Doctor Who spin-off Class set to debut 22nd October

The new BBC young adult Doctor Who spin-off series Class will be available on BBC Three from Saturday 22nd October.

Current Doctor Who Peter Capaldi will join the cast of exciting new talent in the opening episode of the series For Tonight We Might Die, followed by the second episode The Coach with the Dragon Tattoo.

The new series is set in Coal Hill Academy, a school which holds some very dark and deadly secrets in its shadows. As the new term starts, students are preparing for their 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.

Charlie (Greg Austin), April (Sophie Hopkins), Ram (Fady Elsayed) and Tanya (Vivian Oparah), assisted by their physics teacher Miss Quill (Katherine Kelly), are charged with a great responsibility by the mysterious alien known as the Doctor (Peter Capaldi) to guard against the creatures of nightmare that want nothing more than to find a way through to Earth and take it for their own.

Commenting on his involvement with the new Doctor Who spin-off series, Peter Capaldi, said: “The Doctor Who family is growing, and it’s fantastic to be able to welcome the young new cast of Class in to the Whoniverse.” Check out the young cast here.

In addition, an exclusive world premiere of the first episode will take place at Rich Mix on Thursday 20 October, the home of Coal Hill Academy, Shoreditch, with doors opening at 6pm.

Tickets are limited and are now available via the BBC Shows and Tours website

Drawn at random, successful applicants will be allowed a maximum of one pair of tickets each.
