Class is a new Doctor Who spinoff set in Coal Hill School, a location prominently featured in Doctor Who's history. Not much has been revealed about the series, but I am quietly optimistic about the show. It's only 8 episodes long and showrunner Patrick Ness has teased many secrets about the series and let slip that The Doctor will appear in episode 1 so I will at least give it a chance. I was pleased to hear that the series has taken a darker route and targeted to a young adult audience, as it will give us at look at Coal Hill in a whole new light compared to the last few appearances we have seen it in and the darker tone is much needed in the Whoniverse with the absence of Torchwood. (Please bring back Torchwood, the fans love it!!)
The first 2 episodes 'For Tonight We Must Die' and 'The Coach With The Dragon Tattoo' drop on BBC Three on the 22nd October. As a Whovian I will be certainly be watching, I hope you give the show a chance too, or at least it will be something to tie us over until the next Doctor Who episode at Christmas.
