Firstly, we got a date for when the first two episodes will be released in the UK – Saturday October 22 – but was also got confirmation that Twelfth Doctor Peter Capaldi will be appearing in the series’ opener.

The details were revealed by the cast on a live Facebook stream to promote the new series.

The exact date the show will air on BBC America has yet to be confirmed, but in recent years the cable channel has broadcast new episodes of “Doctor Who” as close to their UK air-date as possible.

Set at the Coal Hill Academy (formerly Coal Hill School), a recurring location in the long-running BBC drama, “Class” seeks to provide a more Young Adult-oriented take on the “Doctor Who” universe.

The show stars actors Greg Austin, Sophie Hopkins, Fady Essayed and Vivian Oparah as Charlie, April, Ram and Tanya, respectively, and Katherine Kelly as physics teacher Miss Quill.
