BBC America’s Class is going to have a very special guest when the show kicks off — and it’s just what the Doctor ordered.

As seen in a special teaser shown at New York Comic Con, below, the Time Lord (played by Peter Capaldi) has a warning for the students of Coal Hill School.

“I can travel through space and I can travel through time, but I can’t always be there when you need me,” says the Doctor, gazing straight into the camera. “But you can’t look away from the darkness ahead. For Time has looked at your faces… and Time never forgets.”

Class will premiere on BBC America in 2017.
