New Doctor Who BBC Three Spin-Off Series - Class

BBC Three today announces Class - a new 8 x 45 minute Doctor Who Spin off from the acclaimed Young Adult author Patrick Ness (Chaos Walking trilogy and A Monster Calls). 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, this is Coal Hill School and Doctor Who like you've never seen it before.

Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat, who will be an executive producer on the programme, said:
"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!"
Ness said:
"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 [producer] 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."
Class is executive produced by Steven Moffat, Patrick Ness and Brian Minchin. An 8 x 45 minute series produced by BBC Cymru Wales in association with BBC Worldwide for BBC Three. It will film in and around Wales from next spring before being shown on BBC Three later in 2016.
