‘Doctor Who’ Special Trailer: DNA of ‘Most Dangerous Creature in the Universe’ Unearthed (Video)

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap.

BBC has good news and bad news for “Doctor Who” fans.

The good news: Jodie Whitaker’s first season as the Thirteenth Doctor will finish with a New Year’s Day special, which you can get a peek at in the new trailer released Sunday. The bad news: After that, there won’t be any more “Doctor Who” until 2020.

In the trailer for the special episode, “Resolution,” a very serious Doctor tells her companions that they have stumbled upon “the DNA of the most dangerous creature in the universe” that has been buried on Earth for over a millennium. Although the identity of the “creature” isn’t revealed, fans already have an idea of what it is: the Doctor’s most infamous arch-enemies, the Daleks.

Watch the trailer below.

This New Year’s Day, the most dangerous creature in the universe is stirring…

After that airs on Jan. 1, production will begin on Series 12 of “Doctor Who” in spring 2019. However, the series won’t be ready to broadcast until early 2020 because, according to the BBC, the next batch of episodes will require “uniquely complex filming requirements and a lengthy post-production period.”

Walsh is best known for playing London Police Sgt. Ronnie Brooks from 2009-14 on “Law & Order: UK,” as well as the role of Danny Baldwin on “Coronation Street” from 2004-06. He also appeared on the “Doctor Who” spinoff, “The Sarah Jane Adventures,” on the episode “Day of the Clown.”

Cole appeared in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” as Lieutenant Bastian, a Resistance pilot tasked with protecting Poe Dameron. He also appeared in 2011 on the British soap opera “Hollyoaks,” which Gill appeared on from 2012-15.

“The new Doctor is going to need new friends. We’re thrilled to welcome Mandip, Tosin and Bradley to the ‘Doctor Who’ family,” said Chris Chibnall, who will be taking over as “Doctor Who” showrunner next year. “They’re three of Britain’s brightest talents and we can’t wait to see them dive into brand new adventures with Jodie’s Doctor. Alongside them, we’re delighted that Sharon D. Clarke is also joining the show.”

“I remember watching William Hartnell as the first Doctor,” said Walsh. “Black and white made it very scary for a youngster like myself. I was petrified, but even though I’d watch most of it from behind the sofa through my fingers, I became a fan. I then queued up for ages to get into the Carlton picture house in Watford to watch the great Peter Cushing appear as the Doctor in a full-length feature film made in glorious color. Am I thrilled to be part of this whole ground breaking new dawn for the Doctor?? Oh yes!”

Whitaker will make her debut as the thirteenth Doctor at the end of this year’s “Doctor Who” Christmas special, which will be the final appearance for Peter Capaldi as the famous Time Lord. Whitaker’s first season will consist of ten episodes airing next fall, starting with a 60-minute season premiere.
