The BBC has announced a new Doctor Who spin-off show geared toward a young adult audience. Titled Class, the show will consist of eight 45-minute episodes, and it is being written by YA author, Patrick Ness ( A Monster Calls, The Knife of Never Letting Go).
Here's the official synopsis:
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 adrenaline 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.
Of the series, and the involvement of Ness, Steven Moffat had this to say:
“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!”This will be the first television series for Ness, as well as his first foray into the world of Doctor Who, and he's seems suitably excited!
"I'm astounded and thrilled to be entering the Doctor Who universe, which is as vast as time and space itself. There's so much room there for all kinds of amazing stories, and to work with Steven Moffat and Brian Minchin to find a place to tell one of my own has been an absolute joy. I can't wait for people to meet the heroes of Class, to meet the all-new villains and aliens, to remember that the horrors of the darkest corners of existence are just about on par with having to pass your A-Levels."The series is expected to begin filming in Wales Spring 2016, and will air in the U.K. and North America some time next fall. We'll keep you updated!
