Doctor Who’s 2022 New Year special airs tonight – here’s who’s on the cast!
Jodie Whittaker will kick-start the new year as The Thirteenth Doctor with an action-packed spectacular on BBC One.
Titled ‘Eve of the Daleks’, a teaser shares: “Sarah owns and runs ELF storage, and Nick 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…”
The New Year’s special will air on Saturday, 1 January on BBC One at 7PM.

Meanwhile, Nicholas Briggs is the voice of the Daleks.
A full synopsis of the hour-long episode reveals: “New Year’s Eve. Sarah is working – again. Nick is her only customer – again. Same old same old. Except this year, their countdown to midnight will be the strangest and deadliest they’ve ever known.
“Why is an Executioner Dalek targeting these two people, in this place, on this night? Why are they having to live through the same moments again?
“Can the Doctor, Yaz and Dan save them and survive into the New Year?”
The festive episode will be the first of three Doctor Who Specials airing in 2022.
The second Special airs in Spring and Jodie’s final feature-length Special (in where the Thirteenth Doctor will regenerate), will air in autumn 2022 as part of the BBC’s Centenary celebrations.
As yet a new Doctor has yet to be announced.
Meanwhile the recent thirteenth series of Doctor Who, titled Flux, recently wrapped up its six-episode run on BBC One.
