“Doctor Who” kicks off 2021 with a New Years special called “Revolution of the Daleks”.
The trailer highlights the large number of guest stars who appear on the special, including John Barrowman, who will reprise his role as Captain Jack Harkness; Chris Noth as Jack Robertson, Dame Harriet Walker and Nathan Stewart-Jarrett. And, of course, there are plenty of Daleks, looking to “Exterminate” the “Doctor Who” crew.
At the end of Season 12, the Thirteenth Doctor – played by Jodie Whittaker – was locked in a high-security alien prison. Yaz, Ryan and Graham moved on with their lives, until they realized that a Dalek storm was brewing. But, how do you fight Daleks without the Doctor? Although they have the help of Captain Jack, the special vacation will see the crew embark on one of their most difficult adventures to date.
“We have packed this year’s Doctor Who special with an explosion of extraordinary acting talent,” “Doctor Who” executive producer Chris Chibnall said in a statement. “Where else would you find British royalty, a world famous American movie star, (inter) national stage and screen treasure and one of Britain’s hottest young actors – just in the cast guest! Put them on with Jodie Whittaker, Bradley Walsh, Mandip Gill and Tosin Cole (and Daleks! Did I mention Daleks!) – and you get a cast that you must be exterminated for. And things will explode. To promise. ”
“Revolution of the Daleks” will air Jan. 1 at 8 p.m. ET / PT on BBC America. Watch the full trailer below.
