The BBC has released a new trailer for the New Years Day episode – Resolution.  After the pretty much the entire Doctor Who community has already sussed out that the Daleks were returning on 1st January,

The original trailer features an overlay Nicholas Briggs quoting the standard classic line – EXTERMINATE.  It is great to hear his return.  We would have been saddened if he had been replaced.

This special has had a strange lack of promotion from the BBC and we haven’t seen a lot of excitement about the episode.  The absence of any information and the move from Christmas Day seems to have deadened the typical hype from the internet that is associated with a holiday event.  Certainly, our feeds have carried little chatter from others and we’ve been covering different Doctor Who related activities

Basically all there has been to promote the special has been few pictures and an embargoed press screening for 500 or so select press, former cast members and production crew at the BFI last week.  And even though the “secrets” have already been leaked, the attendees from the event are embargoed from promoting it.

One could say that a new Doctor can’t claim to be the Doctor until they face their greatest fear. Hopefully, this new video will begin to build the excitement for the first confrontation between the Thirteenth  Doctor and her greatest enemy – the Daleks.

Doctor Who Will Return…

Doctor Who returns with Resolution by Chris Chibnall on BBC One on New Year’s Day at 7pm, and at 8pm EST on BBC America. For further broadcast times in your region, check local listings.

Doctor Who stars Jodie Whittaker (The Doctor), Mandip Gill (Yasmin Khan), Bradley Walsh (Graham O’Brien) and Tosin Cole (Ryan Sinclair). Resolution guest stars Charlotte Ritchie (Lin), Nikesh Patel (Mitch) and Daniel Adegboyega (Aaron). The special is directed by Wayne Yip.

As the New Year begins, a terrifying evil is stirring from across the centuries of Earth’s history. As the Doctor, Ryan, Graham and Yaz return home, will they be able to overcome the threat to planet Earth?



  1. Why did you have to mention the Daleks in the title of the article? You’ve spoiled the surprise for me and possibly many others.

    • We mentioned in the title because there was no point not to include Daleks in the title. The BBC is running a trailer all through this week with the Daleks – EXTERMINATE voiced over the screen. That makes the information available everywhere. Just like the pictures, the synopsis and the Title. We could have not published anything but then someone else – probably your own telly – would have “spoiled” the information.

  2. It would be a memorable scene if at the first meeting when Jodie announced she was the Doctor to a Dalek, it is followed by “You are not the Doctor! Exterminate!” and a laser shot which causes a regeneration by episode’s end.
