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.
After months of build up and anticipation, the brand new Doctor Who spin off has finally landed. It’s a new term. Fear is coming. Tragedy is coming. But was Class worth the wait?
The first episode of Patrick Ness’ 8-part series took us back to Coal Hill School on the eve of their Autumn Prom, but finding a date was the least of the students’ worries (maybe not for April!) as the corridors were being haunted by sinister shadows and the mysterious disappearance of a fellow pupil was the first in a series of extra terrestrial occurrences that forged the rise of the almighty Shadow Kin. Where is the Doctor when you need him, eh?!
Well, just a stone’s throw away, as it turns out, as everybody’s favourite Time Lord was on hand to help save the day from the malevolent Corakinus, though it is our new generation of honourable heroes that stole the show as an unlikely allegiance was formed to defend Earth and its inhabitants from the horrors that reside inside the crack in time and space…
Under the, albeit reluctant, watch of the devilish Miss Quill, April, Ram, Charlie and Tanya are already a force to be reckoned with, but did For Tonight We Might Die turn out to be the introduction you were hoping for?
