Great news for Doctor Who fans, the New Year’s Day special Revolution of the Daleks will be available to watch live and on-demand in Ultra-High Definition (UHD) and High Dynamic Range (HDR) on BBC iPlayer.

Entitled ‘Revolution of the Daleks’, the feature length special of the global hit series stars Jodie Whittaker, Tosin Cole, Mandip Gill  and Bradley Walsh, along with John Barrowman MBE who will be reprising his role as Captain Jack Harkness. Viewers last saw the Thirteenth Doctor at the end of series 12 where her fate was left hanging in the balance as she was locked away in a high-security alien prison with no hope of escape. In the upcoming Festive Special, Yaz, Ryan and Graham are far away on Earth and having to carry on with their lives without her. However they soon discover a disturbing plan forming. A plan which involves a Dalek. How can you fight a Dalek without the Doctor? Even with Captain Jack’s help, the gang are set to face one of their biggest and most frightening challenges yet…

Fans can watch the UHD version of the episode live and on-demand on iPlayer, and those watching live with compatible TVs will be prompted to press red to watch in UHD. Viewers can check whether their TV is compatible on the BBC iPlayer FAQ.

In addition to the new Doctor Who special, the BBC will also be making The Queen’s Christmas Broadcast available to watch in UHD and HDR, as well as new drama series Black Narcissus and Meerkat: A Dynasties Special, and David Attenborough’s new landmark natural history series A Perfect Planet will be available to watch as a box set in UHD and HDR after the first episode airs.
