Doctor Who fans are in for a real treat this evening, with bronze Daleks set to make a reappearance in the New Year’s special Revolution of the Daleks.
New pictures show Captain Jack (John Barrowman) with the Doctor’s oldest enemy, preparing for their latest adventure.
It’s been a while since Doctor Who fans last got a glimpse of the bronze version of the fearsome villains on the show.
The last time they made an appearance on our screens was back in 2017, during Christmas special Twice Upon a Time – the episode which saw Jodie Whittaker revealed as the 13th doctor.
The news comes after Nick Briggs, the voice actor behind the Daleks, told Metro.co.uk that the Doctor Who festive special is set to see the Daleks change in an interesting way – and it could prove disastrous for our heroes.
The Daleks are set to play a key role in the new special, which sees the Doctor’s friends band together to fight the Daleks, with the Time Lord locked up in prison.
The official synopsis for the episode reads: ‘The upcoming festive special will see the return of one of the Doctor’s biggest and most feared enemies – the Daleks. The Doctor is locked away in a high-security alien prison. Isolated, alone, with no hope of escape.
‘Far away, on Earth, her best friends, Yaz, Ryan and Graham have to pick up their lives without her. But it’s not easy. Old habits die hard. Especially when they discover a disturbing plan forming. A plan which involves a Dalek. How can you fight a Dalek, without the Doctor?’
The special, titled Revolution of the Daleks, also marks the final adventure for some of the show’s most popular characters.
Bradley Walsh and Tosin Cole are saying goodbye to the series with the episode, bringing an end to two years in the role of Graham O’Brien and Ryan Sinclair.
The biggest news, though, is that John Barrowman is reprising his role as the beloved Captain Jack Harkness, recently revealing he’s ‘thrilled’ to return to the sci-fi series.
Doctor Who special Revolution of the Daleks airs at 6.45pm on BBC One this evening.
