Class Casting

Fun fact: I actually knew about this casting announcement ahead of time for once and tried to get up five and half hours ago to make it but was too tired. It's 9:37am now, and I'm still tired.

The main cast will consist of Greg Austin, Fady Elsayed, Sophie Hopkins, Vivian Oparah, and Katherine Kelly. No word on who their characters are. The press release states that years of time traveling has damaged time at Coal Hill School (the setting of the show) and something is pressing in from the other side. It also sounds like the Doctor (or someone else powerful) is hiding someone at the school. Showrunner Patrick Ness commented,
We searched far and wide for this amazing cast, fantastic actors who understand what we’re aiming for with this show. And how lucky we are to get Katherine Kelly! She’s been stunning in Happy Valley, The Night Manager and Mr Selfridge, just wait until you see her here.
Steven Moffat said,
There’s nothing more exciting than meeting stars that nobody’s heard of yet. We had the read through of the first few episodes last week, and there was a whole row of them. Coal Hill School has been part of Doctor Who since the very first shoot in 1963, but this new show is anything but history. Class is dark and sexy and right now. I’ve always wondered if there could be a British Buffy - it’s taken the brilliant Patrick Ness to figure out how to make it happen.
The video has some feature where you have to drag it around to actually see everything.
