Following the premiere of the first two episodes of Class on BBC Three, the BBC has released the synopsis for the fourth episode of the Doctor Who spin-off.
There are minor spoilers, so if you’re averse to them, avoid this article, at least until you’ve seen the show’s premise being set up!
While the third episode, Nightvisiting, seems to focus on Vivian Oparah’s Tanya, the fourth – titled Co-Owner Of A Lonely Heart – appears to centre around Sophie Hopkins’ character, April:
When April’s estranged father makes a startling appearance she confronts him with Shadow Kin force, manifesting traits of the Shadow Kin leader.
Frightened by this extraordinary new-found power, April seeks comfort in Ram, and vows to reclaim her heart as her own.
Meanwhile, something strange is happening to the others – London is slowly being infested with unusual, sinister flower petals.
The Corakinus (in case you’ve not kept up) is the Pyrovile-esque creature from For Tonight We Might Die.
