Connections DW & TW Connections: Class by DJ Forrest


DW & TW Connections:

Class

Class, the Doctor Who spin off, has received a lot of mixed reviews, and although initially having taken on board these views of the show, I listened to someone who rated it highly and checked it out for myself. With Steven Moffat at the helm, however, you expect to find every episode to be mind-blowingly unexplainable. Such as the Fish in the Fog, which I never did understand, but then, I guess it depends if you’re a fan of Terry Pratchett or not.
Class however, was wonderfully and deliciously gory which for a series I initially thought would be a CBBC favourite, being a spin off. Expecting it to be like The Sarah Jane Adventures meets Wizards Vs Aliens, I was pleasantly surprised to find that it’s gorier than Torchwood, with a crazy team you could have picked from Buffy, with a slight touch of WvA but without the crazy alien face in the wall.

So much so, that having watched all 7 episodes back to back on iPlayer, I can’t wait for the next story.
SO, given that at least more than a handful of the cast have appeared in Doctor Who at some point, I was more than a little surprised to find that a lot of the Crew had been involved in both Who & Torchwood.

We’ve done the research so you don’t have to. Unless of course you want to find out everything that Steven Moffat has done since he wrote his first ever episode of Doctor Who back in the day.
