‘Doctor Who’ spin-off ‘Class’ set to start in October

BBC Three’s new Doctor Who spin-off will apparently begin in October.

Set in contemporary London at Coal Hill Academy, Class began filming in Cardiff in April and “will shine a light on a whole new corner of the Whoniverse.”

The cast of the eight-part YA series is led Greg Austin, Fady Elsayed, Sophie Hopkins and Vivian Oparah as four Sixth Formers, with Katherine Kelly (Coronation Street) playing the role of a teacher and “powerful new presence” the school.

A preview in the new issue of Empire reveals that Class is set to debut on BBC Three in October, although the exact date is TBC.

The magazine describes the show as “a sort of time travelled-tinged Buffy the Vampire Slayer with more aliens and fewer hellbeasts.”
