While Charlie (Greg Austin), April (Sophie Hopkins), Ram (Fady Elsayed), Tanya (Vivian Oparah), and Matteusz (Jordan Renzo) faced the threat of ever-lasting imprisonment in Detained, Miss Quill (Katherine Kelly) was… Well, actually, we don’t know. What did she get up to after giving the class detention?
We are, of course, talking about the Doctor Who spin-off, Class – the previous episode, which became available yesterday on BBC Three, leaving us with quite a cliffhanger, and a sizeable number of questions. Some of those will be cleared up in the next episode, The Metaphysical Engine, Or What Quill Did. Here’s the official synopsis:
With the gang trapped in detention and out of the way, Miss Quill accepts Dorothea’s astonishing offer: to help remove the Arn from her head, and to reclaim her freedom.
Alongside Ballon, an imprisoned shape-shifter, Miss Quill travels in a metaphysical engine and is taken to impossible, extraordinary and dangerous worlds, collecting materials in preparation for her life-changing procedure.
After an emotional encounter with her surgeon and a nearly-fatal operation, Miss Quill must find a way to return to Earth: transformed and ready for war.
So Pooky Quesnel is back, working on behalf of the mysterious Governors – but how can they give Quill this chance to get get own life back? And what does this mean for Charlie and his possibly-friends?
Written by Patrick Ness, and directed by Wayne Che Yip, The Metaphysical Engine, Or What Quill Did airs on BBC Three on Saturday 26th November from 10am.
