Doctor Who spin-off Class has been dismissed

September 9th, 2017 by Marc Comments

To the surprise of no-one at all, the Doctor Who spin-off Class has been cancelled.

Honestly, we thought it already was.

Apparently not.

BBC Three controller Damian Kavanagh said: “No, [we’re not bringing it back]. There was nothing wrong with it.

“In honesty, it just didn’t really land for us on BBC Three. Things sometimes don’t, and I’ve got to make decisions about what we’re going to do from a drama point of view.

“There’s always times when you do something and you have to decide that it’s not going to come back. Class is just one of those things.”

In fairness, even the most hardcore of Who fans here at FTN never really warmed to the series so maybe it should be no surprise.

Also, given the changes at Doctor Who right now – new showrunner, new Doctor – maybe the BBC wants a clean slate to begin again.

Whatever the case, it seems Class has… been dismissed.

Yeah, I went there.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
