A 30 second trailer for the New Year’s Day episode of Doctor Who has been released, hinting at high stakes for the Doctor and her friends, who are set to come face to face with ‘the most dangerous creature in the universe’ in Resolution on New Year’s Day.



The synopsis for the episode confirms it will be set in the New Year and will feature a ‘terrifying evil’:

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?

The special is written by Chris Chibnall and directed by Wayne Yip, who previously directed two episodes of Doctor Who starring Peter Capaldi as the Twelfth Doctor (2017’s Lie of the Land and Empress of Mars) and two episodes of the 2016 Doctor Who spin-off, Class (Detained and The Metaphysical Engine, or What Quill Did). The episode will star Jodie Whittaker as the Doctor, Tosin Cole as Ryan, Bradley Walsh as Graham and Mandip Gill as Yaz.
