“The main character is someone brand-new”
“There’s lots and lots and lots of brand new.
“Because that’s what I want to see. I want to see somebody come up with something new. Lots and lots of brand new.”
On Peter Capaldi's appearance:
“I can neither yet confirm nor deny,”
“But I’m a big Peter Capaldi fan, let’s put it that way.”
"It’s funny – I’m not gonna answer that question. I’ve already started ignoring the sort of baiting, trolling tweets of ‘We’ve heard this!’ and ‘my sources say!’
“And I just laugh, I mean like Wow, because some of the stuff I’ve seen is so wildly wrong. I think ‘Oh, this could be a fun year.’”On writing for the series:
“The way I write books, is….I know the last line of the book, and I already know the last line in the first season of Class”
“And I know there are things on the way that I’ve already written, or I can’t wait to write. So I’ve got all the episodes plotted out. I’ve got many many things written – and it’s really exciting!"
“I wish I could tell you details, but it’s too early for details.”
