The online-only Doctor Who spinoff series “Class” is moving closer to reality with the announcement of its principle cast! They’ve cast relative unknowns, Greg Austin, Fady Elsayed, Sophie Hopkins and Vivian Oparah, as the sixth form students who will comprise the main cast, along with actress Katherine Kelly as a schoolteacher at Coal Hill School. The premise, other than “something to do with Doctor Who, set at a school”, is still largely mysterious, but it sounds as if at least one of the students may be something other than what they appear:
Time has looked at your faces now. And time never forgets…
What if your planet was massacred and you were the sole survivor?
What if a legendary figure out of space and time found you a place to hide?
But what if the things that want to kill you have tracked you down?
And worst of all, what if you haven’t studied for your A-Levels…?
Ooooh, it sounds lovely! I cannot wait! I just hope they manage to make it reasonably accessible to folks not in the UK.
