    New plot summaries for Class reveal what the Doctor Who spin-off has in store
    Doctors, shadows and skin-peeling dragons, basically

    http://www.radiotimes.com/news/2016-...medium=twitter

    After months of uncertainty, BBC3’s Class has begun dropping all sorts of information about what we can expect from the Doctor Who spin-off, ranging from the presence of Peter Capaldi’s Doctor to the threats our heroes will face – and now the biggest pile of information yet has appeared in the form of episode summaries for the first two instalments of the series.

    Appearing in online programme information ahead of the two episodes’ release on BBC3 on Saturday 22nd October, the summaries include details of the alien menaces looming over Coal Hill School, how the Doctor fits in and the fallout of whatever horrors are inflicted on the students (played by Greg Austin, Vivian Oparah, Fady Elsayed and Sophie Hopkins).

    First off, here’s the summary for series premiere For Tonight We Might Die, which sees the students at a deadly school prom:


    It's a new term at Coal Hill Academy, and students are preparing for their Autumn Prom. But when the school comes under attack from the monstrous Shadow Kin, four alienated students must form an unlikely alliance to defeat them.

    Charlie, April, Ram and Tanya, assisted by their physics teacher Miss Quill, are now charged with a great responsibility by the mysterious alien known as 'The Doctor': to guard against the creatures of nightmare, who want nothing more than to find a way through to Earth and take it for their own.
    And this incursion is only the beginning…


    So a few new details here beyond the premise-setting stuff that we already knew – the mysterious monsters previously referred to as “Shadow” and seen in a short trailer are apparently called the Shadow Kin, and as expected they attack the school in the first episode. Oh, and Katherine Kelly’s Miss Quill is a physics teacher, which we probably should have expected based on her blackboard (below).


    But it’s the summary for episode two's The Coach with the Dragon Tattoo that has really intrigued us...


    Following the tragic events at the Prom, a devastated Ram isolates himself from the other three as he struggles with his new reality. Desperate to hold himself together on the football pitch, when he thinks he witnesses someone getting skinned alive he's convinced he's cracking up.

    But when Tanya, Charlie and April are all confronted with the same thing: a horrific, monstrous, skin-peeling dragon, they know that they're under attack. The gang must pull together to fight against the monster, and try to keep Coal Hill safe.

    So first off this description shows that Class will have a similarly episodic structure to Doctor Who, with the ScWhoby gang taking on a new creature or alien every week as opposed to having a fully serialised story. So after saving the world from the Shadow Kin in episode one, they’ll now stop this new monster. Easy.

    But the summary also teases that we can expect some pretty dark stuff in the previous episode, hinting at “tragic events” still haunting Ram (Fady Elsayed) that are presumably tied in with Shadow Kin attack on the prom. Could Class have already killed off a character in its premiere? Or does something somehow even worse happen to Ram?

    Oh, and there’s a SKIN-PEELING DRAGON in it. Clearly, this is not yer da’s Doctor Who spin-off, closer to the darkness of Torchwood than the kid-friendly whimsy of The Sarah Jane Adventures.

    So overall, it’s sounding like Class will be the grown-up, Doctor Who-themed sci-fi that the fans are hoping for. Only a couple of weeks now until we find out for sure…

    Class episode 1 and 2 will be available on BBC3 online from Saturday 22nd October

    Exclusive: Class star Greg Austin says Peter Capaldi is a "genius madman" - and reveals his hopes for a series 2

    "Parental advisory is required" for BBC Three's new Doctor Who spin-off.


    By
    Morgan Jeffery
    21 October 2016


    http://www.digitalspy.com/tv/class/n...-a-series-two/



    A little over a year since it was first announced, Doctor Who's new spin-off series Class will land on BBC Three tomorrow morning (October 22).

    Written by YA author Patrick Ness, the eight-parter is aimed squarely at teenagers (and older viewers) - with star Greg Austin telling Digital Spy that Class gets "quite dark".

    "There's quite a bit of blood, a bit of gore, there's some sex, but none of it's gratuitous," Austin said. "You've got to earn that, otherwise it just doesn't read as being truthful. But yeah - parental advisory is required, I think!



    "A lot of people like to put it on a scale alongside the other spin-offs, but I like to think of it as not in between Torchwood and The Sarah Jane Adventures, but off to the side somewhere.

    "It's its own thing and as such it needs to stand on its own two feet - it's not leaning too heavily on any of the past iterations of Doctor Who."

    © BBC/Simon Ridgeway

    Peter Capaldi does appear though in the first episode - just to set the good ship Class off on its maiden voyage.

    "He's some sort of genius madman," Austin enthused. "He takes Patrick's brilliant writing and twists it a little bit, and does his own thing with it. Each take was different from the last, but the continuity was still there - it's quite hard to pinpoint how he does it, but it's beautiful to watch him work."

    © BBC/Simon Ridgeway


    Now, though, Class will be looking to stand on its own, with Austin insisting that there are no plans for its cast to return the favour and appear on Doctor Who. ("Though that would be awesome!" he adds.)

    The series is set at Coal Hill Academy - a school that's featured on Doctor Who from the very first episode back in 1963 - and follows four teens and their mysterious teacher Miss Quill (Katherine Kelly) as they battle threats from across time and space.

    Austin's character Charlie has a secret, though - as the latest trailer confirms, he's "from another planet".



    "When I first got the script for my first audition, I didn't know he was an alien - it didn't specifically say that he was," the actor revealed. "So I saw him as just being a bit socially inept, maybe he had mild Asperger's syndrome, that's what read to me.

    "So I looked into that side of things - and that really helped me with the alien perspective - having a new perspective on things, not necessarily worse but a different way of looking at things."

    © BBC/Simon Ridgeway


    And the 24-year-old says there are many more stories to tell with Charlie, Miss Quill, Ram (Fady Elsayed), Tanya (Vivian Oparah) and April (Sophie Hopkins) beyond just these eight.

    "There's a long way for these characters to go," he said. "By the end of the series, there's some big choices that have to be made... that leave a lot of room for a lot of big consequences. That's all I'm going to say!"

    Class launches with a double-bill tomorrow at 10am on BBC Three.
