With all the action, heart and adrenalin of the best YA fiction (Buffy, Hunger Games), this is Coal Hill School and Doctor Who like you’ve never seen it before.
Coal Hill School, which has long been a fixture in the world of Doctor Who, made its first appearance in the very first episode of the Doctor Who.

Her maths teacher boyfriend Danny Pink, also worked there. The school is also featured in several episodes with Peter Capaldi, the Twelfth Doctor including Series 9 season opener, The Magician’s Apprentice.
