I think I’ve possibly been had: by a tabloid.
It seems the Daily Mirror managed to put out a story that the BBC had cancelled Dr Who spin-off, Class.
One that convinced one or two people on Twitter … and got me going for a bit … !
I here to start sounding like Donald Trump …
But that’s sounding a little bit like Fake News …
The other side of the story?
Is that the series’ future? Is still in the air.
No announcement has been made about the show’s future.
I’m aware the BBC have a certain amount of concern about the viewing figures.
Not helped, I think, but the fact it delayed airing the show on BBC 2 until some time after the show’s online premiere. Internationally, the show’s been delayed: and also not helped by the fact the BBC couldn’t get iPlayer International off the ground.
I know the show’s had a rocky start.
But I also think the BBC should learn from this initial rough patch.
And, if they commission a second series — something I know I and others would like to see — they promote it fair more heavily.
