Doctor Who spin-off Class has 'faint hope' of series 2

The creator of "Doctor Who" spin-off show "Class" believes a second series is a "faint hope".

Patrick Ness took to Twitter on Sunday (04.06.17) to announce he would be stepping down from the BBC Three online drama after he was left "baffled" by the decision to schedule the programme on BBC One, and has said he doesn't believe there will be another series because the teams should already be filming.

In a lengthy post on the micro-blogging site, Patrick said: "I decided awhile back that, with unbelievable regret, I won't be writing any more Class, even if a season 2 moves ahead.

"It has been the MOST amazing experience. I loved it, and I am so proud of the show and what we made. My heart just bursts with happy.

"But we should be filming right now. With the new cycles of Who, we'd pretty much need to be to be on the air before even 2019. But we're not

Doctor Who Christmas special to be 'dark and sinister'

"@bbcthree @BBCAMERICA I remain baffled by the sched decisions of BBC1, which were odd for a critically-acclaimed show. But again, I'm so grateful for the chance

"@bbcthree @BBCAMERICA AND THANK *YOU*!!! You guys have been AMAZING! You know how harrowing it is to write in the Whoniverse? But the welcome has been brilliant!

"If I'm honest, a season 2 has been a faint hope, but it's a fact that BBC America LOVES the show, so who know? If so, I wish them wings!

"I'm super-super sad and i fought hard to be making it right now, trust me! I'm a feisty little mofo.

"(And if I HAD got a 2nd season: weeping angel civil war & PLANET, Quill has a dangerous son, Charlie & Matteusz shirtless wood chopping...)

"So, yeah, I'm really sad, saddest in my whole career, but it's the right choice. Much, much, much love. (sic)"

Meanwhile, "Doctor Who" show runner Steven Moffat recently said he'd "love" to see a second series of the programme, despite rumours it had been axed by the broadcaster.

He said: "We don't know right now - we would love to get more "Class" made. We're in a different world now, for how television works, especially when our channel is basically online. Wait and see what's going to happen.

"Now the Weeping Angels cannot be allowed to win can they?"
