Peter Capaldi Will Guest Star in Opening Episode of Class

Well, we all knew it would happen but now its official - the Doctor himself will turn up to help launch the latest Doctor Who spin-off Class...

Oh, it's been an arid year for us Doctor Who fans. With no Series Ten until April 2017, we've been starved for new material. Thankfully, the wait will be over next month when Class arrives - bringing the Doctor with it, for a special guest appearance!

We also now know that the show will premiere on 22nd October, with the first two episodes arriving on the online BBC Three channel (via BBC IPlayer). Here are the two episode titles:

And here's a new promo image to boot. Nice to know the show will be taking Doctor Who's place as compulsory Saturday night viewing. 

From left to right, we have Vivian Oparah, Greg Austin, Katherine Kelly, Sophie Hopkins and Fady Elsayed. A lot of info is still tightly under wraps about the show but we do know that Austin is playing Charlie, Kelly is Miss Quill and Hopkins is April. Austin has also described his character as the "leader" in a Q+A on the official Class Facebook page, which suggests he is the main character. A fact sort of supported by the poster above. This is a bit of a surprise, as previous photos have focussed on Hopkin's character, which would also make sense considering Class's big inspiration - Buffy the Vampire Slayer. 

Only a month to go until the Doctor's back on our screens! Until then, Class dismissed.
