It's been confirmed as well that the Christmas special will air on New Year's.


Taking out the season finale, it's interesting that the episodes this year have fit a pattern. 

Episodes 1-3: Present Day, Future (in space), Historical.

Episodes 4-6: Present Day, Future (in space), Historical.

Episodes 7-9: Future (in space), Historical, Present Day (mixed up but still almost the same pattern).

Thanks @benteen, the last two episodes sound pretty intriguing

Details on the New Year's special and marathons:



The first female Time Lord is starting a new holiday tradition. BBC America announced late Wednesday that it’s eschewing Doctor Who‘s customary Christmas Day special in favor of one airing on New Year’s Day.

The standalone hour finds Jodie Whittaker’s Doctor facing “a terrifying alien threat,” per showrunner Chris Chibnall, who penned the seasonal outing.

Adds Courtney Thomasma, executive director of BBC America: “Jodie Whittaker and the dynamic new team have propelled Doctor Who to become TV’s fastest growing scripted series of the year. 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.”


From Deadline: https://deadline.com/2018/11/doctor-who-new-years-day-special-bbc-america-christmas-special-jodie-whittaker-1202502325/


The all-new episode is written by Chris Chibnall and directed by Wayne Yip (Preacher, Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency). 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?

Is the New Year's special supposed to be longer than the usual episode length? It's set for an hour timeslot for BBC's transmission, but it appears BBC America is setting it for a 90 minute timeslot, similar to the Season 11 premiere, which suggests it will be longer than usual (with a bunch of added commercials of course)

There was at least one VIP/press screening of the New Year’s special today or yesterday, so spoilers are starting to come out. The last video from the above Instagram has Chibnall talking about a Dalek in the special

A radio promo for the New Year special that someone captured I guess or the BBC put up. There appears to be a lot more dialogue than the TV promo
