Class is a British science fiction series that premiered on BBC Three in October of 2016. The show is a spin-off of the long-running and much-beloved series Doctor Who, which has been a mainstay of British television since the 1960s. Class was created by author Patrick Ness, who has written several popular young adult novels, including the acclaimed Chaos Walking trilogy.

The show is set in Coal Hill School, a fictional school in London that has been a recurring location in Doctor Who since the very first episode of the show in 1963. The school is now under the control of new headmistress Miss Quill, played by Katherine Kelly, who is a tough and uncompromising figure with a mysterious past. Alongside Miss Quill are four students: Ram, April, Tanya, and Charlie.

Ram, played by Greg Austin, is a popular student and star athlete who is trying to balance his studies with his social life. His life is turned upside down when his girlfriend is killed in a bizarre and inexplicable incident. April, played by Sophie Hopkins, is a brilliant student who has always been something of an outsider. After her father's death, she turns to Ram for support and becomes embroiled in his world of danger and adventure.

Tanya, played by Vivian Oparah, is a 14-year-old prodigy who is struggling to balance her academic pursuits with her desire to have a social life. She is constantly searching for something to challenge her intellectually, and finds it in the strange and dangerous events that begin to occur at the school. Charlie, played by Fady Elsayed, is a mysterious student who is hiding a dark secret. He is not what he seems, and his true identity is slowly revealed over the course of the series.

As the show progresses, the students of Coal Hill School find themselves drawn into a dangerous world of aliens, monsters, and time-traveling villains. They are aided in their efforts by the enigmatic and charismatic character of the Doctor, who appears in several episodes of the show.

Class is a dark and compelling series that deals with some weighty themes, such as loss, grief, and the search for identity. The show manages to balance its science fiction elements with strong character development and emotional storytelling. It is a worthy addition to the Doctor Who universe and should be enjoyed by fans of the long-running series as well as newcomers to the world of science fiction.

One of the standout performances in the show comes from Katherine Kelly, who is a force of nature as the tough and uncompromising Miss Quill. She brings a sense of gravitas and complexity to the character, who is far from being a one-note villain. Kelly is joined by a talented cast of young actors who are all excellent in their roles.

The show also features some impressive special effects and impressive set-pieces. There are some genuinely chilling moments throughout the series that will keep you on the edge of your seat. The show is also notable for its diverse cast, which is refreshing to see in a genre that has often been accused of being dominated by white male protagonists.

In conclusion, Class is a must-watch for fans of Doctor Who and science fiction in general. It is a well-crafted series that manages to balance its genre elements with strong character development and emotional storytelling. The show boasts a strong cast, impressive special effects, and some genuinely impressive set-pieces. It is a worthy addition to the Doctor Who universe and a testament to the enduring appeal of this iconic British science fiction franchise.

Class is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (9 episodes). The series first aired on April 15, 2017.
