[ SPOILERS! This episode discusses the new Doctor Who spin-off series, Class. ]
We all deal with grief in very different, very personal ways. Whether or not we ever truly come to terms with the loss of a loved one is unpredictable at best, and hinges upon any number of factors, both in and out of our control. Consider the impact, then, of a malicious entity that feeds upon that uncertainty and emotional upheaval — attempting to manipulate us at one of our greatest points of vulnerability. Now, consider grappling with that threat in the middle of the maelstrom that is the life of a teenager.
This week, Haley and Keir cut through the dangerous tendrils that weave through the third episode of Class, “Nightvisiting”. Our ill-fated students contend with a danger that extends much further than the halls of Coal Hill, as well as issues of family rejection, estrangement, and isolation. This is turning out to be a heck of a feel-good show, eh?
