Katherine Kelly joins “Class” the new Doctor Who Spinoff

Katherine Kelly (The Night Manager, Mr Selfridge, Happy Valley, Life on Mars) has cast as the lead actor in Patrick Ness’ new Doctor Who spinoff Class.

Kelly will play a teacher at Coal Hill School, an institution that has been part of the Whoniverse since its inception in 1963. The students of the Class will be played by newbies Greg Austin, Fady Elsayed, Sophie Hopkins and Vivian Oparah.

Filming starts this week but no broadcast date has been revealed.

Doctor Who and Class exec producer Steven Moffat likened the series to a British version of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer.”

“There’s nothing more exciting than meeting stars that nobody’s heard of yet. We had the read through of the first few episodes last week, and there was a whole row of them,” said Moffet. “Coal Hill School has been part of ‘Doctor Who’ since the very first shoot in 1963, but this new show is anything but history. ‘Class’ is dark and sexy and right now. I’ve always wondered if there could be a British ‘Buff’— it’s taken the brilliant Patrick Ness to figure out how to make it happen.”
