Behind the Scenes of Class with Fady Elsayed

Created by YA author Patrick Ness, the Doctor Who spinoff began filming in Cardiff in April.

The eight-part series will premiere in the UK on BBC Three this autumn and in the US on BBC America later this year.

Class will also air on BBC One in the UK following its online debut.

The show’s cast includes Greg Austin, Fady Elsayed, Sophie Hopkins and Vivian Oparah as four Sixth Formers, with Katherine Kelly (Coronation Street) playing a “powerful” teacher at Coal Hill School and Doctor Who actor Nigel Betts reprising the role of Mr Armitage.

Peter Capaldi is also believe to have filmed a cameo role in Class as the Doctor.

We can’t wait, mon ami!


Haven’t watched Doctor Who in a while (that damn episode where Moon is a giant egg of a space creature who immediately lays another egg of the exact same size as itself once it hatched was the last straw), but this exchange always makes me smile.
