doctor who new year's day special

Synopsis and broadcast time revealed for New Year’s Day special

As you may have heard, we’re getting a New Year’s Day special this year instead of a Christmas special, and the BBC have released some details to tease us, including a new image of the Doctor inspecting the glass cube.
The as yet untitled New Year’s Day special will air on Tuesday 1st January at 7.00pm on BBC One. The official synopsis for the episode reads as follows:

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

As the Doctor, Ryan, Graham and Yaz return home, will they be able to overcome the threat to planet Earth?

The episode is written by Chris Chibnall and directed by Wayne Yip, featuring the Thirteenth Doctor, Graham, Yaz and Ryan.
