B032 Class – The Doctor Who Spin-off

Browse the WBW Podcast


It’s a Whovian “Buffy The Vampire Slayer” with bits of “Captain Planet” and tentacle porn. We review the Doctor Who spin-off, CLASS.

Some months after the first and possibly only series of the Doctor Who spin-off, Class, aired, our review of this young-adult take on the Whoniverse — previously thought (a) lost (cause) — has resurfaced to whisper sweet nothings into your hungry ear-balls.

Yep, that’s right. It took some doing, but this review actually came together against all odds, despite it having been recorded on a very dodgy Skype connection, Flapjack’s broken mic headset et al. We had a lot to say about it. Listen to this podcast episode to hear us discuss:

  • The first three episodes of Class, i.e. For Tonight We Might Die, The Coach with the Dragon Tattoo (yeah, I realise now that they were already clever enough to name it that — listen to our review for context), and Nightvisiting
  • Why the dad in the show doesn’t seem phased by the fact that his son’s bionic or that there are aliens in his school
  • Similarities between Class and Buffy the Vampire Slayer
  • Similarities between Class and Captain Planet
  • 40 year-olds playing high school students
  • The role of Sex and Violence in the Whoniverse
  • Our theories regarding the future of the Cole Hill Academy characters
  • Why Cole Hill School is now Cole Hill Academy
  • Tentacle erotica

Oh, and here a screenshot of Flapjack eating a banana. Again, listen to our review for context.
