New photos from the filming of BBC Three’s Class reveal a lovely tribute to one of the original companions in Doctor Who.
Created by YA author Patrick Ness, the latest Doctor Who spin-off began filming in Cardiff earlier this month.
Photos posted on Twitter feature a sign for ‘The Barbara Wright Building’, a reference to the First Doctor’s companion. A teacher at Coal Hill School, where Class is set, Barbara was played by Jacqueline Hill from 1963 to 1965.

Other photos also reveal that Coal Hill School has apparently become an academy!

The show’s cast includes Greg Austin, Fady Elsayed, Sophie Hopkins and Vivian Oparah as four Sixth Formers, with Katherine Kelly (Coronation Street) playing a “powerful” teacher at Coal Hill School and Doctor Who actor Nigel Betts reprising the role of Mr Armitage.
Season 10 is expected to begin filming next month and will air on BBC One in spring 2017.
