First Episode Fun
22 October 2016 | by myangel109See all my reviews

I came across this by accident as I was vaguely only aware that they were doing a new Doctor Who spin off in a school. I am a huge fan of who (currently wearing a Dr WHo Christmas Jumper 2 months too soon).

Anyway on to the review.. this is a great pilot, I had no idea that it was a Who spin off until about 25% in which makes it accessible to a new fans and doesn't require background knowledge of the source material. When I started watching it, I felt there was an Americanized atmosphere to the school and compared to other British productions (Teachers, Skins, even Sarah Jane).

I am a massive fan of shows like Buffy and I enjoyed the reference and homage that they play to these shows. This show aired the same week as another 'British Buffy' type E4 show called 'Crazyhead' and I felt this was much better.
