Big Finish is going back to Coal Hill Academy for six new full cast audio adventures, based on the television series created by Patrick Ness, in arrangement with BBC Studios.
Class is back in session! Due for release in April 2020, the Doctor Who spin-off series returns for two new volumes, each available for pre-order over at the Big Finish website as a limited edition box set for £19.99, or on download at £14.99.
Alongside the series regulars, Greg Austin (Charlie Smith), Sophie Hopkins (April MacLean) and Fady Elsayed (Ram Singh), two new faces are joining the cast.
Dervla Kirwan, familiar to many as the star of TV series Ballykissangel and Goodnight Sweetheart, takes over from Katherine Kelly in the role of witty alien exile, Miss Quill.
And Joanna McGibbon steps into the shoes of Vivian Oparah as student prodigy, Tanya Adeola.
The six new stories included in the forthcoming Class box sets are as follows:
The Soers’ Ditch by Carl Rowens
Catfish by Kate Thorman
Sweet Nothings by Michael Dennis
Mock by Alfie Shaw
The Creeper by Lizzie Hopley
The Queen of Rhodia by Blair Mowat
Producer and director of Class, Scott Handcock, said:
“When we first announced we were reviving Class on audio, I think the response took everyone by surprise, and it became clear to everyone there was an appetite for more adventures with these characters. And now we have even more! As before, they’re set within the television series, tackling urban legends, intergalactic romances, mock exams and an abandoned Shoreditch house on Halloween!
Greg, Sophie, Fady and Jordan return as Charlie, April, Ram and Matteusz respectively, with a couple of new cast members lending their vocals to familiar characters. Although we were unable to secure the talents of Vivian Oparah and Katherine Kelly, I’m thrilled to welcome Joanna McGibbon as Tanya Adeola and Dervla Kirwan as Miss Quill into the Class family. They’re both such brilliant actors and really capture the unique attitudes of their characters.”
