Waterloo Road – now into its sixth series – is kept fresh by periodic decapitation. One head goes and another arrives, to be stitched into place on the bleeding stump. The operation doesn't always take, though it's probably too early to say whether Amanda Burton, the latest replacement, will ultimately be rejected by the host body. She's certainly a matching donor in terms of her character, this particular headship calling for a melodramatic back-story (one recent headmistress had spent time working as a prostitute) and a positively magnetic ability to attract trouble. Mrs Fisher meets the first requirement since she's just taken a year and a half off to cope with the psychological trauma of having her oldest daughter go missing and things look very promising on the second count too. As one of her staff members put it – a little way into the chain of catastrophes that fills the timetable at Waterloo Road – "Parental punch-up, mass evacuation, asthmatic pupil... talk about a baptism of fire."

Rifles cracked, artillery thundered and the cavalry charged. Having sent in the Imperial Guard, Napoleon Bonaparte beats a hasty retreat under an onslaught of enemy forces.

Around 3,000 historical military enthusiasts from across Europe, armed with heavy guns and supported by 150 cavalry, were willing participants in the reconstruction of five scenes from the battle, which took place 195 years earlier on 18 June 1815.
