What Class doesn't have yet is its very own reason to exist. It generally riffs on the kinds of plots and premises that have been Doctor Who's stock in trade for decades, but on Class, those storylines feel a bit threadbare and padded.
Class' main attraction is its cast. The young actors are all very talented and have no trouble handling the show's heavier material. In fact, I found myself wishing there had been more than just eight episodes.
The performances are solid, the actors - especially the younger set - are sympathetic and appealing. Ness has made an effort to make them seem like real high school kids, even having a gay couple sleep together.
