Claire Wilson (Kate Mara – The Martian) is just starting her first term at Westerbrook High, teaching English, and since she doesn't have a pandemic to worry about, she's preoccupied with starting a family with her other half, but as middle age beckons, we see her early on, stealing a lipstick from a shop, which seems quite ridiculous for a teacher to do. But about the main plot, and everyone has a teacher they fancied at school, but you'd never have a chance meeting with them in a diner, which is how Eric (Nick Robinson – Jurassic World) and Claire meet outside of school. In reality, Nick Robinson (not the BBC bod) is 25 and Kate Mara is 37, but since she looks quite young anyway, they both look around the same age, so it doesn't sound anything like the illicit premise it's meant to be. However, after tonight's episodes, you can then watch the entire series on the BBC iPlayer. Nick Robinson plays Eric in A Teacher (Credit: BBC) Who plays Eric in BBC Two drama A Teacher?
