Class, which was initially released on BBC3 before landing on BBC1, is set to the backdrop of Coal Hill School (the school of the Doctor’s granddaughter, Susan; and the workplace of his last companion, Clara). It follows a group of teenagers as they navigate not only the perils of adolescence, but the literal perils of a shadowy alien force.
On BBC1, Class was screened as a late night double bill, where it struggled to find an audience.
Ness expressed his bafflement about BBC1’s scheduling on Twitter…
I remain baffled by the sched decisions of BBC1, which were odd for a critically-acclaimed show. But again, I'm so grateful for the chance!
