Doctor Who: Eve of the Daleks Trailer Exterminates the New Year

“Eve” will be the first of a trilogy of specials meant to close out Whitaker and Chibnall’s time on the series. The second special is meant to release not terribly long after the first one, and then the final special will be much later in the year. From there, Chibnall will be replaced by returning showrunner Russell T. Davies, and the new Doctor is currently being kept a secret. In a brief statement on the Doctor Who website, showrunner Chris Chibnall teased the time traveling madness to come in the holiday special:

“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: Eve of the Daleks will air on BBC on January 1.
