From the Universe of Doctor Who. Time has looked at your faces now. And time never forgets...It's a new term at Coal Hill Academy, and students are preparing for their Autumn Prom. But when the school comes under attack from deadly monsters, four alienated students must form an unlikely alliance to defeat them. Like all teenagers, these four students have hidden secrets and desires. They are facing their own worst fears, navigating a life of friends, parents, school work, sex, sorrow - and possibly the end of existence. And this incursion is only the beginning...Charlie, April, Ram and Tanya, under the watchful eye of Physics teacher Miss Quill, are now charged with a great responsibility by the mysterious alien known as The Doctor: protect Coal Hill and guard against the creatures of nightmare that want nothing more than to find a way through to Earth and take it for their own.
Poor spin off of the Dr Who franchise featuring a whole set of annoying kids, held together by their teacher Miss Quill (who seems to be the only proper actress/actor in the whole setup - the lovely Katherine Kelly). Too much over-reaction, too much of the kids working out what to do in a galactic war (as if they would know)... and why does every Dr Who spinoff now have to have gay characters in it? Too much influence by Russell T Davies?

Not great, barely watchable
- Class: Series 1 review by H
As the previous reviewer states this is a Doctor Who spin-off, unfortunately more in the vein of current Who than that of 15 years ago. Despite the setting being Coal Hill School (where the first original episode was set) & the presence of Doctor 12/ Capaldi there is little to link this show with the entertaining freewheeling fun of either original Who or NuWho when "they get it right". This is a sort of sub standard mashup of Skins, Misfits & the merest iota of Who while living up to none of the preceding. When the viewer is paying more attention to their phone than the events onscreen.... Tbqh I couldn't tell you how it ended as I couldn't even be bothered with the last few episodes. There's better out there (not least earlier episodes of the programme this was spun off from) that would fill ones time more entertainingly.
