Jodie Whittaker’s first season as the Doctor wrapped up Sunday night with the Season 11 finale “The Battle of Ranskoor Av Kolos,” which ended with a brief tease of the New Year’s Day special “Resolution.”
As the New Year begins, a terrifying evil is stirring from across the centuries of Earth’s history. Will the Doctor (Jodie Whittaker), Ryan (Tosin Cole), Graham (Bradley Walsh) and Yaz (Mandip Gill) be able to overcome this threat to Planet Earth?
Now, also, we know that rumors are true that there will be no new episode until early 2020 — making “Resolution” the only new Doctor Who we’ll see on TV in 2019.
Whittaker is confirmed to return for 2020’s Series 12, along with co-stars Walsh, Gill and Cole and showrunner Chris Chibnall.
“Resolution” will premiere at 8 p.m./7 p.m. Central time on Jan. 1 on BBC America.
