Katherine Kelly has been conspicuous by her absence during the recent promotion run for the new Doctor Who spin-off ‘Class’.

But in these new pictures, she proves that she is a force to reckoned with.

From being a Coal Hill student stealing strange alien tech, to throwing heavy objects across the classroom as a teacher, to conflict with student Charlie (Greg Austin) and Inspector Jami Reid-Quarrell, this woman means business!

For those that don’t know this versatile actress, Kelly has appeared in a wide range of TV shows including Mr Selfridge, Happy Valley, The Night Manager and of course Coronation Street. A resume that has perfect qualifications.

“Whoever you are, I am what waits for you. I am war its self”

But there are hints of a dare say vulnerable side. An inner struggle. A darker sorrowful past.
