Class continues next Saturday with its third episode, Nightvisiting. As darkness falls, there are some unexpected arrivals in the city – but can they be trusted?

In a way, Episode 3 continues in much the same vein as Episode 2. Last week saw Ram in the spotlight, and this chapter hones in another of our primary cast: Tanya. During the course of these 45 minutes, we receive a much greater insight into Vivian Oparah’s character. Her childhood and her backstory come to the forefront, but can she keep the past where it belongs?

Of course, surprise surprise, there’s also a new monster on the scene – or is there? Without warning, the citizens of London wake up to the sight of lost loved ones in the middle of the night. Emotions run high in this reunion of life and death: there’s a promise of good will and freedom, but is everything as it seems?

Elsewhere, the rest of our heroes find themselves caught up in the crisis. Be warned though: this episode isn’t as high octane as the previous two. While the debut double-bill was explosive and frenetic, this is a much slower and quiet affair. There’s a lot less focus on action and a much greater emphasis on character development. It’s a shift you’ll either love or loathe, so take note to adjust your expectations accordingly.

With that in mind, be sure to tune in to see Class continue its darker twist on Doctor Who in a whole new way. Just be careful of things that go knock in the night…

Episode 3, Nightvisiting, will be available on BBC Three from 10am on Saturday 29th October. Class is written by Patrick Ness and directed by Ed Bazalgette.

Synopsis

London is infiltrated by an eerie alien with the ability to morph into the shape of lost loved ones.

Tanya has an unexpected visitor come to her window in the dead of night – and she’s not the only one, as Ram and Miss Quill face their own startling visitors.

Confronted with these emotional encounters, the team must overcome the persuasion of this strange new threat, and battle through the streets to stop Tanya from being lost forever.
