Whittaker's first full episode attracted a record audience for a new Doctor - 10.9 million viewers - last month.

"We're thrilled to be starting the New Year with a bang on BBC One", said Chibnall, who promised audiences "an action-packed, hour-long special adventure for all the family".

America is going to ring in 2019 with Doctor Who.

According to the BBC, the seasonal instalment will involve "a terrifying evil. from across the centuries of Earth's history". After that, it will be a celebratory marathon of all the Doctors tarting with Peter Capaldi, followed by Christopher Eccleston, David Tennant, and Matt Smith, leading straight into the New Year's special on January 1.


In previous years, the Christmas Day outing has featured an array of top talent as guest characters, from Kylie Minogue to Sir Michael Gambon. "We can't think of a better holiday gift to the fans than a week-long marathon of Doctor Who Christmas specials and fan-favorite episodes leading into 2019 with new traditions and our first-ever "Who Year's Day" special".

Jodie's debut series as the Doctor is attracting the show's highest average TV audience for almost 10 years.

The penultimate scenes will see Jodie Whittaker's The Doctor, Ryan, Yaz and Graham take on a brand new monster on the edge of a Norwegian ford before facing the unknown of the Ux.
