Watch Class Writer Patrick Ness Talk Teens And, Duh, Monsters

Are you excited for Saturday’s two-hour, two-episode premiere of Doctor Who spinoff series Class? Why, of course you are! To help get you in the mood, here’s a quickie interview with with the show’s writer and executive producer, Patrick Ness. And when we say writer, we don’t mean one or two measly instalments. Ness wrote all eight eps of Class’ first seasons. That’s nothing to sneeze at.

Ness covers quite a bit of ground for just a 90-second interview, like how he faithfully captured the spirit of the show’s teens (despite knowing nothing about the Canadian educational system) and how he created complex villains with a unique point of view. Check out the clip below:
