Katherine Kelly leads the Class

katherine kelly classThe BBC has announced casting details (and a bit more) for new Doctor Who spin-off Class. Centre stage is a new teacher played by Katherine Kelly (pictured). Katherine has appeared in many recent dramas (Happy Valley, Night Manager, Mr Selfridge) but I am most familiar with her work from a period of watching Coronation Street some years ago, where she was excellent.

Some details

Other cast members include new talents Greg Austin, Fady Elsayed, Sophie Hopkins and Vivian Oparah. There is also this tease:

“Time has looked at your faces now. And time never forgets…”

What if your planet was massacred and you were the sole survivor?

What if a legendary figure out of space and time found you a place to hide?

But what if the things that want to kill you have tracked you down?

And worst of all, what if you haven’t studied for your A-Levels…?

Already touted as the British Buffy, the continued exploits at Coal Hill School hit BBC 3 in eight episodes later this year.
