champion - headteacher Mr Mitchell, a paragon of a man, dealing with everything from strangely-painted eyebrows, to the more serious challenges of potential racial abuse.

These teachers are heroes, with the children pretty endearing as well, to their collective horror, I'm sure.

What makes this series so special? Please share your thoughts below...
