EXCLUSIVE AIRDATE | New Year’s Day DOCTOR WHO special episode guest stars AISLING BEA and ADJANI SALMON

- ADVERTISEMENT -

The Thirteenth Doctor faces an old nemesis when Doctor Who returns to screens in a New Year’s Day special episode, with an airdate in Australia confirmed.

One of the Doctor’s most feared nemeses will be back on our screens this New Year’s Day as Doctor Who returns for a special episode entitled ‘Eve of the Daleks’.

In Australia, TV Blackbox can exclusively reveal the Doctor Who New Year’s Day special will air at 7:30pm Sunday January 2nd, on ABC TV, ABC TV Plus and iview.

Following the explosive series finale of Doctor Who: Flux, The Thirteenth Doctor (Jodie Whittaker) and friends Yaz (Mandip Gill) and Dan (John Bishop), will kick-start 2022 with an action-packed spectacular episode set to air on BBC One on New Year’s Day. Eve of the Daleks will also feature guest stars Aisling Bea (This Way Up, Living With Yourself, Quiz), Adjani Salmon (Dreaming Whilst Black, Enterprice) and Pauline McLynn (Father Ted, Shameless).

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 as they find themselves joining forces with the Doctor, Dan and Yaz in a fight against the Daleks. The trailer for the special, which aired following the series thirteen finale, finds the cast trapped in ELF storage and stuck in a terrifying time loop with the Daleks. Will the gang manage to avoid extermination and escape the storage facility in time to see out New Year’s Day?

Chris Chibnall, Showrunner, said:

“We all need a little romance in our lives around New Year. Less so, Daleks. But Aisling Bea and Adjani Salmon’s characters will have to deal with both in a New Year’s Eve from hell. Together with Jodie Whittaker’s Doctor, it’ll hopefully prove the perfect New Year’s Day tonic.”

Doctor Who is a BBC Studios production for BBC One and a BBC America co-production. BBC Studios are the international distributors for Doctor Who.

Doctor Who: Eve of the Daleks New Year’s Day special screens Sunday, 7:30pm, January 2nd, on ABC TV, ABC TV Plus and iview.
