True "Class" and another great spin off from the Doctor Who universe
1 February 2017 | by DelennMoresbySee all my reviews

The series class seems to have split audiences rather dramatically. The majority, myself included, rate the programme highly, but the minority that don't, really seem to hate it. I can't see why anyone who likes sci-fi would dislike it so much, having said that, appreciation of anything is a subjective thing. I wouldn't normally do this, but some off the criticism has been so extreme and unfair, l think it justified to counter them as part of the review. Coal Hill School/Acadamy is a place that sporadically appears in Doctor Who as a place where strange occurrences happen with some regularity. Being a school does mean the main protagonists are students and staff, but that's as near to being Buffy The Vampire Slayer that it gets. It's not a knock off Buffy as some claim as the "universes" they inhabit are completely different. A few critical reviewers claim that "sexuality" looms too large and there are unnecessarily gruesome moments but it's also untrue. Class happens now and in all aspects of character traits, storyline and development is simply up to date. We live in a time of great social change and that is reflected in the writing in a factual non judgemental way. I suspect that some were expecting the show to be pitched at a family audience like Doctor Who, but it was not intended to be. In that sense, as Torchwood was designed to be more grown up than Doctor Who, Class takes that further and is clearly intended for a maturer audience than that. It has grown up themes presented in a grown up way and is patently for an adult audience. I love the individual stories and the overall story arc. It's extremely well written and,m importantly for me, consistent itself and with where it fits into the Doctor Who universe. Patrick Ness has done a great job. As has to be expected a little time has to be spent developing the characters, but I think it was done well and doesn't affect the pace of the show. All the actors give really good performances. I'd be remiss if I didn't say that Katherine Kelly and Greg Austin are superb. Kelly in particular is an actor of such immense and versatile talent that her name alone makes me want to watch a programme and she does not disappoint. Sometimes a viewer has to get used to what they are watching and have to allow character introduction. It as true for Class as any series, but the show is never hindered by it. My advise would be, if you aren't sure about the show at the start, keep watching as you won't regret it.
