Doctor Who spin-off 'Class' will have LGBT representation in a lead character
The show's creator Patrick Ness decided to share the surprise with fans a little earlier than scheduled
The Doctor Who spin-off ‘Class’ will have LGBT representation in a lead character, showrunner Patrick Ness has revealed.
The author and screenwriter behind the new BBC3 series, set at Coal Hill School, shared the news via Twitter – a little earlier than scheduled.
The show follows in the footsteps of Torchwood, which also featured an LGBT lead – John Barrowman’s Jack Harkness and Gareth David-Lloyd’s Ianto Jones went on to become one of Doctor Who’s most beloved pairings.
It’s not clear if the new character will be played by Greg Austin, Fady Elsayed or another lead cast member.
