Warning: The post ahead contains spoilers for the upcoming New Year’s Day ‘Doctor Who’ special. Read on at your own risk!
Jodie Whittaker’s season of ‘Doctor Who’ has featured new monsters and threats that the Time Lord has never before encountered. Notably missing are the constant, recurring characters like the Cybermen and the Weeping Angels. Oh, and of course, the Daleks.
The teasers for the New Year’s Day episode of ‘Doctor Who’ has been re-released, but this time, the clip concludes with a very familiar sound, indeed. Am ominous, mechanical voice saying, “Exterminate!” This seems to be a confirmation that The Doctor and her friends will face off against the Daleks, who have been plaguing The Doctor since 1963.
Rumors have been flying that the New Year’s Day episode would include at least one of the classic villains from the sci-fi show. When Mandip Gill, who plays Yaz on the show, was asked about the possibility, she refused to let anything slip. Gill said:
“Well, like you say, they’re just rumors, aren’t they? We’ve managed to get this far keeping everything a secret. Now, how would we let that slip?”
The ‘Doctor Who’ New Year’s Day Special, ‘Resolution,’ airs on BBC American on January 1. Check out the teaser with the major reveal below!
