    Read in DWM’s The Official Guide To The 2013 Series, that writer Steve Thompson in his original idea for Journey To The Centre of the TARDIS had the TARDIS crashed into a school trip in space and it would then see teenage schoolkids running around the TARDIS causing havoc.
    This idea however was vetoed by showrunner Steven Moffat.

    Somewhat curiously just over a year after Journey To The Centre of the TARDIS, the 2014 season included In The Forest of the Night by Frank Cottrell Boyce and that had the Doctor taking the Coal Hill kids on a trip in the TARDIS.
    It is plausible to speculate that Moffat’s relatively recent memory of Thompson’s idea of schoolkids in the TARDIS may have suggested that very idea to Cottrell-Boyce to incorporate into his said episode. <b></b><i></i><u></u>
