A new set of production stills from the Doctor Who New Year’s special, Resolution were released by the BBC.
I will provide some plot and cast information to go with them.
Ryan Sinclair meets his father, Aaron in a Sheffield cafe. Ryan’s body language is not receptive.
Love interests Mitch (Nikesh Patel) and Lin (Charlotte Ritchie). Note that some of the photos are of Lin wearing a police uniform.
Is Lin inadvertently creating Dalek armour or is she examining Dalek parts which were dug up?
Mitch examines a bone fragment with a book on the table, likely a book on the history of The Order of the Garter. Another book in his lab is titled An Archaeology of the Early Anglo-Saxon Kingdoms
Michael Ballard plays the Sergeant.
The international/historical characters:
Though she is not credited with a speaking role, six-foot-tall dancer and stunt performer Lauren Burton plays a Siberian warrior.
I haven’t been able to discover the name of the next performers. Several of them are seen digging with shovels.
An interesting side note is that these various international and historical figures were filmed on the same beach on Porthcawl with artificial snow sprayed on the sand for Lauren Burton’s Siberian scenes.
Aside from her traditional wrap, this woman is wearing modern dress. The characters appear to be from disparate times in history.
