Mark your calendars Whovians, we will know within the next few months, at the very latest, whether we are getting a Doctor Who Christmas Special 2019 or not.
2018 was the first time, since 2005, where we did not have a Doctor Who Christmas Special. Instead, we had a New Year’s Day Special. Depending on who you talk to, or what you read, the decision to change the annual event was considered a disappointment.
Whatever side of the division you fall on, however, Whovians are curious to see what will happen in 2019. Are we going to have a Doctor Who Christmas Special 2019? Will it be a New Year’s Day Special again? Or something else?
Currently, nothing from Team Who has come out to confirm or deny what is happening this year. But, if you were to dive into the timey wimey stuff of the web and have a good look around, you will find reports stating that all of the potential options are happening.

Thankfully, confirmation is due very soon. Personally, I’m hoping Doctor Who will be in attendance during this year’s 2019 NYCC and we will find out something about Series 12 and any upcoming specials then, but at the very latest, we will know within a matter of months.

This is because the UK Christmas TV listings are set to be announced. Made known via Twitter, the Christmas highlights will be revealed on Tuesday, November 26. If nothing about Doctor Who is mentioned during the highlights, the full listings are to be confirmed on Tuesday, December 3.
The TV listing will extend from Saturday, December 21, to Friday, January 3. So, whether we are getting a Doctor Who Christmas Special 2019 or a New Year’s Day Special, either one will appear in the UK Christmas TV listings. Of course, if nothing appears in the listings, we can assume there are no specials planned for fans.
