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…

Class: Nightvisiting review

With the third episode of the first series of Class, writer Patrick Ness focusses on Tanya (Vivian Oparah) in Nightvisiting. My favourite episode so far, a lot to enjoy and many of the regulars get something relevant to do without feeling forced. It’s a better made piece of TV than the previous two episodes and genuinely spooky….

Halloween update for Doctor Who Legacy

The latest Tiny Rebel Games newsletter promises us a Halloween level, some Halloween gem skins and a Davros costume for the Twelfth Doctor. Behind the scenes we are due a new client to resolve some backup problems and the end of  the FaceBook version. I wonder when we will get some Class characters? I predict sooner than later! ???…

Class: The Coach With… review

The second episode of Class was released online at the same time as For Tonight We Might Die…  and again Patrick Ness is the writer for The Coach With the Dragon Tattoo. No sign of the Doctor, instead our teen heroes and warrior teacher Miss Quill have to deal with the aftermath of the prom and a new challenge. It…

Class: For Tonight We Might Die… review

So, let’s all get on and enjoy the lives we have, For Tonight We Might Die… Class is here, and I for one think (despite things I will criticise) it made a good start and I was mostly gripped. I’m keen to see the second episode and think it holds promise.

Class is not mini Doctor Who

As part of the pre-launch publicity for Class, the Radio Times has gone behind the scenes. Not all of this is new stuff, but I do like the point made lower down about the show’s identity. Only a couple of days to wait but I remain optimistic. +++ Message Ends +++

Class is looking good

So, with only eight days to go until the first two episodes of Class are online (10 am, Saturday 22nd October UK time). Katherine Kelly is already shining as Miss Quill, and indeed drinking a cup of what looks like tea! If you watch the trailer there’s plenty of action and character and the show doesn’t need…

Three Class books announced

So, BBC 3 will start letting us see Class from October 22, 2016 and a few days later (October 27) we can also buy some Class books. Does this mean we might get some class audios from the BBC at some point? Can we already start wondering when Big Finish will get the license?
