DOCTOR Who is back for a New Years special just weeks after finishing up for the 13th series.

The Daleks have returned and this is the third and final time we see Jodie Whittaker take on the role as the Doctor for a New Years special.

The Doctor Who: Eve of the Daleks airs BBC One and BBC iPlayer on 1st January 2022.

The episode will be available on BBC iPlayer live, and then it will be available to watch on catch-up.

The Doctor Who special serves as part of the BBC’s festive TV line-up for the Christmas season.

What is the Dr Who New Year Special about? 

The Doctor Who New Years special is called Doctor Who: Eve of the Daleks.

The BBC press release for the episode reads: “Sarah (Aisling Bea) owns and runs ELF storage, and Nick (Adjani Salmon) is a customer who visits his unit every year on New Year’s Eve. 

“This year, however, their night turns out to be a little different than planned…”
