Class


Class Information

Class is an upcoming British science fiction drama series, and a spin-off of Doctor Who. It is created and written by Patrick Ness, who also produces alongside Doctor Who showrunner lead writer Steven Moffat, and Brian Minchin, who acted as producer on Doctor Who and two of its previous spin-offs, Torchwood and The Sarah Jane Adventures. The first series will consist of eight episodes, set to premiere on BBC Three on 22 October 2016.

Premise

The series will be set in Coal Hill Academy, a fictional school that has been regularly featured in Doctor Who since its original 1963 serial, and will focus on six of its students and staff members, including Mr. Armitage (Nigel Betts), a minor recurring character from the eighth series of Doctor Who.

The sixth formers of Coal Hill Academy all have their own secrets and desires. They have to deal with the stresses of everyday life, including friends, parents, school work, sex, and sorrow, but also the horrors that come from time travel. The Doctor and his time-travelling have made the walls of space and time stretch thin, and monsters beyond imagination are planning to break through and wreak havoc upon the Earth.
