    There is an interesting small page-panel on CLASS by Ben Dowell in this week’s issue of the Radio Times 25 Feb-3 Mar 2017 (Which state’s – Word is it won’t be back, even if the official line from the BBC is: “No Decision has been made”) Still be nice to know one way or the other? More annoying would be the stupid cliff-hanger ending that will never get resolved?

      I hope it doesn’t come back definitely one of the worst things produced related to Doctor Who, truly abysmal.

    Doctor Who…is getting kind of stale now…

    Steven Moron keeps on taking it in as if it is a kid show, not a family show.
    also, he makes more like his own show that he created.

    Moffet the audience is not a bunch of little kids, they are people!

      It might not just be Moffat, it could be his higher ups (e.g. The BBC controllers) that are telling him to make it for younger audiences as not to stir controversy. I mean, Moffat didn’t have anything to do with Class, unless I am misremembering something, he was busy doing Sherlock instead. Moffat has written some terrible (in my opinion) stories (E.g HELL BENT) but we can’t place all the shows problems on him.

      And think, in a year we have a new show-runner.

    Im just going to say: people not fans of Torchwood, which has a gay male lead character and some LGBT themes. The same response seems to be for Class too. Which has a teenage male character with a boyfriend.

    Class is beyond THE WORST THING THAT HAS EVER COME OUT OF DOCTOR WHO!!! It was: boring, had childish humour and was just downright dreadful, I look back when doctor who started and it was a well thought out exciting TV show for the family, class is NONE of those things, I wish it was never created and we just didn’t have any Doctor Who this year!

    Why do these things have to be aimed at the “yoof” market instead of just anybody over 18 as well? Torchwood was better as it was more universally adult even if it was too centred in one time and place. Would rather, like a Star Trek crossover series, have characters having their own battles with Daleks/Cybermen et al which could on occasion in big story arcs link up with Doctor Who itself but that would probably cost the BBC too much and be too much of a diversion from the parent series.

    They just won’t let it die then…
    I’m sorry, but it’s an awful show.

      How is it awful?

      I agree, never liked the show. It may sound mean to say this, I mean the ‘Not liking the show part’ is just my opinion, I think this may have been a wake up called to the BBC. They now know they can’t just give us something no-one wants and expect it to be watched just because its Doctor Who related in a year with no Who. I think that was the main reason they made Class, as filler.

    I tried it and it didn’t do it for me. Same as torchwood, just couldn’t get into it. Be nice if there is a second series for the people who liked it, but like I say, just not my taste.

    I recorded it to my TV and watched it at about that time every week anyway because it felt right watching it when it was late so I think it’s a perfect time. Glad that’s it’s all going to be repeated

    I know Mum wants to watch it so, now she can…

    I don’t see the point. It will be out on DVD soon and it’s on iplayer and 10:45 is quite late so there won’t be that much viewers. There’s just no point.

    10:45? I don’t think that many people are going to be bothered, not at that time anyway…
