Still reeling from the dramatic events of last week’s episode? Well, it turns out that’s only one side of the story…
Over the last few weeks, we’ve had character studies of all the main Class cast. Sorry, let us correct that: all except one. In the penultimate episode of the series, Miss Quill at last takes centre stage. It’s time to see what she was getting up to while the rest of the crew were detained in detention. And it’s probably not what you were expecting…
After helping to save Earth in the mid-series two-parter, Quill was made a promise. The mysterious headmistress Dorothea offered to give her back her freedom. It’s time for that promise to be fulfilled. With the kids locked away in the classroom and unable to interfere, Quill joins Dorothea on an extraordinary mission. With a strange new companion in tow, the group sets off to achieve the impossible. And we really do mean that quite literally.
Now, it’s no secret that (as already seen in Detained) Quill comes back from her journey a very different person. But how she reaches that point may shock, surprise, and terrify you. Prepare to explore her character like never before and see how far she will go. This is what her story arc has been building up to all this time.
Belief is a powerful thing: and for Miss Quill, it’s do or die…
Episode 7, The Metaphysical Engine, Or What Quill Did, will be available on BBC Three from 10am on Saturday 26th November. Class is written by Patrick Ness and directed by Ed Bazalgette.
With the gang trapped in detention and out of the way, Miss Quill accepts Dorothea’s astonishing offer: to help remove the Arn from her head, and to reclaim her freedom. Alongside Ballon, an imprisoned shape-shifter, Miss Quill travels in a metaphysical engine and is taken to impossible, extraordinary and dangerous worlds, collecting materials in preparation for her life-changing procedure. After an emotional encounter with her surgeon and a nearly-fatal operation, Miss Quill must find a way to return to Earth: transformed and ready for war.
