‘Doctor Who’ Spinoff ‘Class’ to Air in 2016 on BBC America


The “Doctor Who” spinoff “Class” will begin airing in the United States on BBC America in 2016, Variety reports.

In October, BBC announced “Class,” a spinoff series from YA author Patrick Ness which will take place in contemporary London as dangers start breaking through the walls of time and space. Described as “Coal Hill School and ‘Doctor Who’ like you’ve never seen them before,” the new series will run for eight 45-minute episodes.

Ness, Moffatt and Brian Minchin will executive produce the project, which was commissioned by Damian Kavanagh, Controller BBC Three and Polly Hill, Controller BBC Drama Commissioning. No further details are known at this time.

“Class” will film in and around Wales in Spring 2016 and air next year. Starring Peter Capaldi as the Twelfth Doctor, “Doctor Who” airs on BBC.

    How confusing is this announcement?

    From what it says, there will be a Doctor Who spinoff called “class” in which the Doctor will be featured in it….how is that a “spinoff”?

  • Chuck Allen

    Actually it says “Starring Peter Capaldi as the Twelfth Doctor, “Doctor Who” airs on BBC.” which is a VERY confusing way of saying “Peter Capaldi is starring in Doctor Who which airs on BBC”

    I’m sure it was done on purpose in order to confuse people, as I had to read it a couple times to see what was actually being said.

    It doesn’t sound like The Doctor is in this one, so it is a pass for me.
