Capaldi Confirmed For “Who” Spin-Off “Class”

Peter Capaldi is confirmed to playing The Doctor in the opening episode of “Class,” the upcoming “Doctor Who” spin-off series which launches late October in the UK on BBC3.

In the new show, which is targeting a teen and young adult audience, the action takes place at the Coal Hill Academy school where students balance their ordinary teen lives with more extraordinary situations.

As Class begins, it seems that the various visits the Doctor has made to the Coal Hill School has caused the fabric of time to thin, and something is waiting on the other side with intentions to kill everyone. Katherine Kelly, Greg Austin, Fady Elsayed, Sophie Hopkins, and Vivian Oparah all star.

Patrick Ness (“A Monster Calls”) created the series which Steven Moffat and Brian Minchin will produce.
