Although a trailer has yet to be released for the show, the official synopsis has given fans an insight into what they can expect from the spin-off. It reads: "Incredible dangers are breaking through the walls of time and space, and with darkness coming, London is unprotected. With all the action, heart and adrenalin of the best YA fiction, this is Coal Hill School and Doctor Who like you’ve never seen it before."
