A series of new pictures have been released from the hugely anticipated Doctor Who spin-off ‘Class’ featuring The Doctor and new bad guy Corikinus.
Corikinus played by PAUL MARK DAVIES is The Shadow Leader and the new threat awaiting the students of Coal Hill School. Davies is no stranger to the world of Doctor Who spin-off following his portrayal as The Trickster in ‘The Sarah Jane Adventures’ and as the Cowled Leader in ‘Torchwood – Exit Wounds’.
And The Doctor (PETER CAPALDI) is no stranger to monsters threating to take over the earth as he faces off against this new enemy in episode 1 ‘For Tonight We Might Die’. Capaldi has just a cameo in this new series but these pictures indicate that we may get another of his wonderful speeches.
KATHERINE KELLY is also on hand as no-nonsense teacher Miss Quill as she teams up with The Doctor against Corikinus. More on her in our next post…
Episode 1 ‘For Tonight We Might Die’ and episode 2 ‘The Coach With The Dragon Tattoo’ will premiere on BBC Three on the 22nd October from 10am.
This new young adult drama comes from the pen of writer Patrick Ness. It stars Greg Austin, Sophie Hopkins, Fady Elsayed and Vivian Oparh, assisted by their physics teacher Miss Quill (Katherine Kelly) who are charged with a great responsibility by the mysterious alien known as the Doctor (Peter Capaldi) to guard against the creatures of nightmare that wants nothing more than to find a way through to Earth and take it for their own.
