Although Doctor Who season 13 – subtitled Doctor Who: Flux – has a few more episodes in its history, we now know that we won’t have to wait very long to see the Thirteenth Doctor again once he’s finished. While this season is star Jodie Whittaker’s last “full” season in the TARDIS, she still signed on for a trio of specials that are expected to unfold at various times over the next year, until her regeneration in the TARDIS. during a still unforeseen installment that should be released. next fall as part of the BBC’s centenary programming. But, before that happens, we’ll be ringing in the New Year once again with Thirteen.

During his tenure as showrunner, Chris Chibnall deliberately avoided the annual Christmas special episode, a Doctor Who tradition since the show’s return in 2005. Instead, it instituted a regular New Years episode, one that feels a lot more like a regular episode with perhaps a slightly longer runtime and less like. a good dose of holiday cheer. This is still the case for the 2022 kickoff, with the second and third of Whittaker’s final specials airing later in the year.

While there is still very little plot information for the upcoming New Year’s Eve “festive special”, we do know that it will feature several notable guest stars, including This path is Aisling Bea, Dreaming while the blacks Salmon Adjani, and Father Ted’s Pauline McLynn.

According to the official press description, Beal will play Sarah, who owns a storage facility, and Salmon will play Nick, who is a regular customer.

Sarah (Aisling Bea) owns and manages ELF storage, and Nick (Adjani Salmon) is a customer who visits her unit every New Years Eve. This year, however, their evening turns out to be a little different than expected. …

The festive episode is the first of three Doctor Who Specials to air in 2022. The second special to air in the spring and Jodie’s final feature special (where the Thirteenth Doctor will regenerate) will air in fall 2022 as part of the celebrations of the centenary of the BBC. .

Current companions Mandip Gil and John Bishop (who play Yasmin Khan and Dan Lewis respectively). will also both be back for the holiday season. (Huzzah for the two who apparently survived the Flux, I guess?)

BBC America shared a new promotional image announcing the date of the special (01.01.22, surprise!) which shows us a TARDIS which promises to be in bad shape.

Those of you who have watched Doctor Who: Flux are already aware that everyone’s favorite blue police box has struggled in the last few episodes – clearing its doors, manifesting black mud, and generally behaving like something is wrong at all. And the really big cracks all over the TARDIS in this image certainly make it look like this particular issue isn’t going to be something that’s fixed by the end of the season.

What is happening? It is likely that we will have to wait for the conclusion of Doctor Who: Flux to enter the configuration of the next vacation period. But it’s certainly a relief to know that we won’t have to be without the Doctor for very long.

Doctor Who: Flux is currently airing Sunday evenings on BBC America.
