Peter Capaldi to Appear in Premiere Episode of Doctor Who Spin-Off "Class"
The young adult Doctor Who spin-off "Class" is coming in spring of 2017, and after plenty of rumors, the show has officially confirmed that the Twelfth Doctor, Peter Capaldi, will appear in the first episode.



This doesn't come as a huge surprise, and will likely help build the hype for this show considerably. The question is: does this confirm that Jenna Coleman will appear as Clara Oswald? Capaldi recently stated that he shot scenes with Coleman-as-Clara, right around the time that Class would have been filming. And since it takes place at Coal Hill Secondary School, where Clara taught in seasons eight and nine, we can probably expect a guest appearance at some point.

We still haven't seen any significant footage from the series, which is a little weird, considering that BBC announced they would release the first two episodes on streaming service BBC Three on October 22. But that doesn't necessarily mean there are any problems, since the show won't air in its entirety until next year. If this turns out to be the "Doctor Who meets Degrassi" type of TV show we never knew we wanted.
