Patrick Ness is to pen a new series for the BBC. Aimed at Doctor Who fans, it will capitalise on the YA growth market particularly targeting a teenage audience. The BBC is hoping it will attract fans of The Hunger Games.

Set in contemporary London in the fictional Coal Hill school, a school that made an appearance in the very first Doctor Who in 1936. It was again used in the 1988 25th anniversary show and again in the 50th anniversary special.

The eight part series called Class will go to air next year. Ness said , "Im astounded and thrilled to be entering the Doctor Who universe, which is as vast as time and space itself."

Ness is the author of the popular Chaos Walking Trilogy and A Monster Calls for which he wrote the screenplay. The film, starring Sigourney Weaver and Liam Neeson, will be released next year. His latest book, The Rest Of Us Just Live Here, has just been released
