This morning, Blogtor Who seemingly leaked some information a little too early about the new Doctor Who spinoff, Class; I decided to wait until it’s been officially announced, so now, here’s the information we have. We learn about the characters a little bit more, we get an air date and the name of the first two episodes. Want to know more? Then read on my Classmates.
Okay, so here’s what we know; all the important stuff is going to be in bold, so if you just want to skim to the important stuff, you can.
Class will air on BBC There on Saturday 22nd October, showing the first two episodes; ‘For Tonight We Might Die’ and ‘The Coach With The Dragon Tattoo’ how cool do they sound?
Peter Capaldi will appear in the first episode as the Twelfth Doctor. Speaking about the inclusion in Class, he said “The Doctor Who family is growing, and it’s fantastic to be able to welcome the young new cast of Class into the Whoniverse.”
We also have a bit more of a synopsis for the show:
It’s a new term at Coal Hill Academy, and students are preparing for the Autumn Prom. But when the school comes under attack, four alienated students must form an unlikely alliance to defeat them. And this incursion is only the beginning.
We also get to know the main characters names (finally) and they are as follows
Greg Austin is playing Charlie
Sophie Hopkins is playing April
Fady Elsayed is playing Ram
Vivian Oparah is playing Tanya
Katherine Kelly is playing Miss Quill.
