Doctor Who has been airing on BBC One and the latest season, known as Flux, told one continuous story. The season has since come to an end but the Doctor (played by Jodie Whittaker) and her companions will be back on screens shortly. Express.co.uk has all you need to know about when the next episode of Doctor Who airs.

When is Doctor Who back on BBC One?

The Doctor Who Flux finale aired on November 5 and it received mixed reviews from viewers.

For the first time in years, the series decided to tell one long story over each of the episodes, instead of focussing on a new story each week.

The finale saw the return of Kate Stewart (Jemma Redgrave), the Chief Scientific Officer of the Unified Intelligence Taskforce.

Fans also said an emotional goodbye to Professor Eustacius Jericho (Kevin McNally) as he was absorbed into the Flux.

At the end of the episode, a teaser for the festive special was shown.

The first of three 2022 specials will air on BBC One on January 1 and it is titled Eve of the Daleks.

Two more special episodes, featuring Whittaker as the Doctor, will air in 2022.

The first of these is scheduled for early in the year, although a release date is yet to be announced.

The final special episode has been slated for late 2022, and it will mark the end of Whittaker’s stint as the eponymous character.

Season 14 of the sci-fi series should start in the winter of 2022 and it marks the return of Russell T Davies.

A brand-new Doctor would have been cast as the titular character takes on a new incarnation.

A trailer for Eve of the Daleks has been released and it features actress and comedian Aisling Bea.

Adjani Salmon has also joined the cast of the New Year’s Day special, which features the iconic villains.

The pair are stuck in a time loop with the killer robots and it is down to the Doctor to find a way out.

Fans have taken to the trailer comments to express their excitement.

ZA said: “This trailer looks great hopefully they keep it intimately scary not just massive scale earth domination.”

Morgan Contursi said: “YES YES YES. This looks like a psychological horror episode and I LOVE THEM. THE ATMOSPHERE IS SO CREEPY IT LOOKS SO GOOD.”

Meanwhile, TheCosmic SpaceGoon added: “I was originally not happy that they were bringing the Daleks back for a New Years Special (Mainly because they have literally been in EVERY New Years Special and I’m more of a Christmas Special kind of person) but this trailer and concept looks pretty promising.”

Jack30hrv observed: “When it glitches back and starts the loop again, can anyone hear part of the TARDIS materialisation sound?

“That’s probably what it is and I think it’s a great touch if it is. Also love the fact that they’ve kept the TARDIS as a key element for this episode as it was obviously left in a bad way during this series.”

The identity of the new Doctor after Whittaker’s departure is yet to be announced.

Odds are still on for It’s A Sin star Lydia West to become the 14th Doctor, behind her co-star Olly Alexander.

West has spoken out about the rumours and she said it would be “an honour” to accept the role.

She told Radio Times: “I mean the fact I’ve been named as one of the favourites is quite special. I’m glad people think I could do it!”

Doctor Who will return with a special episode on BBC One on New Year’s Day.
