Giving new meaning to the term: sixth-form drama
Routinely represented in some quarters as a kind of rallying cry to teenage mayhem, Skins is actually more of an A-level This Life. Based around a group of friends living with their parents (these, like, Bill Bailey, Peter Capaldi, and Josie Lawrence are uniformly well-cast and played), this season sees things get perceptibly darker in the wake of Tony’s accident, but still not without its utterly exuberant moments. Indie rock, incidentally, is crammed in all over.
