Class Set To Premiere In October

The BBC confirmed today that its Doctor Who spin-off Class will debut on its BBC Three channel on October 22nd.

In addition to announcing the show’s debut date, the network also revealed that Peter Capaldi will reprise his role as the Doctor on the program’s first episode. Capaldi’s presence will help tie the series to the network’s flagship property further, with the actor applauding the addition of the cast of Class to the “Whoniverse”:

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 (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.

Patrick Ness has aimed to create intriguing and complex characters that have to navigate their way through more than just teenage hormones, exams and detention. Joining them as series regulars are Jordan Renzo (ChosenTroubled), Pooky Quesnel (The A WordAccused), Nigel Betts (Boy Meets GirlDoctor Who). The first two episodes of the Doctor Who spinoff also feature Ben Peel (The FallVampire Academy), Anna Shaffer (Harry Potter, Hollyoaks), Paul Marc Davies (Doctor WhoTorchwood), and Shannon Murray (The Totally Senseless Gameshow).

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I've made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
