On the 4th of April, BBC Three revealed the cast of it’s upcoming Doctor Who spin-off called Class (2016). The announcement video is below.
Honestly, until I saw this video, I had no idea a Doctor Who spin-off was on the way, and I was very surprised. As a Whovian, I am always excited at the idea of discovering a new side of the Whoniverse, but I am not sure just yet what to think about Class.
My main concern is that, as a Young Adult TV show, it might not have the same Doctor Who spirit we know and love, that it might steer away too much from its mother show. Of course, as a spin-off, it has to have something a little different about it, but I hope that we will get more than just an occasional reference to some Doctor Who events.
It is too early to say, though. I cannot wait for the first trailer to come out and provide some much needed clarifications.
What do you think, fellow Whovians? Are you somewhat excited?
