Doctor Who Spinoff: "Class" - Coming Next Year

Breaking news, a new spinoff of Doctor Who titled "Class" is coming next year! Steven Moffatt and Brian Minchin will be the executive producers, and young adult author, Patrick Ness, will be the showrunner. Class will be set in contemporary London at Coal Hill School, the school where Clara teaches, as well as being the school where the Doctor's granddaughter, Susan Foreman, attended during the first episode of Doctor Who back in 1963. Ness is known for the YA novels "Chaos Walking" trilogy and "A Monster Calls," so it is obvious that the show is trying to capture a younger demographic. 

Coal Hill certainly has a long running history in the Doctor Who franchise. However, considering how awful the child acting was during the episodes that took place at the school, I have a bad feeling. Last time the Doctor Who franchised tried to target a younger audience, the result was the "Sarah Jane Adventures," and while one season aired in the US (I thought it was cancelled until years later), it was bad, very bad. While nothing is confirmed, assumably Jenna Coleman will star in the series after she leaves Doctor Who. Otherwise, who else would else star in the series? My guess is that her role will be setup during this season of Doctor Who, so that might tie into the crew at UNIT. As always, I try to be cautiously optimistic, so we will just have to wait and see. What do you think? Please comment below and let me know!
