It’s happy Who Year once again as Doctor Who returns on New Year’s Day with Dalek-filled special

The festive special of Doctor Who, Revolution of the Daleks, to air on New Year's Day with television and film royalty Dame Harriet Walter guest starring and Chris Noth reprising his role as Jack Robertson.

The Thirteenth Doctor and 'the fam' will kick-off 2021 with an action-packed spectacular episode entitled Revolution of the Daleks set to air on BBC One on New Year's Day.

The festive special episode will see a host of exciting guest artists including previously announced John Barrowman MBE who will be reprising his role as Captain Jack Harkness alongside Chris Noth who will be back as the disgraced Jack Robertson. Chris Noth previously appeared in the series 11 episode Arachnids in the UK and it's safe to say the Doctor and all those involved were less than impressed by his questionable actions. However viewers will have to wait and see just what brings him back this time…

Star of the stage and screen Dame Harriet Walter will also be making her Doctor Who debut for the festive special alongside television star Nathan Stewart-Jarrett who has recently appeared in The Trial of Christine Keeler.

Viewers last saw the Thirteenth Doctor at the end of series 12 where her fate was left hanging in the balance as she was locked away in a high-security alien prison with no hope of escape. In the upcoming festive special, Yaz, Ryan and Graham are far away on Earth and having to carry on with their lives without her. However they soon discover a disturbing plan forming. A plan which involves a Dalek. How can you fight a Dalek without the Doctor? Even with Captain Jack's help, the gang are set to face one of their biggest and most frightening challenges yet…

Chris Chibnall, Executive Producer, said: "We've crammed this year's Doctor Who festive special with an explosion of extraordinary acting talent. Where else would you get British acting royalty, a globally renowned US screen star, an (inter)national treasure of stage and screen and one of Britain's hottest young actors - just in the guest cast! Put those together with Jodie Whittaker, Bradley Walsh, Mandip Gill and Tosin Cole (and Daleks! Did I mention Daleks!) - and you get a cast to be exterminated for. And things will explode. Promise."

Revolution of the Daleks will air on New Year's Day on BBC One. Doctor Who is a BBC Studios Production.
