The Doctor Who spin off CLASS created by Young Adult author Patrick Ness returns in six new audio tales from Big Finish Productions. Coming out in August 2018, six new adventures from the world of Coal Hill Academy.
Coal Hill School (later Academy) was introduced in the first television episode of Doctor Who, An Unearthly Child, in 1963, and has had numerous appearances ever since including the 50th Anniversary Special, The Day of the Doctor. Class, a Doctor Who spin-off series created by young adult author Patrick Ness, consisted of eight episodes in a self-contained series that were broadcast in 2016. But Coal Hill Academy still has more secrets hidden in its walls…
Class is now returning on audio with six new adventures made in arrangement with BBC Studios. Set during the television series, Class is back in session with the original cast. Greg Austin plays Charlie Smith, Fady Elsayed plays Ram Singh, Sophie Hopkins plays April MacLean, Vivian Oparah plays Tanya Adeola, Jordan Renzo plays Matteusz Andrzejewski and Katherine Kelly plays Miss Andrea Quill. Spread over two volumes, the six new adventures find the students of Coal Hill Academy reunited and crossing paths with characters from the Doctor Who universe.
Seventh Doctor companion Ace, played by Sophie Aldred, returns to Coal Hill in an adventure following up her previous skirmish with the Daleks in the Doctor Who television episode, Remembrance of the Daleks.
