We may be living in lockdown but it’s back to school for some. Two thrilling new volumes of Class: The Audio Adventures are out now!
Although the 2016 TV series, originally created by Patrick Ness for BBC Three, ran for just eight episodes, Big Finish’s fantastic audio spin-off is keeping the staff and classmates of Coal Hill Academy busy with another six adventures, released today.
Class: The Audio Adventures Volumes three and four are available to own now at £19.99 each as a limited edition CD box set (only 1,000 will be pressed of each volume) or £16.99 each on download from the Big Finish website. Both volumes will remain at this price until general release when they will be available for £24.99 on CD or £19.99 on download.
The two volumes contain three new stories each as follows:
Class: The Audio Adventures – Volume Three
- The Soers’ Ditch by Carl Rowens
- Catfish by Kate Thorman
- Sweet Nothings by Michael Dennis
Class: The Audio Adventures – Volume Four
- Mock by Alfie Shaw
- The Creeper by Lizzie Hopley
- Queen of Rhodia by Blair Mowat
Class stars Greg Austin (playing Charlie Smith), Sophie Hopkins (April MacLean), Fady Elsayed (Ram Singh) and Joanna McGibbon (Tanya Adeola).
Dervla Kirwan joins the cast as Miss Quill, a part previously portrayed by Katherine Kelly and actor already familiar to Doctor Who fans, as she appeared in the 2008 Christmas special, The Next Doctor, playing the ruthless Miss Hartigan.
Actor Dervla Kirwan said: “I’m a bit of a sci-fi geek. I just love doing jobs like this because it’s the imagination of the writing that really excites me. So to get to play this incredible, uncompromising super-bitch is very liberating, fun and spontaneous.
“As a people-pleaser, it’s really lovely to play someone who is completely not that. Someone who is so literally unapologetic about who they are – or if they make people uncomfortable – that’s so liberating. The sheer audacity of the woman! It was deeply empowering to play a woman who really didn’t care.”
Class: The Audio Adventures volumes three and four are available to own now at £19.99 each as a limited edition CD box set (only 1,000 will be pressed of each volume) or £16.99 each on download from the Big Finish website.
