Class very much feels like a part of the Doctor Who universe, and I think that will be a really important factor when people start the series. To be specific, the format feels very reminiscent of actual episodes of Doctor Who that took place on earth, where some creature or secret group threatened us at some point and the Doctor and a group of the best of us, or whomever was on the scene at the time, had to scramble to deal with it. Thats in a sense what class is. The doctor even makes a notable appearance in the pilot episode.

Class centers around a group of high-school students (of course who look way older than highschool students) who become inexplicably involved in a highly volatile situation involving the fate of the planet. It's fun, its goofy, and its very 'Whoviesque'.

Some problems I had with the pilot were an overwhelming amount of supernatural ridiculousness mixed in with what feels like deep and authentic character writing. That in a sense, is what Doctor Who is all about, however its gotten a lot better as it's gone along at avoiding being alltogether too cheesy, and Class, in its infancy has not - so it feels extremely corny right now. The 2nd episode however takes an extremely surprising and dark turn. In fact, elements of the follow up episode are some of the most gruesome and disgusting I've ever seen on TV -- and I've seen 4 seasons 4 Bones. So now we've got a whimsical, goofy, corny, super dark and disgusting high-school drama with well-written authentic characters... I think it needs to pick and choose the right elements of these, and leave behind the corny, because it didn't really work for me. But maybe it will work more for you. For me, the darkness of that 2nd episode, and the emotional depth of the writing juxtaposed to the super goofy monsters only served to highlight just how corny it actually is.

But all in all, It should be one hell of an adventure that I think every Whovian should at least check out for themselves.

Really enjoying this show. Good drama, good characters, interesting plots, monsters. I'm liking pretty much all aspects. Hope it gets renewed.

I am not a Doctor Who fan (I've never watched it or any of the spin-offs), so I did't embark on my binge with high expectations. The trailer seemed intriguing so I thought that I'd have a gander and see what the Doctor Who universe has to offer.

I think that some parts of this show have been done really well, such as the comic relief and dry humour that British actors can pull off really well with their accents. I am particularly impressed by Quill and her 'I don't give a damn' attitude, although, deep down, she does care for the gang. There were some disappointing characters in the mix as well such as the Headmistress and more significantly, Charlie's boyfriend (I can't even remember his name). I feel like he didn't bring much to the screen in terms of dialogue and chemistry with Charlie.

Speaking of chemistry; it felt like relationships were rushed and just shoved together; in the first episode it seemed like Lucy might be into Charlie, then all of a sudden he randomly chose a guy to go to prom with him. Then after Ram's girlfriend was killed, he quickly started up with Lucy after a kiss. It just baffled me.

Maybe it's because I haven't been exposed to storytelling and visuals from the Doctor Who world, but it feels like there were some weak scenes, CGI and props which cheapened the look of the show. I didn't really care for some of the storylines with the Shadow Kin arc, particularly the back and forth threats to the gang and their families. I hope that future episodes will be a lot better and offer room for character development, as well as a focus on Quill's past as there is still so much mystery (how did she suddenly get pregnant?).

Yet another part of the Dr. Who universe, this one has far less optimism than Dr Who, and far less sex than Torchwood. It goes to some very dark places.

Still, the show is thoroughly enjoyable.

Class is a spin-off of "Doctor Who" and follows a group of young high-school students who will be fighting off some of the universes terrors. This British Teen Science Fiction show has very nice CGI effects and the cast is n good form, hitting their parts nicely. I personally don't like the story myself and have not watched "Doctor Who" but none the less will be watching in anticipation to see what happens next.

I don't like Doctor Who, so I was surprised that I actually enjoyed this show.
It does have it's cringy moments as every fantasy show. The shadow king plot was kind of... meh and cheesy, but other monsters were cool.
Characters were surprisingly good as well.
It had good humor, to some of the jokes I actually laughed out loud, which I don't do often.

Devastated this was cancelled. I love Doctor Who and all spinoffs so this was a win for me. I also like Patrick Ness so win win. But other people didn't like it and I have no idea why. *Sob*
