Class Begins in October

Doctor Who’s new spin-off Class is set to air this October on BBC Three and BBC One, according to Empire Magazine.

While the BBC are still to officially confirm at the time of writing, the show was always stated for this Autumn.

Lead writer Patrick Ness is also interviewed in the magazine and talks about the genesis of the idea for the show: “Coal Hill has existed in Doctor Who since literally episode one.The Doctor’s granddaughter went there. So we thought, ‘All that time activity at the school, has that caused any problems?’ Well, what do you know, it has!”

Ness goes on to compare to the show to Buffy the Vampire Slayer: “Adults watch that, because it’s a great show, but the POV and the agency are all teenage, and that’s what we want to do with Class. It needs to be from the point of view of the sixth-formers – but that doesn’t mean that it’s necessarily a ‘young show’.”

“We’re not telling stories of the ‘chosen ones’,” Ness adds. “It’s happenstance that puts these people [at the centre of things]. What if your timing is just weird and things happen to you? How do you deal with it? I’m interested in real consequences. The Doctor is always exciting, but he never stays. He goes off on the next adventure. What happens to real people?”
