BBC Three announced today an 8-episode Doctor Who spinoff, to be called Class. The series will be written by YA author Patrick Ness (The Rest of Us Just Live Here, More Than This, the Chaos Walking series). From the BBC America website:
BBC Three today announces Class – a new 8 x 45 minute Doctor Who spin off from the acclaimed YA author, Patrick Ness. Class is a YA series set in contemporary London. Incredible dangers are breaking through the walls of time and space, and with darkness coming, London is unprotected. With all the action, heart and adrenalin of the best YA fiction (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, The Hunger Games), this is Coal Hill School and Doctor Who like you’ve never seen them before.
Steven Moffat says, “No one has documented the dark and exhilarating world of the teenager like Patrick Ness, and now we’re bringing his brilliant story-telling into Doctor Who. This is growing up in modern Britain – but with monsters!”
Filming will begin in Wales in Spring 2016, and the series will air next year. Read the entire article here.
