BBC Books to publish three novels to tie in with Class, the new Doctor Who spin-off series created by Patrick Ness

BBC Books Senior Editorial Director Albert DePetrillo has bought World rights to three spin-off novels that tie into the first series of Class, a show created and written by award-winning and bestselling YA author Patrick Ness.

Airing this October on BBC3, this new Doctor Who spin-off show is set at Coal Hill School, which has a special significance for Doctor Who fans: it’s not only the primary school where the Doctor’s most recent companion, Clara Oswald, taught but it featured in the very first Doctor Who episode in 1963. Class centres on the adventures of an all-new group of students at Coal Hill, and will have the action, heart and adrenaline of the very best YA fiction – dangers breaking through the walls of time and space, a darkness coming to a London unprotected, a new group of heroes to root for, and new villains to hide from behind the sofa.


BBC Books will publish three novels – Joyride by Guy Adams, The Stone House by A.K. Benedict and What She Does Next Will Astound You by James Goss – that follow Patrick’s vision for the series and provide a thrilling extension of this new fictional universe.

Albert DePetrillo says “Patrick Ness is simply one of the finest writers working today – in any genre – and his new television series has all the hallmarks of his dazzling fiction. Class is a hugely exciting new brand for the BBC list, and we’re delighted to be working with Patrick and the production team at BBC Wales on these official tie-ins.”
