The Doctor Who spin-off Class is finally here and it's everything the Whovians have been waiting for.

The show, which sees teenagers protect London from monsters in the same universe as the Doctor, arrived on BBC Three to a rapturous reception.

Some fans even, dare we say it, prefer it to Doctor Who.

But others were disappointed it was only available on the digital channel.

The first two episodes of Class are available to stream and download on BBC Three now.
