In lieu of the traditional Christmas Day special, Chris Chibnall and the BBC treat fans to a New Year's Day special titled "Resolution." In arguably the strongest Series 11 episode, The Doctor and Fam face off against the Daleks in a story that begins in the 9th century and later features the return of Ryan's father. Since Doctor Who is not expected to return until early 2020, this appears to be the only offering we'll receive in 2019.

In the first bonus episode, Dave and Wayne discuss the just concluded Series 11 of Doctor Who starring the new Doctor Jodie Whittaker. We agree that all three companions are highly likable and performed admirably, but none were really developed by new showrunner Chris Chibnall. Wayne doesn't like fewer episodes and the elimination of the Christmas episode, while Dave finds some of the stories boring.
