Class 01-05: Brave-ish Heart (2)

A Guide to Classic Who references (and other references) in New Who including in Class episodes.

Class series 1, episode 5 (story 4 part 2) in which many of the issues from the previous episode are solved.

Warning: May contain Spoilers for

"Brave-ish Heart"

Viewing Order:


[OLD] - Things that first appeared in the classic Doctor Who series (or the film.)

For context, the following are also covered:
[1ST] - Things that appear for the first time in this episode.
[NEW] - Things that first appeared previously in the new Doctor Who series.
[CLASS] - Things that first appeared previously in the Class.

Ongoing References:

  • [1ST]  The creature in Miss Quill's head - An Arn, first mentioned in "For Tonight We Might Die" (Class series 1).

  • [CLASS]  The Governors - A group who sent a robot to monitor Miss Quill in "The Coach with the Dragon Tattoo" (Class series 1).  In "The Day of the Doctor" (50 Anniversary Special), before the new building was constructed and when it was Coal Hill Secondary School, not Coal Hill Academy, "I. Chesterton" was the Chairman of the Governors.  Ian Chesterton was a companion of the first Doctor and a science teacher at Coal Hill in 1963, but as noted, Ever Up Reach Inc replaced the board (probably changing it from being classed a High School to an Academy.)

  • [CLASS]  Shadow Kin - First appeared in "For Tonight We Might Die" (Class series 1).  The wiped out the all Rhodia and Quill on Rhodian except a Rhodia prince (Charlie Smith) and a Quill rebel leader (Miss Quill).

  • CLASS]  April's Heart - As noted in the clips from previous episodes, April has shared her heart with the king of the Shadow Kin since "For Tonight We Might Die" (Class series 1).

  • [CLASS]  The Cabinet of Souls - A relic from Rhodia which first appeared in "For Tonight We Might Die" (Class series 1).  In that episode the Shadow Kin wanted to steal it because it can be used as a weapon, but Charlie claimed that it didn't work.

  • [CLASS]  Cracks in Time/Space - First appeared in "For Tonight We Might Die" (Class Series 1).  The Doctor was only able to partially seal it and warning it would attract weirdness.  Rifts have previously appeared in E-Space in "The Warrior's Gate" (Doctor Who Season 18), in Cardiff ("The Unquiet Deadand "Boomtown" (Doctor Who Series 1)"Utopia" (Doctor Who Series 3), most of Torchwood Series 1 & Series 2) and Amy Pond's bedroom and all of space ("The Eleventh Hour" (Doctor Who Series 5)).

From the Previous Episode:

  • [CLASS]  The Underneath - Appeared previously in "Co-Owners of a Lonely Heart." (Class Season 1).  It is, obviously, the home of the Shadow Kin (who you can find out more about above.)

  • [1ST]  Bloodsucking alien petals - Second appearance of these creatures which are probably far more dangerous than they look, obviously having appeared in "Co-Owners of a Lonely Heart." (Class Season 1).

From this Episode:

  • [OLD]  Ever Upward Reach Ltd - First mention of this organisation, although its name appears on the Coal Hill Academy sign since "The Coach with the Dragon Tattoo" (Class series 1).
