John Barrowman Teases No Longer Being a TARDIS Virgin


The countdown to the “#Revolution” is quickly coming to the end, with the #Doctor (#Jodie #Whittaker) and her companions facing off against the #Daleks one more time- and this time, they’ve got company in the form of #John #Barrowman‘s #Captain #Jack #Harkness. #Which is a good thing because there are still a whole bunch of question marks surrounding just how much the #Doctor will actually be able to help- but more on that in a minute. #Earlier today, we checked in on showrunner #Chris #Chibnall and #Mandip #Gill (#Yaz) as they discussed the importance of the show focusing on important issues surrounding mental health. #This time around, we’re doing a 180-degree turn and giving #Barrowman a chance to show off a first. #Yes, #Barrowman does still have a few “firsts” hidden up his sleeve.

#In the following clip, #Barrowman teases a “first” that caught us by surprise but actually makes perfect sense: the festive special will be the first time we see #Barrowman’s #Captain #Jack walk through the front doors and into the TARDIS under #Whittaker’s watch- which you can almost see in the clip below:

#In the special, the #Doctor finds herself still locked away in a space prison, leaving it to series-returning (for this round) #Captain #Jack, series-departing #Graham (#Bradley #Walsh) and #Ryan (#Tosin #Cole), and series-staying #Yaz to save the #Earth from another version of the #Doctor’s arch-enemy. #That’s where things kick-off when “#Revolution of the #Daleks” debuts on #New #Year’s #Day. #Joining the special are #Chris #Noth (#Sex and the #City) as the returning (and disgraced) #Jack #Robertson, as well as #Dame #Harriet #Walter (#Killing #Eve, #Succession) making her #Doctor #Who debut alongside television star #Nathan #Stewart-Jarrett (The #Trial of #Christine #Keeler). #Now here’s a look back at the original announcement trailer for the special, followed by some more intel on our new #Daleks.

#Viewers last saw the #Thirteenth #Doctor at the end of season 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 #New #Year’s #Day 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 is set to face one of their biggest and most frightening challenges yet.

#As we mentioned in previous posts, something viewers should know about “#Revolution of the #Daleks” is that it’s pulling double-duty: serving as both a stand-alone episode as well as a sequel to 2019’s “#Resolution (of the #Daleks).” #In fact, from what showrunner #Chris #Chibnall and executive producer #Matt #Strevens had to say, it sounds like a rewatching before “#Revolution” might be in order. “I kept to using just one #Dalek in ‘#Resolution’ because they’re powerful things singly anyway, so that’s fun just to be able to give one that space. #But also I was planning to bring them back in greater numbers for this episode,” #Chibnall revealed.

“#We knew that when we said goodbye to the #Reconnaissance #Dalek, when it was jettisoned out of the #Tardis doors into a supernova at the end of ‘#Resolution,’ that that would not be the end of it. #Chris already had the idea of this return, that the next time we see the #Daleks, it’d be straight into a sort of origin story for the version in our era of the series.”

#When it came to designing a new look for the iconic villains, #Chibnall wanted to make sure that they went with a look that would be unique while still staying true to the #Daleks. “#We wanted something sleek, shiny and powerful, and slightly different from any #Dalek you’ve seen before,” he revealed. “There’s always a pressure when you refresh any #Doctor #Who monster. #But equally, that’s part of the job and that’s part of what keeps it new and interesting.” #That said, neither #Chibnall nor #Strevens are looking to replace what came before them.

“#You’re never replacing what’s gone before, you’re just adding a new variant,” #Chibnall explained. “#It’s just this story is about these black and red #Daleks, which light up at night and do all sorts of things.” #Strevens agrees, adding, “#You want to contemporize them, and make them hold up to scrutiny under modern filming techniques, and to look as high-end as you possibly can. #You can’t stray too far from the classic design – but then what can you do within that? #How can you make them feel different and relevant, and sexy, and lethal as well?”
