Class Series 1 Episode 1 Review – For Tonight We Might Die

Class starts as any typical Doctor Who episode might: someone’s running from a monster in a darkened corridor. In beginning this way, there’s a clear connection to the parent show; we know right away that, at the end of the day, what we’re getting out of this is going to be engaging, it’s going to be fun, it’s going to be an adventure. And yet immediately Class subverts this with their titles sequence, emphasising that in spite of the similarities to Doctor Who, Class is very much its own show with a fresh energy and its own identity.

I was quite fond of the opening episode of Class – it felt like a pretty competent beginning to the show, with a lot of promise for what was to come.

This is the first of a series of reviews I wrote about Class when it was first airing. Given how long ago that now was, and how much I still find myself thinking about Class, I’m planning on writing about them again… at some point!
