We love StoriesBig Finish produce great full-cast audio drama for CD and download, featuring many popular television fantasy series.
We may be living in lockdown but it’s back to school for some. Two thrilling new volumes of Class: The Audio Adventures are out now!
Although the 2016 TV series, originally created by Patrick Ness for BBC Three, ran for just eight episodes, Big Finish’s fantastic Class audio spin-off is keeping the staff and classmates of Coal Hill Academy busy with another six adventures, released today.
Each volume contains three new stories each as follows.
And Dervla Kirwan joins the cast as Miss Quill, a part previously portrayed by Katherine Kelly. Kirwan will already be familiar to Doctor Who fans, as she appeared in the 2008 Christmas special, The Next Doctor, playing the ruthless Miss Hartigan.
Actor Dervla Kirwan, said: “I'm a bit of a sci-fi geek. I just love doing jobs like this because it's the imagination of the writing that really excites me. So to get to play this incredible, uncompromising super-bitch is very liberating, fun and spontaneous.
“As a people-pleaser, it's really lovely to play someone who is completely not that. Someone who is so literally unapologetic about who they are - or if they make people uncomfortable - that's so liberating. The sheer audacity of the woman! It was deeply empowering to play a woman who really didn't care.”
