Since we have to wait until 2017 for the next season of Doctor Who, BBC 3 is throwing us a bone with their young-adult spin-off The Class.
Coming in October, The Class will be the third Doctor Who spin-off in so many years and is hoping to share in the same level of success garnered by Torchwood and The Sarah Jane Adventures.
Centring around Coal Hill Academy, a place which has been part of Doctor Who universe since it’s first episode in 1963, The Class will follow the lives of sixth formers and teachers at Coal Hill Academy as they try to handle the stresses of their academic and social lives while facing the horror of time travel.
The eight episode series is set to make stars out of it’s cast of stars including Mr Selfridge star Greg Austin and newcomer Vivan Orparah. And it will have some familiar faces such as Nigel Betts who played Mr Armitage in the eighth series of Doctor Who reprise his role and maybe a guest star role from Mr Capaldi himself.
Not much is known about the plot of the show at this moment, but we know that after the Doctor’s frequent visit to the school (now an academy thanks Cameron) the walls of time and space have been stretched very thin around the school meaning monsters from all over the universe will have access to our world….
No official start date right now will most likely be online, an interesting move by the BBC whether it will pay off we will have to wait and see
