A while back, BBC announced they were making a new Doctor Who spin-off series. After Torchwood and the Sarah Jane Adventures, we were getting Class, a series written by Patrick Ness (author of The Chaos Walking trilogy, among others) that would revolve around a group of students from Coal Hill School, the school that Clara Oswald taught at. Yesterday, a trailer for the show as released, along with a synopsis, an airdate for the first episode, and a nice surprise at the end!
Coal Hill School has been a feature of Doctor Who since the first episode, but now we get to see the day-to-day adventures of the students coping with intrusions from space and time. Cast: Greg Austin, Fady Elsayed, Sophie Hopkins, Vivian Oparah, Katherine Kelly, Nigel Betts, Pooky Quesnel, Jordan Renzo. Source: IMDB
Class will start airing on 22 October 2016.
