Story hints revealed for BBC Three’s ‘Doctor Who’ spin-off ‘Class’

Posted Filed under

The first official storyline teasers for BBC Three’s Class have been released.

The new eight-part Doctor Who spin-off, created by YA author Patrick Ness, began filming in Cardiff last month.

Set in contemporary London, Class will premiere later this year on BBC Three in the UK and on BBC America in the US.

The BBC’s synopsis for Class reads: “Like all sixth formers, these four Coal Hill School students have hidden secrets and desires. They are facing their own worst fears, navigating a life of friends, parents, school work, sex, sorrow – and possibly the end of existence.

“Coal Hill School has been a part of the Doctor Who Universe since the very beginning, but that has come at a price. All the time travelling over the years has caused the very walls of space and time to become thin. There’s something pressing in on the other side, something waiting for its chance to kill everyone and everything, to bring us all into Shadow.

“Fear is coming, tragedy is coming, war is coming. Prepare yourselves, Class is coming.”

Class cast

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.
