1 Class Cancelled (or is it?) on Fri Feb 24, 2017 8:54 am

http://www.mirror.co.uk/tv/tv-news/doctor-who-spin-class-axed-9906600

GC on PMF posted this link for the Daily Mirror article but it seems they are the only outlet reporting it at the moment and it uses the tense 'to be' as if it hasn't happened yet. If it has been decided then it has, even if it isn't officially announced. It had an average AI of 70. That's Love and Monsters/Sleep No More territory

Anyway, it appears to be dead.

No real surprise there. The biggest shock was how well it seemed to do in its BBC One slot, they still weren't great, but I was expecting worse.

I can't find anyone other than The Mirror that confirms this. But I get the feeling that Nu Who products aren't going to get officially cancelled unless it's absolutely necessary, as it'd be an embarrassment for the Beeb. (there'll probably be an announcement about the cancellation tomorrow now I've said that!)

It's also yet to air in America, I'd wait until ratings there are more of an indicator whether or not they want to keep it

Well even The Mirror didn't confirm it, and even say in the article that the BBC hasn't made a decision. It's all speculation on their part given the ratings and a "source" saying the BBC are disappointed with it.

One of the comments brought up a point. "Also, most of the 1m viewers that watched the first 2 parter on BBC1 probably then watched the rest of the series online, because the entire series is still available to binge watch on BBC3."

I wonder how many viewers did binge it all after discovering it was a thing rather than wait a week to watch it on late night tv?

Maybe you shouldn't have done a cliffhanger without a recommission then, you useless prat.

Can we start a petition so they won't? I doubt Chibbers will want his own version of Who associated with that pile of crap.

Ness reckons it's done..and even if it wasn't, he's done writing any further episodes

Plans for Class' second series included Quill and her 'dangerous' son, a Weeping Angels civil war, and a trip to a planet infested with them

Agreed it was utter shit. Even more so than Torchwood at its absolute worst.

I wonder if this is one spinoff which BF won't bother picking up.

In fear every day, every evening
Scheduling decisions from above
Faithfully watched entire season
Painstaking devotion and love
Relentless defence of showrunner
From others who like Game of Thrones
A blindness that touches perfection
But only an apologist condones

Fandom I tried please believe me
I'm doing the best that I can
I'm ashamed of the clunkers I have written
I'm ashamed of the fraud that I am

Tolerate this pile of wank,
Politically correct bedroom action,

The BBC have officially cancelled the show. I don't know what took them so long. http://www.radiotimes.com/news/2017-09-07/doctor-who-spin-off-class-cancelled/

Good riddance to racist rubbish.

They should have done a Romana spin off instead. People would have liked that (as long as it wasn't racist like Class.)

Considering it wasn't even popular in DW circles, who is going to buy that?

The new stories will be spread out across two volumes. In the first: Gifted by Roy Gill, Life Experience by Jenny T Colgan and Tell Me You Love Me by Scott Handcock. And in the second: Everyone Loves Reagan by Tom Foley, Now You Know… by Tim Leng and In Remembrance by Guy Adams.

Want to bet "In Remembrance" will be the Dalek story or would that be too on the nose?

If they wrap up the angels cliffhanger I might try to pirate them at some point but I can't see anyone in their right mind paying for this.

The old series Doctors won't be around forever and the only new series one interested is Tennant, what else can they do but scrape the barrel? I mean Frazier imitating Troughton is passable but no real replacement. Then Gareth Roberts dies, that's a big hit for their B7 range. They have built a whole business model around scraping the barrel.
