What did You Think of Class Episode 1?

It’s a new term at Coal Hill Academy, and students are preparing for their Autumn Prom. But when the school comes under attack from the monstrous Shadow Kin, four alienated students must form an unlikely alliance to defeat them.

Charlie, April, Ram and Tanya, assisted by their physics teacher Miss Quill, are now charged with a great responsibility by the mysterious alien known as ‘The Doctor’: to guard against the creatures of nightmare, who want nothing more than to find a way through to Earth and take it for their own.

And this incursion is only the beginning…

Class is available to order on DVD or blu-ray from

    it’s just occured to me that since the this show refers to the rip in space and time as “the crack”, it’s really unfortunate that there’s a character called “ram” in it, because if ever there’s an episode where ram enters the rip in space and time, it leaves the show wide open to a whole bunch of “ram in the crack” jokes XD

    Ep 3 appears to be set out and about the streets/other public places also, Londons a big city, I’m sure they won’t limit themselves too much.

    I think the gun has different settings. When the shadow creature links itself to a person the gun must be set to kill both the victim and the shadow otherwise it doesn’t work because they are linked. Before the shadow creatures have linked themselves to a victim they can be killed by the other setting on the gun.

    I think Charlie can use the gun when ever he wants because it once belonged to his people. Miss Quill can only fire it if she’s using it to protect Charlie (that’s why it vaporised that other student). I think?

    Kids that can’t act? It’s usually young adults (around 18-25) who play teenagers in TV shows. Maybe it’s because you thought of the series jungle episode with those younger annoying kids, but because the teenagers were in sixth form, I knew the acting would be good. Because I watch stuff like The Inbetweeners, Some Girls and Bad Education, which are about teenagers in year 11/sixth form, I knew the acting in Class would be good

    Just noticed a ‘W. Tardif’ and Susan foreman on the honors board in episode 1

    Could Charlie use the gun in episode 1 because he was the prince of the Rodia (pretty sure that’s a Star Wars planet) and it wouldn’t kill him if he used it I’ve forgotten if it was explained or not. I don’t understand why the gun kills both shooter and victim

    He knows the name Clara Oswald as somebody he used to know but he wouldn’t remember the face I don’t think but then again Steven moffatt has a habit of brushing things under the carpet so I wouldn’t be surprised if he remembers her perfectly well some time in the future without explanation

    He’d still remember Susan, not to mention Danny Pink who is also on the list.

    Besides he still knows *of* Clara. He can’t remember her but can remember everything else that happened around her so he can piece together things from the hole she left behind.

    Im curious, when the Doctor saw the names list and it reads Oswald, C, why did it appear that he remembered it? Didnt Clara wipe his memory of her in Hell Bent just before she left with Ashildr?

    Its not until you watch something like this that you realise just how clever the writing is in Doctor Who (the writers have to figure out how to engage children, teens, YA and oldies). I know this is aimed at the YA age group so its no suprise that as an older fan I struggled to engage with the characters and the plot.

    However, from the comments this does seem to have hit its target audience which is a success. I wish it the best of luck but I won’t be tuning in again.

    Who would of thought that a spin off set in Coal Hill School would be so interesting? The characters are brilliant. This show has great potential. Hopefully it does not limit itself with it being stuck in one setting
