This Doctor Who spin-off is set in Coal Hill Academy – the school that has been a part of Who history since 1963.
Peter Capaldi’s Doctor pops in for a cameo in the opening episode, but the series is primarily concerned with a group of students and faculty members – some of whom are human and some not. And when a hostile alien race called the Shadowkin threatens Earth, the Coal Hill gang have more than an algebra pop quiz to worry about. Combining sci-fi with adolescent issues and Buffy the Vampire Slayer heroics, Class is aimed at young adult viewers rather than kids who cower behind the sofa at the first sight of the Daleks. It also features killer flowers, a coach with a dragon tattoo, and a lot of heart(s). Look out, too, for a subplot involving a familiar Doctor Who monster that leaves the door open for a second season.
