‘Doctor Who’ spin-off ‘Class’ to reportedly air in October

Class -

For those who are very curious to pay a visit to the much-anticipated “Doctor Who” spin-off “Class,” rest assured that it could be coming your way at some point in the near future!

According to a report from Empire Magazine, the spin-off series is going to start airing at some point in October. While there is no precise premiere date just yet, writer / executive producer Patrick Ness also talked to the publication about why setting a story at the Coal Hill School was a smart idea:

“Coal Hill has existed in Doctor Who since literally episode one. The Doctor’s granddaughter went there. So we thought, ‘All that time activity at the school, has that caused any problems?’ Well, what do you know, it has!”

The idea for this show seems to be introducing a variety of interesting characters who bring something unique to the story and the overall universe. There will be several elements that are familiar to longtime fans of the show, but at the same time, this is meant to be its own creation for BBC Three. We hope that it is fun and appeals to a younger audience. Who knows? Maybe for some out there, this could be a great introduction to classic “Doctor Who” and some of the characters who are present there.

The timing for this series certainly is perfect, given that there will not be any episodes of the flagship show until Christmas Day. Following that, you’re probably going to have to wait until 2017 to see the further adventures of The Doctor and his new companion Bill (Pearl Mackie).
