Class comes to NetFlix

If you want to remind yourself of just what happened in Class ahead of it arriving on audio, UK viewers (and maybe world-wide) with NetFlix can now stream the whole series. Plenty of time reassess this seres before deciding to give the audios a go! !!! Message Ends !!!

Back to Class for Big Finish

It’s not announced yet (officially on the BF site), but it’s been widely assumed Class is being made for audio by Big Finish. We’ve had multiple social media hints and now in an early reveal of the next DWM, we learn of two boxsets, set during the time of the TV series, so no solution to…

Class dismissed

As we’d long suspected (and Patrick Ness’s departure was a big clue), Class is no more. If you read my reviews, I quite liked this show, it had flaws but some potential. James Baldock wrote a good piece for the Metro newspaper: Doctor Who spin-off Class is axed – why didn’t it work? It’s a good piece, makes…

Class lives on?

No sooner am I reporting the demise of Class, than I find an official fan-fiction site! It’s on Mixtal, as is the Doctor Who site: Class: FanFiction. Who knows, give it ten to twenty years, and it might come back bigger, shinier and renewed!

Patrick Ness leaves the Class

Not that there was much suggestion series two might be happening, but Patrick Ness has made it clear, via the medium of twitter, he will not be involved in any new series. He held out until the end of the BBC America run, but has now made it public. The odds were against a follow-on,…

Miss Quill’s OFSTED review

Thanks to BBC America for posting a copy of Miss Quill’s OFSTED review on twitter. BBC America are well worth following on twitter, do take a look. &&& Message Ends &&&

Class: The Lost – review

As the first season of Class comes to an end, Patrick Ness takes no prisoners in The Lost. It was action packed, it shuffled the deck and nobody came out untransformed. Was it any good? Yes, I believe it was. There are some bits I have qualms about, but overall a decent piece of entertainment.

Class: … What Quill Did review

So, week 7 and we find out what Miss Quill while the Class were in detention. With the full title of The Metaphysical Engine, or What Quill did, the best we could do was to expect the unexpected. Did Patrick Ness deliver with the latest episode? Short answer: Yes; long answer, read on…

Class: The Stone House review on Starburst

I’ve reviewed the AK Benedict Class novel The Stone House over on Starburst. I think all novels written as a series starts have their work cut out and this makes a reasonable stab at solving the problem. The review is: CLASS: THE STONE HOUSE. &&& Message Ends &&&

Class: Detained – review

With Detained, Patrick Ness is adopting a device often used in Doctor Who by having the main cast split across two episodes allowing for breaks in the actors’ schedules and also saving money. In this case, Class not only peeled the teenage leads away from Miss Quill, but also managed one of those inward looking…

Class: Brave-ish heart review

Patrick Ness keeps up the good work in Class: Brave-ish Heart and hearts are very much a theme with the word being used in almost every scene. To recap the first part, Co-owner of a Lonely Heart, April has gained amazing powers and needs to go to fight the Shadowkin; her father appeared, her mother got changed…

Class: …lonely heart review

Patrick Ness’s fourth episode of the first series of Class was Co-owner of a Lonely Heart, more than a little allusion to the similarly named Yes track. I’ve seen some complaints about pacing and plot but for me this is hugely entertaining and as good as the rest of the series. Here are my thoughts…
