The Doctor Who spin-off created by Young Adult author Patrick Ness will return in six new audio tales from Big Finish Productions, coming August 2018.

The spin-off, which consisted of one series of eight episodes broadcast in 2016, is set in Coal Hill School (later Academy), introduced in the first television episode of Doctor Who, An Unearthly Child, in 1963. Coal Hill School has had numerous appearances ever since, including the 50th Anniversary Special, The Day of the Doctor, but it still has more secrets hidden in its walls…

Class is now returning on audio with six new adventures made in arrangement with BBC Studios. Set during the television series, Class is back in session with the original cast: Greg Austin plays Charlie Smith, Fady Elsayed plays Ram Singh, Sophie Hopkins plays April MacLean, Vivian Oparah plays Tanya Adeola, Jordan Renzo plays Matteusz Andrzejewski and Katherine Kelly plays Miss Andrea Quill.
