Airdate: Doctor Who: Resolution

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

The Doctor Who New Year’s special will be available first on iview next Wednesday ahead of its primetime broadcast.

With 2018 marking a brand-new era for Doctor Who it is only right that 2019 kicks off in
spectacular style. So, to mark the occasion, the TARIDS will travel though the time vortex
from its traditional Boxing timeslot and will land in style on 2nd January with the Doctor Who
festive special available on ABC iview directly after the UK’s broadcast, then that evening at
7.30pm on ABC.

As the New Year begins, a terrifying evil is stirring from across the centuries of Earth’s history.

As the Doctor (Jodie Whittaker), Ryan (Tosin Cole), Graham (Bradley Walsh) and Yaz (Mandip Gill) return home, will they be able to overcome the threat to planet Earth?

Production details: Written by Chris Chibnall and directed by Wayne Yip. A BBC Production.

7:30pm Wednesday January 2 on ABC.


  1. One of the interesting comments I saw on YouTube is that the break isn’t that long. This recently concluded season occurred the latest in the year since 2005. As the production team are starting production on the new season after New Year’s it’s not unreasonable to assume that production will be completed by the end of the year. As it would be unexpected to start the new season in late November/early December (the season would cross the turn of the year) a January start would be more reasonable. So, I’m tipping a January/February 2020 start.

  2. With no series in 2019 I hope they spend that time wisely and give Jodie Whittaker something to get her teeth into. After the initial interest in the Doctor finally being a woman wore off the series was quite ho-hum.

    • Yes, it is curious that the new female Dr Who is given a hiatus when really she should continue to gain hearts and minds after such a creative gamble by the BBC, especially with those rusted on Whovian’s who if they are anything like Star Trek fans will take some convincing about the merit of waiting so long for the next season.
