Eccentric detective, Dirk Gently (Samuel Barnett), wholly believes they're destined to untangle the peculiar events surrounding the mystery together, whether Todd likes it or not! A collection of wild and dangerous characters' further infiltrate and complicate their world, each episode landing them a few random steps closer to uncovering the truth. The world premiere screening will be followed by a Q&A with stars Samuel Barnett (Penny Dreadful), Hannah Marks (The Amazing Spiderman), Jade Eshete (Dead Beat), Mpho Koaho (Falling Skies) and Fiona Dourif (Manhattan), writer and executive producer Max Landis (Chronicle, American Ultra) and showrunner Robert Cooper (Stargate Atlantis, Stargate Universe).

Time travelling over the years has caused the very walls of space and time to become thin. There's something pressing in on the other side, something waiting for its chance to kill everyone and everything, to bring us all into Shadow. Panel includes stars Greg Austin, Fady Elsayed, Sophie Hopkins and Vivian Oparah along with Patrick Ness and Brian Minchin. Class is a BBC Studios Wales production, co-produced with BBC AMERICA and BBC Worldwide. Class will premiere alongside Doctor Who in Spring 2017 on BBC AMERICA.
