The Class crew must face the worst detention of their lives in this week’s chilling and claustrophobic episode. And they must face it alone…
Miss Quill punishes our heroes by throwing them together and locking them in a classroom for an hour. But that’s only the beginning of their troubles. A freak incident in the fabric of the universe leaves the gang stranded outside of time itself. Cut off from the rest of Coal Hill, and indeed all of reality, it’s up to our intrepid team to work together to escape.
However, that’s easier said than done. With only a small classroom to work around and emotions running high, it’s not long before cracks begin to show. Each of the cast faces harsh truths as their innermost thoughts spill out. It’s a claustrophobic tale in every sense. Just one set, just the main cast members, and no way out. Their only clue is a mysterious rock, but it only seems to provoke more resentment than resolution…
Expect a thorough exploration and interrogation of the protagonists: no one gets through this story unscathed. The scale may be small, but the tension has never been higher. At the very least, if this episode doesn’t make you want to behave at school, then perhaps nothing will.
Episode 6, Detained, will be available on BBC Three from 10am on Saturday 19th November. Class is written by Patrick Ness and directed by Ed Bazalgette.
The whole gang are thrown into detention by Miss Quill. Locked in her classroom, they are terrified when an explosion propels them out of space and time – trapped, claustrophobic, and floating in blackness with no way of escape. Although a mysterious asteroid fragment may be their key to freedom, it forces the gang to confess their deepest, darkest secrets to one another. As ugly truths come out, fractures start to appear in the friendship group. They later make a chilling discovery. They’re not alone. There’s somebody in there with them.
