Here’s the details of the Doctor Who New Year’s Day special…

November 16th, 2018 by Marc Comments

As we reported last week, it looks like Doctor Who, for the first time in 13 years, will not be appearing on Christmas Day – which is sad as the Christmas episode has become a really big part of our family Christmas tradition – but instead will be appearing on New Year’s Day instead.

Here’s the details: The episode will see the Doctor and her companions Ryan (Tosin Cole), Graham (Bradley Walsh) and Yaz (Mandip Gill), face a terrifying evil from across the centuries of Earth’s history. As the four return home, they have to try to overcome the threat to the planet.


Well, at least we know all the companions survive Jodie Whittaker’s first season.

With Doctor Who now on Sunday nights instead of Saturday, the Christmas Day slot gone and no return until 2020, we can’t help but feel the series may have a rough time ahead.

What do you guys think?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
