A new teaser photo for Doctor Who’s New Year Day special has materialised – and it’s gone done very well with fans.


Presented with a picture of Jodie Whittaker standing in front of a fireworks display, Whovians are rejoicing about a new addition to The Doctor’s outfit: a multi-coloured scarf, one seemingly straight out the wardrobe of Tom Baker’s Doctor.

And the scarf has gained approval with one area of the fandom in particular…

The photo was also released with a few new details about the special, which we now know will see The Doctor, Ryan, Graham and Yaz returning home to battle a “terrifying evil” from “the centuries of Earth’s history”.

Not only is this intriguing, but confirms that all companions will survive the current series.

And if you needed any more convincing, the BBC has also unveiled a preview picture of the episode, which sees the gang examining some bones.

WARNING: Embargoed for publication until 00:00:01 on 27/11/2018 - Programme Name: Doctor Who Series 11 - TX: n/a - Episode: Special (No. n/a) - Picture Shows: **EARLY RELEASE IMAGE** **Strictly Embargoed until 27/11/2018 00:00:01** Yaz (MANDIP GILL), The Doctor (JODIE WHITTAKER), Ryan (TOSIN COLE), Graham (BRADLEY WALSH) - (C) BBC/ BBC Studios - Photographer: Sophie Mutevelian TL

We would say that's an ominous sign for the episode to come, but ultimately it's just given us another angle of that scarf in its full glory.
